What comes first the building lot or the home design?

Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

Is there a better way to start your search for a new home if you are going to do new construction?

The answer, as you know, is it depends? If you know what your home looks like and everything you want in it, then you are forced to find a lot that will accomodate it. This process, of course, may not work as easily for someone on a budget as the room for error increases.the bigger the house design.

Fing the perfect lot allows for more flexibility. From here you can define the characteristics for the home that best match the lot. For example, a view lot on a rim or even an in-fill near downtown.

Many people are excited to start the journey with just a few ideas and then run. Another obvious point is the more time you put in on the fron end, the better the outcome. Meeting with professionals so that you can have someone to talk to is very helpful, especially if the home you intend to build is a luxury, estate or highly customized.

Take your time and ask questions. Finding the perfect lot is too small for what you want or the home you've designed does not fit well on the lot is very disappointeing.
