Lot Assessments and Expertise

Some lots are easier and less costly to build on than others. Like used cars, some are real lemons! Many come with hidden costs or limitations including, but not limited to:

  • Soil corrections, soil remediation, adding or removing soil
  • Utility connections that are either missing or are not up to code, utility pole relocation, burying utilities
  • Watershed zoning issues, set back and zoning limitations
  • Pending assessments
