When You Can't Find What You Want

Consider the alternative to a pre-owned home:

  • If you must have new...
  • If you can wait for the right house...
  • If you really want something special...
  • If you want selection control over most features...
  • If you want your personality embedded in the house...
  • If you are prepared for the challenge of developing land...
  • If you understand the inter-relationship between budget-schedule-quality...
  • If you have finances in-place to support design and construction progress payments...

Then buying land only may be a viable option for you. The architect can draw your vision. The contractactor can build your dream.

I'm a firm believer in the value of owning real estate. For those who can, purchasing a lot and building their dream home has enormous advantages over purchasing a pre-owned property and I would encourage every homeowner to consider this option first, if at all possible. 

Building to your specifications on land that you have purchased is not an activity exclusively for the well-off buyer. This practice can be adopted by any prospective home owner with a good credit record. There are many checks and balances that, if followed, will ensure a successful outcome.

PHOTO: I am the owner's engineer/owner's representative on a new estate development. It was a project milestone on Dec 5. We poured 145 cubic meters of concrete for the foundation walls.  The concrete mix trucks started arriving at 8 am with the last one (the 16th truck) being pumped out under worklights by 6 pm.
