Houses have always been of immense interest for any human beings and they literally crave to have a good house of their own. This statement becomes aptly justified when you make a weekend tour to home, existing or new. But, notwithstanding this immense zeal on your part, what seems to be the biggest problem for you is to find a right house in the right place. This apparently looks futile and you start leaning towards the idea of buying a vacant land and employing somebody to build the house. Now, the question arises, is it truly fruitful for you? Perhaps, ‘no’ is the answer.

Be cock-sure about one thing that buying an already built house is going to cost lesser than the other options. In fact, that is the first thing for you to decide before buying a vacant land.
Builder’s economy of scale is undoubtedly a very important thing to make acquaintance with before you go onto buy a vacant land. If a builder buys a land for development, they eventually pay wholesale price making a subdivision of one parcel. As a result of which, the cost usually comes down for them. Whereas, in order to buy a land you are to pay the retail price which is of course much higher. As for an instance, if you pay $6.50 per ream in case of buying one ream of multi-purpose paper, it would come down to $4.50/ream while buying a case of the paper. However, this principle is in consistency with your decision of buying a land or a house.

A Real Estate investment involves your financing for three different aspects of a same project like house construction, building lot and for property already completed. As far as the economic survey is concerned, all the banks and mortgage companies do not offer lot loans and construction financing and for this discouraging scenario, you are in absolute need to come up with your cash for 20%- 25% of the purchase of the lot. For you, a loan is needed in order to complete the site work and house construction and after the house construction is completed, the two other loans are going to be replaced by a permanent loan on the entire property. Noteworthy, you are going to pay some fees for the loan.

You are in need of a builder, Real Estate attorney, and may be an architect. Appointing an architect for the purpose of designing is very costly. So, search for a smaller but experienced builder because a reputed builder would not be interested in making just one house. Before tying up with a builder, you should have a contract paper maintaining all the details and you should have your attorney. Importantly, before buying a lot, you should collaborate with your builder.

Once again, be sure about the actual condition that you are going to be in. For a builder, it is $515,950 for the sale of 3,750 sq. ft. home in a new home community. There will be all-round facilities like three car garage, skylights or anything you want. Whereas, building a house in your bought land gets a figure like $516,250, for instance. However, this expense excludes many factors and also, it would, by no means, a house that you are in quest of.
