Building a new home on your own lot can be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of a lifetime. On Your Lot customers decide where they want to live, affording them the opportunity to consider important factors such as schools, community, traffic, and more, ensuring them that their family will have ready access to the amenities that are important to their lifestyle.
Choosing a builder with strong experience in the On Your Lot industry is the number one consideration for those wanting to build on their own property. Prospective homeowners should look for a builder with an established reputation within the industry and be sure to choose a builder that stands behind their homes with a good warranty program that includes a ten year structural warranty, such as the 2-10 HBW offered by Home Buyers Warranty Corporation. Your builder should have in-depth knowledge of zoning requirements and flood zones and be willing to assist you in locating property and financing, if needed.
There are five major costs associated with building on your lot:
- Water, community, or private well
- Sewer, community, or private septic system well
- Impact fees
Additional costs could be incurred for building-lot specific items, such as those required by code or included at the customer’s request. Examples of these types of cost include land clearing, driveways, walkways, and landscaping.
When comparing estimates from multiple builders, keep in mind that if an estimate sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There may be hidden costs not accurately reflected in the estimate, so always request a line-by-line review before signing on the dotted line.
