The time has come to start looking for a new place to call home and you’ve decided that Raleigh is the place. With a diverse economy and growing population, many others have a similar thought as you which has made the real estate market very hot as of recent. Families, young professionals, retirees and everyone in between are looking for their next home in the beautiful Raleigh area.
If you have been searching for some time and just haven’t found the right house, why not build it? Nothing feels quite like your home than one that only you have lived in. New builds are extremely popular because of the modern features and designs, along with the customized finishes that are available. For those seeking to be more energy-efficient, there’s no better choice. But before you can build, you need to find the right lot. Finding the right lot may be even more difficult than finding an existing home. However, at Mornington Estates, we have just what you are looking for.
When it comes to finding lots for sale, there are some important things to keep in mind. The first thing, obviously, like with all real estate, is going to be the location. You know you want to be in the Raleigh area but what else do you want around your home? Things to consider are groceries, restaurants, school systems, hospitals, recreational activities, etc. and prioritizing what is important to you can help make a decision easier when you find a lot that fits your criteria. Mornington Estates is ideally located just outside of Raleigh and is conveniently located to every amenity that you could desire.
Next, when looking at undeveloped residential lots within a neighborhood, location is also key. Being too close to the entrance can be noisy if the street is busy and the same goes for a corner lot. Some people don’t want to be all the way to the back of the subdivision either. There are many things to consider but like with all real estate decisions, concessions must be made unless money is unlimited.
Now, one of the most important aspects of choosing a lot is going to be how the home you want to build fits on the lot. Is the lot more or less square? Is it long and narrow or is it more like a wedge shape? The layout will ultimately determine how the house will be positioned. Key things to consider will be the orientation of the driveway, which way the front of the house will be facing, how the yard will look after the house is built. Also, keep in mind the direction of sun exposure.
As you can see, there are many things to consider when trying to decide on the right lot for your soon-to-be home. At Mornington Estates, exceeding expectations is what we strive for. Come check out the perfect setting that is matched with expert craftsmanship to bring you one of the most desirable new-build residential developments in the Raleigh area.
