Building Trends

An important consideration when looking for land for sale is building trends.  Naturally, this is not as important if you are planning to hold on to the parcel for an extended period of time before developing it. However, if you are planning to build on your property shortly after you purchase it, doing your due diligence regarding building trends before you buy the land will certainly help you make the right purchase and helping you to make the most profit on your investment.

Throughout the country rezoning is having a big effect on the location of many of the parcels of land for sale. The value of land increases in areas that are being rezoned and upgraded. Some of the parcels were once part of the farmlands that were situated on the outskirts of big cities and small towns. The land is subdivided into small building plots and many of the new homes being constructed are built in accordance with the popular green building trends. Green houses are built with a focus on renewable resources, sustainable construction, air quality and energy efficiency.

Another step in green building trends is passive homes which generally depend on the local conditions of their location. Passive houses, filled with a layer of insulation and air, are draft free. They are designed with solar panels and solar water panels and usually do not need any heating system.  These types of houses depend on the local climate, the path of the sun and the wind as their source of fuel.  If you are thinking of building a passive house, your first step is locating the perfect parcel of land for sale.

Areas within cities and towns are also being upgraded and revitalized as old run down residences are being repaired or replaced.  The current building trends in these areas range from affordable green single family houses to luxury high rise apartment complexes.

In addition to green housing, several additional building trends to keep in mind when you are thinking of developing your land are life-cycle analysis regarding new home construction, new outcome based energy codes and the use of grey water in residences.

The mark of a really great company is how they handle problems with their customers. I had a problem with property that I purchased recently, unforeseeable for both myself and Lands Sales, and asked if I could switch to another property. The entire process took less than 20 minutes and I was very happy with how it was handled; finally a company in America that cares for its customers.
