The Custom Corner, Choosing a Custom Homesite in Verrado – By Tim Klimek, Associate Broker and Verrado Resident

When considering purchasing a homesite, there are many factors to consider. Allow me to share with you the reasons why making the right decision when selecting a custom homesite is vital to the custom home building process. The homesite you select is the only thing that cannot be changed when building your dream home. Changes may be made to the interior and exterior features including architectural design, cabinet color, flooring and various other features and appointments that make your home uniquely yours. The homesite you chose will never change. I encourage buyers to discover all they can about a particular homesite and visit the site during different times throughout the day to best understand where the sun is rising and setting, where the optimal views lie, setbacks and where future neighboring homes will be built. Identify the key characteristics of each homesite and make sure the site complements the design you are envisioning.
When choosing a custom homesite, it is essential to assemble a knowledgeable team of professionals. Working with a realtor that understands the current market conditions, design guidelines and building requirements for each site is a must. Interviewing an experienced builder and architect is also paramount. There are a number of realtors, builders and architects to choose from, however, working with someone experienced in the community you wish to build is important to the success of the project. The team you choose will need to keep your budget in mind every step of the way and your homesite choice is a large part of the budget.
