Finding that perfect lot on which to build your custom home is an exciting experience. When all the right factors align, and you’ve found a spot that suits your family and your future, that process is almost impossible to put into words…
… of course, we’ll try, anyway! In today’s blog, we’re taking a look at the 5 P’s of a perfect lot. Read on to see how this might help you find your own ideal property!
The first consideration when reviewing a lot is, of course, the physical property itself. Where is it? Is it near a body of water, surrounded by lots of land, or cozily located on a corner? Does it offer you the kind of space you want, or the natural scenery you’ve been craving in your dream home?
As you consider the property, also be sure to keep in mind the things you can change (fixing an unruly lawn, trimming trees, etc.) and the things you can’t, like the physical setting of the space.
Another key consideration is the perimeter, or surroundings, of your property. Your potential lot might not include a body of water, for example, but the land just beyond it might. Similarly, your property might be affected by external factors like traffic, neighboring buildings, construction, etc. None of these factors has to be a deal maker or breaker; each, however, is a part of your property’s perimeter worth thinking about as you search for the perfect place to make your home.
How does your potential property fulfill your practical needs? Your proximity to work, location in the school district, etc. are all worth thinking about as you make a decision. These practical matters are, of course, just as important as the look and feel of your space.
What’s the neighborhood like? While you shouldn’t base your property decision entirely on your next-door neighbors, the people and community that surround your home can be a good indicator of the kind of place you’ll be settling into. Make it a great one!
Finally, consider the potential of your possible property. Even if it’s not completely perfect, can you envision a property that meets every item on your checklist at some point in the future—room for a pool, garden, space to roam, etc.? The future fitness of your property—and its ability to transform with your family over time—can be a great determining factor.
