What to Consider When Buying a Lot

Before you can get started with the fun stage of building your dream home, you must decide where you want to build it or more importantly, where you want to live. Our team can help you consider the important factors so that your lot fits your needs, wants, and lifestyle. Let’s go over what to consider when purchasing a lot in San Antonio, Boerne, Cordillera Ranch, and beyond. 


Location & Neighborhood 

  • Where do you & your family want to live? 
  • What would the work/school commute look like? 
  • What school districts do you prefer? 
  • Do you want more community or seclusion? 


Lot Features 

  • What’s your ideal home setting? 
  • Do you want lots of trees surrounding & shading your home? 
  • Do you want to be more exposed or tucked away?

  • What’s the lot size? 
  • Will there be plenty of room for everything? (house, yard, garage, guest house, etc.) Lot Cost 
  • What’s your budget for your lot & home?
