From Bare Land To Dream Home
Building a new home on bare land can be quite an adventure. While it will never be pain-free, it will be an exciting adventure, one whose memory you look back on fondly, or one you wish you’d never had. However, Elements will give you ways to make the fond memories more likely.
Buying bare land is the first challenge, and for the purposes of this guide we’re going to assume it’s a hurdle that you’ve already jumped over. Similiarly, we are assuming that you have worked out the utilities to your land as well. Now, you have got the property, but aren’t sure what step to take next.
(Note: If you haven’t yet bought your property, you may want to read some of our articles on the topic. Furthermore we would refer you to our “5 Steps To Buying Land For Your Dream Home” article.)
We’re going to cover three primary routes that you could take from here:
- First, select a construction lender to fund the construction of the home
- Next, pick aa architectural designer to design the home plans
- Finally, choose which builder is going to build the home (or whether you want to take on that challenge yourself)
You’ll learn the benefits of choosing each of these first. However, we are also going to show you why we believe that choosing your builder first is the best next step.
