If you are ready to build a custom home, then you might be looking to purchase a lot to have your home built on. You might even think that you should buy your lot before you ever sit down and talk to a custom home builder. However, you will probably find that you are better off talking to the custom home builder first for the reasons below and more.
They Might Know of a Good Lot for You
In many cases, custom home builders already own lots that they are willing to build on and sell to their customers. Even if this is not the case, they often know about good lots that are available. Therefore, if you work with your custom home builder to purchase the lot to build your new custom home on, you might be able to find out about lots that you wouldn't otherwise have access to, or you might be able to get a deal on your lot.
They May Be Able to Help With Financing
In many cases, custom home builders can help set their customers up with mortgage lenders that will finance the cost of the lot and the custom home together. If you're concerned about coming up with the money to purchase the lot before you begin having your custom home built, this can be a good way to make things more affordable for you.
They Can Help Ensure the Lot Is a Good Fit for the Home That You Want
Lastly, you will probably want to talk to your custom home builder about both the lot and home that you have in mind before making any major moves. You'll need to make sure that the lot is big enough for the home that you want to build, for one thing, and you'll need to make sure that the lot is actually buildable. You might not really know what to look for when making this determination, but your custom home builder can take a look at the lot that you're interested in and can help you determine whether or not it's feasible to build your custom home on that lot. If changes will need to be made to the lot before building can begin, they can talk to you about the work that needs to be done and can help you determine how much it will cost and whether or not it will be worth it. By working with your custom home builder first, you can help ensure that you don't make any costly mistakes when buying a lot, and you can help ensure that building can begin as quickly and smoothly as possible.
