Western North Carolina land can provide owners with a chance to be creative and design the mountain home of their dreams. Buyers should be knowledgeable, however, of the various considerations presented by building in the mountains.
In establishing a building budget, be sure to take into account the available infrastructure versus what will need to be constructed. Is there city water or will you need a well? Can you hook into the city sewer system or should you budget for a septic system? Will retaining walls be needed, and how long and sloped will the driveway be? While sellers list a property as a "buildable" lot, will the lot allow you to build the dream home you envision?
Greybeard Realty's land offerings have some tremendous features including amazing views and incredibly lush vegetation. In order to maximize the property, Greybeard Realty suggests that you take your builder to the land of your dreams prior to purchasing it, particularly if it is a steeply sloped piece of land. Building is possible, but you may need to accommodate the land in some ways, and best to work that into your budget prior to purchase.
