Learn about the key site selection factors to consider when building your new home.

In the competitive home market, many people are opting to build custom homes to ensure they get exactly what they want. Building a home comes with many benefits, as homebuyers have the ability to design their layout, plan a timetable with their builder, and choose the location of their new home. Site selections, including the site location, price, size, building company, and more are all crucial factors to consider when building a home.


The location of your home is one of the first crucial decisions you will make. There are so many factors that go into choosing the perfect lot, including the neighborhood, yard size, proximity to work/school, and other nearby amenities that you find most important. It’s important to find a neighborhood that is a good fit for your lifestyle, and is an area that you can picture yourself living in for years to come. Take your time when searching for your perfect lot, as the location of your home is one of the most important choices you will make!


Next, you must determine a price range that you are comfortable spending on your custom home. This may take a while to come up with a realistic budget, as there are a lot of things to keep in mind. It’s best to discuss your price range with a loan officer to help answer questions including what size home you are looking for and what are home values like in the area that you are considering.


Designing your home is often one of the most fun and rewarding parts of the custom home building process. Depending on the builder you choose, you have the control to make your home exactly how you want it. This includes the size of the home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the layout, and the option of adding certain rooms such as a playroom or home office. In addition to the layout, you can customize the architecture of your home, and pick out design elements. Home builders and designers/decorators are a huge help during this process, as they can help you bring your vision to life.

Home Builder

Another essential factor of building a home is choosing the best builder for the job. There are many builders out there, so it’s important to do your research to find the very best company. Look at their reputation, track record, project gallery of custom homes, reviews, and any additional features they offer.
