When homeowners choose to go the custom route for their new-construction home, they know they’re going to get the home of their dreams. From the big picture idea to the smallest details and features, a custom home is tailored exactly to each family’s specific needs and wants. One of the biggest benefits of building custom is the opportunity to find the perfect piece of land to build on—and whether you already own your preferred land or need some assistance in the search, Wilkinson Homes is ready to walk you through the process. 

Evaluating your existing land 

Perhaps you’ve acquired a piece of family land, or you bought it years ago in hopes of one day building a custom home on it. No matter how you came into property, building a home on it can be one of the most fulfilling experiences of your life. But being prepared and knowing what to expect can make the homebuilding process a lot less stressful. 

There are many variables to consider, and Wilkinson Homes’ team of experts will work diligently to ensure no details are overlooked before breaking ground on your land. The process is different each time, but we’ve built on just about every type of lot. 

There are the fun aspects to planning out your land, including choosing where your house will sit and what land features—like bodies of water and forested areas—you’d like to preserve or highlight with your build. Then there’s the slightly mundane aspects, like getting your land connected to utilities (if not in a master-planned community or other residential area), site preparation, zoning and more. But our team is ready to help you get through every early step in the process, so that the excitement of actually designing your home and watching it be built from the ground up can begin. 

Searching for land to buy

Have your custom-home plans been delayed because you couldn’t find the right piece of land for your home? Wilkinson Homes has access to premium lots in communities and subdivisions that may not even be advertised, because we have trusted relationships with realtors, developers, land sellers and investors who give us the inside information on some of the best lots in the area.

You can also find a lot independently, and have our team evaluate the land before you actually purchase it. That way, you can rest assured your vision for a custom home can be achieved on the particular piece of land—saving you from possible headaches later down the road. 

When building with us, we not only offer out portfolio of fully customizable floorplans, we will also team up with architects to create your one-of-a-kind custom home.
