We help you understand the hard costs such as purchase price, utilities, property taxes, topography and associated building costs, architectural restrictions and subdivision related costs. We also look at the “intangible” lot costs such as the view, location, schools, amenities, etc. By analyzing the costs associated with a lot we are able to present a realistic estimate on the true costs of building on a given site.
Oftentimes, a lot that may be less expensive, can be significantly more due to additional foundation costs caused by the topography (rise or fall of lot), septic issues on larger plots. By performing a lot analysis we have been able to save our clients many thousands of dollars by knowing up front how to cost engineer the plans for maximum value. Helping our clients find a lot that is best suited to their home design and lifestyle is a very rewarding part of the process.
The combined years of experience Stonecroft Homes brings to the process of choosing a lot is critical to the overall success of the construction of your new home. We have encountered sink holes, underground springs, organic fill, and the list goes on with clients who chose their lots without consulting Stonecroft in the beginning. Many times, these situations can be prevented or substantially mitigated by having Stonecroft Homes aid in the selection. We consider many variables up front and educate our clients on the pro's and con's of each site.
