Should I buy land before contacting a builder, or talk to a builder before I buy land?
As a custom home builder, our business model is such that we generally work with clients who already own land and we build on their lot.However, it can be advantageous to contact a builder while you’re still researching land, as we can help you get a better idea of the kind of land you’ll want to build on.Ultimately though, the land you end up with will dictate much about your home’s design. So while it may be obvious that we can’t start building a home until you have a place to build it, what might not be so obvious—but is just as important to know—that we really can’t design a home either until we know exactly what kind of building conditions we’ll have.All that to say that generally, you will want to own land before you start talking to a builder about design and pricing. If you’re interested, we can work with you and one of our lending partners to bundle your loan for the land and your construction loan, so feel free to contact us if that’s what you’d like to do. Also, if you don’t have a realtor yet, feel free to contact us and we’ll connect you with one of our preferred real estate agents who can help you find land.
