Selecting a Lot for Your Custom Home

The foundation of every great home is in place long before the cement is poured—that’s why lot selection is so important. However, finding a lot in Arlington is more than just finding the perfect location for your home; there are zoning and building regulations that need to be followed, demolition requirements, percolation tests, and more. That’s why getting help with your lot selection is vital. The experts at Sekas Homes can help you find a lot that is not just beautiful, but also suitable and well-priced. We’ll ensure that the lot has the right grading and passes any percolation and land tests necessary to build your dream home.

The Benefits of Lot Selection Assistance

Some of the benefits of lot selection assistance in Arlington include finding or understanding:

Beautiful scenery and area – Of course, one of the top priorities when it comes to lot selection is finding an area that is beautiful, safe and in the right location for you and your family. When you work with Sekas Homes, we’ll take all of these considerations in mind as we help you select an ideal lot for your custom home—one that will complement the home design we’re creating for you.

Suitability – Purchasing a lot is a huge investment, and you don’t want to throw your money away on a lot you can’t build the home of your dreams on. Before you spend the money on a lot that’s beautiful, let Sekas Homes help you determine its suitability. This would include assessing building regulations, zoning laws, sewer and water lines, demolition and clearing costs, and more. The suitability of the lot is one of the most important determining factors during lot selection because certain building regulations and restrictions dictate the number of bedrooms and bathrooms a home can have, the number of floors allowed, whether or not there can be a basement and other constraints. Sekas Homes can help you by ensuring the lot you choose can accommodate the home you plan on building.

Percolation and other land testing – Related to the suitability of the lot, land testing, such as percolation tests, are essential to lot selection because some land types cannot be built upon. When you work with Sekas Homes to build your custom house in Alrington, our experienced staff will perform all land tests necessary to ensure the lot is suitable for building.

Affordability – Anytime you make a big investment in your future like purchasing a lot for your home, you want to be sure you’re getting your money’s worth. That’s why Sekas Homes will put their decades of experience to work for you to help you find the perfect lot at the right price. We understand the value of a good plot of land and know when you’re getting a fair price for your acres. Our years of experience and good reputation have helped us gain the trust of the community. Many sellers chose to sell their homes directly to Sekas Homes instead of going to market so we often have access to lots that never get listed.
