Selecting a lot is the first step in the building process. There are many considerations in choosing the perfect lot on which to build your home.

  2. No judgments against the seller

  3. No restriction as to the use of the land or the deed

  4. No unpaid taxes or assessments

  5. Minimum of street frontage

  9. Good topsoil and soil percolation

  10. Good view

  11. No low spots to hold water

  12. Water drains off land, away from house

  13. No fill
