Self-build is growing in popularity every year, with well over 10,000 people taking the plunge. What this means that there are obviously plots out there for sale. The difference however is that land is not as obvious to find as a second hand home. So, if you are planning on bringing in luxury house builders to build your home, read our tips on finding the best plot of land for the job.
Finding the right plot of land can take a long time. In this sense it is not that dissimilar to finding a second hand home that ticks all the boxes. It can take years to find the perfect plot of land for your luxury house builders. So, in order to make sure that you don’t spend years or that you don’t give up, you must be prepared to be flexible, and to revise your goals. Being flexible will give you a better chance of success, and it won’t mean changing the design of your new luxury bespoke home.
Luxury House Builders : Finding Your Plot
There are different routes that you can follow when searching for your perfect plot. A common mistake is searching over an area that is too wide. You should narrow your search down to a manageable geographic area. Once you have found a small area, drive or walk around it in search of potential plots. Walking round towns you will discover infill sites, garages blocks, and disused land that could all have potential. Before you set your heart on one small area however, do some homework. The local council should provide you with a register of recent planning applications. Here you may find some applicants that are actually selling land.
Of course, the Internet is a great way to search for plots. As well as looking at websites for estate agents, you will find websites that are specifically for building plots. You can register your interest with estate agents, both online and in person. You can also get in touch with local surveyors or architects; these people are often the first to find out about available plots of land.
Auctions are still a popular way to find plots of land. You will find plots for singles houses this way that are often auctioned as demolitions and rebuilds. Visiting auction rooms also provides you with an excellent personal approach where you can get to know locals and express your interest. Signing up for the right to build register is another superb way to get in touch with people buying and selling land in the local area.
