What to Consider Before Buying a Home Site in Maryland

What is the availability of utilities?

Are utilities such as gas, electric, and water easily accessible? If not, extra costs will be incurred in the process of bringing them out to your new home site in Maryland. Not that this should dissuade you from making the purchase if you’re willing to pay for bringing utilities to the site, but it’s important to factor this into your overall decision.

Are there any permitting or public fees concerns?

Some lots may require an extraordinary permit or public facilities fees. These in turn can affect the timing and cost of the building process.

How does the topography match with my wants and needs?

It’s important to consider the topography of your new home site in terms of your wants and needs for your home. Will it meet the needs of your outdoor living goals? Will you be able to install that deck, outdoor kitchen, or pool you want. Does the sun move across the property in a way that promotes natural lighting. Does the setting match up with the architecture and style I have in mind for the home? All of these are important questions to consider.
