5 Tips for Finding a Maryland Home Lot

Narrow Down Your Locations

Naturally, location is going to play one of the biggest, if not the biggest roles in your selection process. Narrow down your ideal locations both by geographical area and community. Do you want a rural setting, or more of a suburban lifestyle? Make this decision before you start your search.

Choose a Builder You Want to Work With

Choose a builder before you begin your search in earnest. A builder will be able to help you find the right Maryland home lot for you. Lifetime Series Homes offers our lot search assistance service, which we’ll talk more about below!

Look at the Lot from Google Street View

Pictures on a website are one thing, but Google Street View will give you a better idea of where the lot is located and put it into a better context in terms of the neighborhood.

Do a Site Visit

If you find a Maryland home lot you’re interested in, always do a site visit. There’s no substitute for seeing a home lot in person. This will give you the lay of the land and allow you to discover any factors that could make construction more difficult than you had anticipated.

Look into Infrastructure and Utilities and Restrictions

Will you incur extra costs to run utilities to the lot, or do they already exist? Will the soil support a septic tank and septic drain field. Does the lot offer easy access to public roads? In addition, are there any building restrictions you need to know about? These could include restrictions due to historic preservation laws or environmental conditions.
