Does it cost more to build on my land or in a community?

This depends on the community and the condition of the homesite. When building on your lot, the homesite needs to be prepared, utilities need to be established or modified, soils need testing, additional permits or approvals are required, and labor is more costly building just one home.

In a community that is in the development stage, the developer has already prepared the land, and installed utilities. In addition, soil testing, permits, plan designs all are engineered just once and typically several homes are built at the same time reducing overhead and labor costs.

The good news is we can build your dream home at your chosen location that is just right for you!
