Important Facts to Consider When Choosing a Site for Your New Home

In the current housing market, several new homeowners are choosing to have a custom built home. This allows for new owners to have the layouts they prefer as well as the details they desire. There is an abundance of benefits that come with building your home from scratch, such as selecting your layout, location, timetable, and even your builder. There are a few things you should keep in mind prior to breaking ground on your new home, such as your building site. Lion’s Den Construction has a few suggestions regarding site selection to help you make an informed choice that fits your needs.

Your Home Location

The most important decision you will make is selecting the location of your new home. When choosing the lot, you will need to think about the community, land size, proximity to school, hospitals, and work, and more. You will need to ensure that all of these aspects are a perfect fit with your lifestyle to help make your new home into your dream home.


Once you have selected a location you will need to nail down a firm budget. Custom homes cost more than existing homes, but that doesn’t mean you have to go broke in the process. Speak with your loan officer in regards to values in the area to help get a ballpark figure. Then start adding in your desired or must have features to create a realistic budget for your home.

Home Builder

Who you pick to build your home will greatly affect the final results. It is important to choose a builder that has experience, proper licensing, and a good reputation. Check online and with neighbors to get suggestions of quality builders for your new home.

Layout & Size

Your home design is most likely the best part of building a customized home. Regardless of which builder you ultimately choose, you will have a great deal of leeway when it comes to how your house looks. The amount of bathrooms, bedrooms, and family areas as well as the layout will all be within your purview. You can make decisions on the design elements and the architecture as well. If you plan to work from home, now is a great time to add a home office or a dedicated play room for the kids.
