If you plan on building something, one of the first things you'll need to do is buy land. Of course, not all sites are created equal - some have wonderful solar exposures, some don't. Some properties require trees to be cleared, others have been logged already. At some point, with the help of your real estate agent, you'll start visiting them in person. This is when we can walk the site with you and can provide advice about buying one property or another.
On an initial site visit, we can point out any opportunities or challenges that we see. We can help you understand if a site is too steep or too flat to accomplish what you want to.
A feasibility period can often be negotiated, giving you time to complete basic testing for septic system in order to validate the site as a realistic option. During this period, we can look up basic plans on file with the city or county and make judgements about fitting your desired building or building on the site.
At the end of the day, when working with us, you'll be better suited in confidently choosing a property, getting your design and construction process off to a great start.
