How To Pick a Home Site

Couple planning future.

Now that you have decided to build your new home in Chesterfield and picked out your floor plan it’s time to choose your home site. Based on the floor plan you have chosen there may be a variety of lots available to you. Not All floor plans fit on every Lot but your New Home Consultant can help you make the right lot decision for your needs . Here are a few things to consider when picking out your lot.

Terrain

Keep you terrain in mind when picking your home site. Whether it is flat, hilly, or sloped it can either work for or against your plans. Sloped Losts are desirable for walk-out basements.

Size

Large or small the size of the lot influences the size of your new home. Do you want a large front, back or side yard? Larger lots are generally more costly and provide more privacy while smaller lots are less expensive.

Orientation

How do you want your home situated on your lot? The direction your home faces can influence the heating and cooling or your home, your window treatments as well as your flowerbeds.

Location

Do you want a corner lot, a lot in a cul-de-sac? Do you want to be close to the amenities in your neighborhood? Keep in mind that the location of your new home can determine the amount of privacy you will experience.

Keeping these things in mind will help you to choose the right site for your beautiful new home in Chesterfield.
