Your immediate concerns might be focused on how many bedrooms, or how high your ceilings are, but one of the most important things to consider when building a home is the location. Before starting the building process, think about where you want you and your family to live. Consider if you will be in this location short term or long term. Typically, it’s long term since you are building your dream home. You will want to know your options for school districts, shopping options, entertainment, and hospitals. You might also want to research the town history and crime rate. Once you decide on a location, see which lots are available, compare them, and choose the best one for your dream home.
