Building a house on your own land is a dream many people have. It can be a very cost-effective way to get the home you’ve always wanted, and it can be a lot of fun to do it yourself! Keep reading to learn about the entire process.

Get Financing

The first step to building a house on your land is to get financing. You’ll need to have the land paid for or have it identified before you can start the building process. There are a few different ways to finance your land purchase, and the best way will depend on your individual situation. 

Unless you are paying cash you will need to get a construction-to-perm loan from a bank or credit union. Whatever method you choose, make sure you shop around for the best interest rates and terms. It may be a good idea to consult with a financial advisor to get the best advice for your situation.

Find the Right Builder/Lot

The next step is to find the right builder that has a floor plan that you love and can afford. If you have land or have found land, now is the time to have the builder evaluate the property. Now that you have found the perfect spot and everything makes sense the building process can now move forward.

Give Them Enough Time to Work

It’s time to start construction. This is the most exciting part of the process! Be sure to give your builder enough time to do their job. Depending on the size and complexity of your home and the builder you choose it can take anywhere from a few months to a year or more.

Get Furniture and Move In

Once your home is complete, it’s time to move in and start enjoying your new space! You’ll need to get furniture and all the other things you need to make your house a home. But that’s the easy part – you’ve already done the hard work!
