Choosing a Homesite – What You Need to Consider

Street in new housing development Pond Creek

Choosing where to build your new home is among the first and most important things you need to do in your new home construction journey.  Many people feel it appropriate to seek and find their home site on their own or with a Realtor®.  While this is not a bad way to begin, before you sign on the dotted line to purchase the parcel, you really need to have your builder conduct a site visit.  There are so many variables related to a home site that will impact the total cost of your new home.  These costs may be completely acceptable to you, or they may come as a surprise.  Either way, informed decisions are always preferable to uninformed decisions.  One of the saddest things that we witness as builders is having a client come to us, all excited about building their dream home, and not realizing that they cannot afford every selection they had been dreaming of due to extensive site work they did not figure in to their new home project budget, or worse, they can’t afford to build on that site at all.  Another dismal situation is obtaining your home site, then bringing your dream home plans into the builder only to find out that because of setbacks or septic placement issues, your dream home will not fit on the lot you just purchased.

When you are looking for builders in the Poconos, be sure to bring them into your home site search before you buy.  Conscientious Pocono builders will work with your Realtor® to find you the perfect home site that will accommodate your house plan and come at a budget that is not a surprise to you.

RGB Custom Home Builders is one of those conscientious Pocono builders.  We will conduct site visits for you on any home site you are considering buying free of charge.  We will help you understand the topography of the home site and possible implications such as fill dirt, blasting, local zoning requirements, POA restrictions or requirements and the list goes on.  So bring your builder into the process early.  We hope you choose RGB Custom Home Builder for your new Pocono home!  We would love to add you to the list of our many happy customers who have made us a builder to believe in!

Testimonials

To Everyone at RGB,
Trisha and I wanted to let everyone know how thrilled we are about our new home! As soon as people walk through our front door they can’t help but notice the openness of the layout and the richness of the rooms. We can’t say enough about the quality of workmanship when it came to putting this house together. One of the important factors for us was the “small things”. It was comforting to know that RGB was able to accomodate us, and how well they paid attention to every little detail to make sure we had the house we wanted. Thank you to everyone at RGB who built this home. We will pass on our wonderful experience to everyone we know. Please don’t hesitate to use us as a reference!!
