Contact Wendy Stassens, REALTOR®
When looking for property to build, it is important to work with experts knowledgeable about the local real estate market and current property valuations. Looking at property to purchase to build adds an additional dimension to the variables that you must evaluate in determining if a property will work for you. It is invaluable to have a professional real estate broker and builder working together to answer your questions.
Can you imagine buying a piece of property, and after closing discovering that it will be prohibitively expensive to build on the property because of the site development required?
What if the home you would like to build just does not fit the site?
Wouldn’t it be helpful to get your questions about the construction of your home answered before you put your money down on a property? Our in-house REALTOR® can answer all your real estate and construction questions before you put your money down, so you can be sure your dream property really can be the future site of your dream home, AND within a realistic budget.
