First things first, before you choose a home builder in Lake Anna or a builder in Fredericksburg or Louisa County don’t take the choice of land for granted. In the excitement of planning your dream home don’t neglect what that custom home is going on. Fortunately, you have already decided to build on Lake Anna, or we hope you do. Here are a few things to think about as this is probably the biggest purchase of your life (no pressure).
Make Sure To Inquire About The Potential Site On Lake Anna
When you are with a realtor or builder make sure to inquire about the home site. This is a great starting point. What has been done to the land? Has the local government approved it as a place where you can build a home. Are there any existing survey results concerning soil, conservation, plumbing, utilities etc. Naturally the more that is done and researched the better.
Imagine How The Home Will Function
Things you may not even consider today will be a big factor in your use of the house and yard. Is the yard pretty open with lots of direct sunlight? Or are you in shaded wooded lot with lots of trees? Naturally if you want that traditional green yard with carpet like grass in the back, a wooded lot is not going to make it easy. Inversely, if you want a shady spot where you can string up your hammock, a bright open yard with the sun beating down is not that wise.
Your Future Needs
Don’t just look at the parcel of land for today. Ask yourself what your plans are for the home and lot in the next five years, ten years and longer. What if you want to build a pool, extend the patio, or a make a bigger deck. Naturally the land needs to afford you these options.
Choosing The Right Site On Lake Anna
If there was ever a time for experience and quality, now is it. Make sure you talk to a builder who has built on Lake Anna and understands the soil, topography, and municipal equipment. Also make sure that builder focuses on quality and aesthetics. A good custom home has to match the features of the lot you choose and must be of the highest quality. Any builder that cuts corners could be problematic for working with your site selection of custom home design.
