As you recall, we highly recommended in a previous article the first decision you need to make when building a new home is finding the right company. Once you’ve performed all of your homework and decided on the right contractor, the next step can be described in three famous real estate words: Location, Location, Location.
It’s extremely important to be very selective when choosing your new construction lot; after all, this will be the location you and your family call home for several years, possibly even multiple generations! So, what are some of the things you must consider when it comes to building on your land?
Here’s a quick list of services and amenities intended to help you make the right decision:
- Schools: Whether you have children, or are planning on starting a family, make certain you perform your due diligence when it comes to investigating the local school district. Value Build creates incredible homes throughout central North Carolina and even into South Carolina! Fortunately, these areas also play host to some of the best school districts in the country.
- Parks & Recreation: Regardless of your parental status, it’s always nice to be close to multiple parks and walking trails. Once again, North Carolina and South Carolina is blessed with some of the most beautiful parks you’ll ever see.
- Transportation: Of course it’s imperative to have easy access to major highways. Value Build will gladly review your land and provide detailed information about everything from the major thoroughfares to the quaintest of country roads nearest the site of your new custom home.
- Shopping: Doesn’t it seem like every time you go to the pantry for a cup of sugar or open the refrigerator for a glass of milk you’re fresh out? Certainly it would be convenient to be close to a grocery store or retail center. Depending on where your lot is located, you may be just minutes away from retail stores or, if you prefer, you can build on your land far away from the madding crowd—the choice is yours!
The above list merely scratches the service when it comes to selecting the perfect location for your new construction home. It’s highly recommended that you also speak to our current and past Value Build family of customers to get an idea of what to expect when working with us.
