Requirements of Land for Building a Home

Land is the first basic requirement when embarking on building a house. But before you buy land, it is important that you know what kind of land you are getting. Based on the configuration of the land you have, it could impact on your entire project.

The following factors must be taken into consideration when you are buying land since they could impact on cost of building: -

  • The price and size of the land;

  • The configuration of the land - whether it is a triangular, square or rectangular piece of land;

  • The location of the land and topography. Is it flat or sloping, is the land in a low or high-income area? Is it in a new area or an area that is fairly advanced with potential for growth.

  • The covenants governing the land; what you are allowed to do and what you are not allowed to do;

  • Flood risk and other factors;

  • Is the water table very high or not?

  • The immediate surroundings, will influence the value of land; You may not want to build a half a million dollars home in an area where the buildings may be valued at a hundred and fifty thousand; Market value is critical;

  • Physical features, whether you have huge rocks, whether there are trees that you are going to use to shade your property, etc.;
