If you’re in the market for building a custom home, one question that often pops up is which comes first; selecting a lot and location, or a custom home builder? Are you in the same boat? While we don’t have a definitive answer for you, we can provide you with some insight to help your decision-making a little easier.
Location is one of the main priorities for many homeowners, so for some it makes sense to purchase the lot before finding a builder. A major benefit here is you’re able to walk over the property with your home builder. This gives you time to discuss specific design and landscape options that may work with the lot of your choice.
If location isn’t a huge priority for you, then consulting with a contractor first might be the place to start. You’ll have the opportunity to go over various properties and floor plans with your builder to find one that suits your needs and budget. In addition, your builder may have useful build ideas and suggestions on any lots you may potentially wish to purchase.
In conclusion, it’s ultimately up to you. If location is a key factor for you, then by all means, find your perfect lot first. On the flip side, if you prefer the expertise of an experienced builder to help you find the perfect lot for building your dream home, select a custom home contractor first. The choice is yours.
