So, how do homebuyers find land on which to build their custom homesaround Asheville, NC? We spoke with Betty, one of our Land Specialists, for a few tips on finding the perfect lot for your custom built Brown Haven Home.
First thing’s first, it’s important to be financially prepared to purchase land before you begin the search. Betty emphasizes the importance of conducting research to find the best loan options available: “I advise clients to speak with a few lenders for pre-approval and also compare the loan types available for their needs.” While establishing a budget is a key factor in the search for land, our Land Specialists put a high priority on how you choose to save. “Find out your interest rates and loan cost so you can choose how to save your money best. Whether it’s a bank, credit union, or mortgage institution, find out which will give the most bang for your buck.”
At each of our Design Studios, we have a trusted selection of preferred lenders that we recommend for land and home financing options. Brown Haven’s preferred lenders provide the best options available to build your custom built home in the Asheville area. Our team of Land Specialist at the Asheville Design Studio will direct you to our friends at Home Trust Bank and Envoy Mortgagesfor an ideal home financing solution.
Brown Haven’s Land Specialists will work with you to find land that suits your lifestyle needs and interest. “Deciding on the area is the huge topic I discuss with our On Your Lot clients,” says Betty. From a mountain oasis in Cherokee County to a thriving music and arts scene around the Buncombe County metropolitan area, home buyers seeking land should keep in mind what their day to day life entails. “I speak with clients about specifics on their lifestyle so I can choose lots that will accommodate them well...such as being close to water sports, golf, community amenities, shopping & dining, hospital’s, and schools.”
Lastly, but certainly not least, land buyers should be ready for any out of pocket cost to be paid upfront! “Clients need to be prepared to pay out of pocket cost for down payments, closing cost, and appraisals if needed,” explains Betty. Buyers should be ready to put at least 10 to 20 percent down when they’re purchasing land in North Carolina.
