I recently had the opportunity to speak with Stephen Tindle of Thomas James Homes to talk about some things to consider when purchasing land to build a new home or buying a brand new home.
✅ What is the zoning for the property?
✅ What are the site development requirements?
✅ Is the property legal, non-conforming?
✅ Are fire sprinklers required?
✅ Is the property in a flood zone?
✅ Get the concept and design approved by the planning department.
✅ Construction drawings for the building department to review and issue a building permit.
✅ Understand local requirements and restrictions
✅ Submit design for building permit
✅ 6-9 month process
✅ Consider a prefab home
✅ Hire a contractor early in the process
And as always, if you are thinking of buying or selling and are unsure of where to start, I can guide you through the journey. All I need is your destination and I will be your GPS to get you there.
