Like a lot of Americans this year, you may be planning to change your address in 2019. Unlike a lot of Americans, you may not be scouring the real estate listing sites, looking for that new address.

Instead, you’re planning to build your own home.

Building your own home is a lifelong dream for many. You may have everything planned out down to the landscaping. Or you’re just starting down the journey of building your own home, and you’re not sure where to start.

Location, Location, Location

Location matters every bit as much when building a home as when buying one, if not more.

Fortunately Boone Homes has already handled some of the trickier aspects of land selection. Their professional expertise will help you ensure that the land your new home will be built on can handle the types of features you’d like in your new home.

They will research zoning laws and building codes as well—professional insights that will help give you peace of mind as well.

Begin with the End in Mind

The amount of options inherent in building your own home may seem overwhelming. To help you envision a home that truly suits you, think about your lifestyle. Imagine a typical day—do you tend to linger in the kitchen? Do you work from home? Are there any hobbies you do that could benefit from having a dedicated space just for them?

While building can significantly open up your options, not every detail will always be under your control either. Think about what’s most important to you, so if you do have to sacrifice a want for a need, it’s clear which is which.
