What to Consider Before Buying Land to Build Your Custom Home – Part 3

Tuscany Homes, one of the top builders in Clark County, wants you to consider several important factors before you buy land to build your custom home.

In the first two parts of this three-part series, Tuscany discussed location, utilities, resource rights, zoning, and restrictions.

In part three, Tuscany Homes is going to detail the neighborhood, maintenance, and those dreaded setbacks.

Try to imagine what the property will look like in two, five, and even ten years in the future? Not asking this question is a big mistake a lot of buyers make. No one can predict the future, but try to make educated guesses.

  • Is there a chance that the quiet road will become a busy street?
  • Will someone build next to your property and eliminate your view?
  • What are the chances that the trees behind your lot get cut down?

Who is responsible for maintenance? Some neighborhoods have community areas that need yearly upkeep.

Try to learn if your property comes with any maintenance obligations involving the surrounding neighborhood.

What kind of setbacks does your property have? By setbacks, we don’t mean the bank lost your paperwork. We mean “setback” as in how close you can build to the edge of your property.

This can affect where you place your custom home as well as the size of your home.
