Things to Consider Before Buying Land
First, look to see if the property has had a perk test done. Before building, the county is required to evaluate the soil at the site and determine how many bedrooms the land “perks” for. Then, make sure the permeability of the lot matches your planned number of bedrooms or can be adapted to do so.
If a perk test hasn’t yet been done, be sure to request one as part of your offer to purchase, and make the offer contingent on the property perking for the number of bedrooms you need.
If you‘re concerned about traffic patterns, visit the property at different times of the day. Go during rush hour and on the weekends to gauge noise levels.
Building a home is an exciting, and always fulfilling experience.
