Where to Begin

Finding land is the first step in building your Premier Home. Our specialists can help you start this process, including introductions to local realtors. Once you have chosen your land, our site analysis will evaluate and plan everything you’ll need for delivery and beautiful site orientation.

 


What To Consider

Premier Homes generally perform better in a variety of site conditions. Before purchasing a lot, or if you are narrowing down 2-3 potential land options, we recommend a Premier Homes location specialist to ensure successful home delivery. During your search, consider the variables below that affect site costs.

Lot Properties That Affect Building Cost

  • Proximity and cost of utilities such as electricity, gas, septic/sewer and water/well, all of which require permitting and construction.

  • The cost and extent of site development; for example, steeply sloped lots increase excavation, grading, and foundation costs significantly but can include the extra square footage of a “walk out” or fully finished basement.

  • Additional design features, such as decking, trellises, finished lower levels and site-built connectors.

  • Environmental restrictions such as wetlands, conservation, or coastal areas.

  • Access to the site for delivery and installation.


We recommend that you request the following resources from the seller before you put an offer on the land:

  • Boundary survey that contains property lines, setbacks, contours (topo map), location of utilities (water, sewer, electrical, septic restrictions) and environmental restrictions (wetlands, conservation land, etc.)

  • Soils Report (if applicable) will detail geology and seismic data so a structural engineer can determine necessary foundation requirements.

  • Planning Dept. Regulations (using your site’s Assessor Parcel Number or ‘APN#’).

  • Find out if your local jurisdiction requires any special planning reviews such as Design Review, Historical Review, etc., from the local building department.

  • Photographs of your site in .jpg format.
