Future HomesiteThe first step in buying land and building your dream home is finding the perfect homesite for you and your family. Whether you’re looking for a community near the water or in the hill country, Southstar Communities has a wide range of homesites available. It is smart to know what is most important to you when planning your future.

When you set out to do your first homesite search, bring along a wish list of features that you hope your homesite will include. Consider if you want to have neighbors or if you’re interested in a more secluded spot in the neighborhood. Also take note of the natural elements surrounding your house including trees, streams or ponds and how it is affected by the weather. Analyzing these features will allow you to plan how you will lay out your house and can help you financially later down the road when it comes to insuring your home.

Lastly, be sure to check that the homesite meets the needs of your family. Consider how many rooms your house will need and see if the homesite allows room for the size of the house you want plus exterior features like a backyard and swimming pool. You want to make the most of your homesite, but you also don’t want to feel constricted once the home is complete!
