Things to look for
I am in the beginning stages of trying to figure out what type of home we are going to be pursuing next (build or buy existing). I think we prefer to build (semi-custom) rather than buy existing, but have not ruled out either. As I start my research I am trying to get my head wrapped around all the details that come with having a house built. So here is an attempt of mine to get an idea of things to look for when having a house built that could significantly change the budget.
I would love input from you guys/gals on things I am unaware of.
- Lot size/shape/grading/clearing
- septic or city sewer
- Landscaping (including irrigations system)
- Houses with a lot of bump outs = $$
I am not so worried about finishes at this time(wood floors, moulding, lighting).
When I read about a $$/sqft does the sqft also include porches and garage space?
Thanks for the input!
