Southeast Michigan Real Estate: 3 Reasons You Should Consider Vacant Land

Posted in Southeast Michigan Real Estate by Michigan Real Estate Expert on January 3rd, 2011

When you buy a home, you want one that will meet your needs. You may have an at-home business that requires a lot of space or large pets that need room to run. If this is the case, a home located in a close-knit planned community may not be right for you.

Here are three reasons when you’re buying southeast Michigan real estate, building on vacant land might be right for you:

1. You want to build a home designed to meet your needs. Perhaps the greatest benefit of buying southeast Michigan real estate that is vacant land, is the freedom you have to build whatever home you want. You won’t have to use a particular home builder or build a home just like everyone else’s.

2. You want more space. Building a home in a planned community comes with certain restrictions. One of those is usually a smaller lot size. Many homes are now being built on 1/3 acre lots and smaller. You may not be comfortable living in a home that close to your neighbor’s house. Purchasing Southeast Michigan real estate and building on vacant land puts as much space between you and your neighbors as you want.

3. You want to take advantage of current land prices. Even if you aren’t ready to build right now, it still makes sense to purchase vacant land. Land typically goes up in value over time, and as the saying goes, they’re not making any more of it. You can buy your land at today’s rate and then build your home whenever you are ready. The land will be waiting for you.  This could save you thousands of dollars.
