S3, E2: The Perfect Piece of Land to Call Home
Finding the perfect piece of land to call home can be one of the more challenging steps in building a custom home. But having the right home building team in place can simplify the process and, more importantly, help to ensure you buy the right piece of land for your goals. In this episode, we talk to Jan Hibbs of Coldwell Banker Gundaker in St Louis, MO, and JanaLee Jacobson from Berkshire Hathaway in Park City, UT about the land search and how to find the right land to build on.
Jan, JanaLee, and Kim talk about what factors you need to consider when deciding where to look for land, maneuvering the challenges of land scarcity in the current market, and what to consider when designing to get the right resale value.
