Picking the Right Location for Your Custom Home 

minute(s) remaining

Are you currently thinking about having your dream custom home built? The location is one of the most important aspects you have to consider. Picking the right location for your home could greatly affect your quality of life and make all the difference. With that being said, this decision could end up being overwhelming and stressful without planning. There are many factors to keep in mind, like the plot of land itself, the neighborhood, school districts, and more. Read on to learn how to pick the right location for your custom home!

It All Begins with the Land

Land can be the most challenging component in building.  It is also finite and just the right lot that meets your criteria can involve very limited availability.  At J.A. Myers Homes, over the past 50 years we have identified thousands of home sites to present to our customers.  Our expertise includes evaluating, contracting and developing building sites for our customers.  It is very specialized and professional guidance is strongly recommended.  At this moment, we have nearly 10 active communities to choose from.  We also have multiple projects and individual lots in the works in our portfolio.  If J.A. Myers Homes doesn’t have the perfect homesite for you, we’ll diligently search for it.   

Do Your Research Extensively 

The first step in picking the right location is to do your research. You can start by understanding your lifestyle’s requirements and locating areas that align with them. For example, if you prefer a peaceful and serene environment, consider a location far away from the city. Researching the local school districts, crime rates, and access to important amenities like healthcare and shopping centers or grocery stories could also help you narrow down your options. 

Consider Your Budget 

The budget of your custom home plays a big role in shaping the location of your custom home. Make sure to factor in the cost of labor, land, or building materials in the site you are considering. Remember, building a custom home in an expensive area could be daunting. In contrast, moving to more fordable locations can result in significant cost savings without compromising on the design and quality of your custom home. J.A. Myers can provide affordable custom homes for you to move into today!

Check Out the Neighborhood 

The neighborhood where you decide to build the custom home in should be a safe and welcoming area. Consider visiting the possible location at different times of the day to get a feeling for your neighborhood. If you are moving to a new space, take advantage of the resources online to read reviews and learn more about the area. You can also attend local community events or public meetings or talk to local residents to get a better feeling of the community. J.A. Myers has various move-in ready home communities in Southern Pennsylvania!
