Land is always the first thing you look for when you decide to custom build your own home and finding the right piece of land isn’t always easy. There are many factors when deciding where you want to build including price, size, location and features of that land.

Things to Consider when Shopping for Land

Starting with price, you will want to find land that fits your budget including the home that you wish to build on it. Take into consideration that the average price for less than an acre of land in the Rochester MN area is between $80,000 and up. You will need to add that to the cost of the home you wish to build.

When finding a lot to build on, consider the amenities such as a desire for a wooded lot or mature trees, what is surrounding your land, is there privacy and will there be future projects that remove the features you purchased the land for.

Another question to ask is if the area you want to build on has HOA’s or are there guidelines or covenants in that area that would require you to do or not do something that you wanted to do such as building a fence for a pet or build a playhouse in the backyard.
