Five Easy Steps to Buying a Lot or Land in the Raleigh Area

Step 2: Amenities and Features

Buying a lot or land for your new custom home can involve some big decisions!  By following these five steps, you'll find the right location, something that fits your lifestyle and your budget, with the beautiful surrounds so common in the Raleigh area.

Amenities and Features - What's Important?

Amenities and features can include many different details.  As you consider choices of locations, you'll want to think about what's most important to you.  Is budget your biggest consideration?  Or is a particular lifestyle your primary goal?  All lots and land under consideration will be some combination of location, size, amenities, cost, and buildability.  As you begin to narrow down your options, you may decide that some factors are more important than others.

There are many different golf course communities in the Raleigh area where you have the option to build your new custom home, using the builder of your choice.  For golf lovers, the convenience is terrific.  Just walk or drive the golf cart right to the course at tee time! 

Cost of lots in golf course communities varies.  Most lots on the golf course are well above $100K.  There are occassionally lots within the community available for less than $75K, depending on the community, location, and other factors.  Contact us for more information on available lots in golf course communities.

One great thing about the Raleigh area - no matter where you live, there's probably at least one golf course within 5 miles!

Swimming Pool Communities

A good number of communities offer community swimming pools.  Some require additional fees for the use of the swimming pool, beyond HOA fees.  Usually, the more features the community has, the higher the cost of the individual homesites - and sometimes, the smaller the homesites are.  After all, the cost of the swimming pool, clubhouse, and other features must be somehow recouped, usually by dividing the cost by the total number of lots, and adding that portion to the other costs that determine what each lot will be valued at. 

A small community is much less likely to have a swimming pool or other expensive amenities - but there are other benefits to a small neighborhood too!  Contact us for information about available communities with swimming pools. 

Clubhouse and Tennis Court Communities

Most often, clubhouses and tennis courts can be found in golf course communities.  Clubhouses are useful for community events and social activities. 

Again, balance the features within the community with nearby YMCA facilities, health clubs, state and local parks, and community centers.  The HOA or other fees and higher lot costs may very well be counterbalanced with a membership fee to a great outside facility.  The Triangle area offers terrific events, activities, classes, and sports memberships through a variety of community centers.

If you'd like to keep horses on your own lot or land, keep in mind that you'll need at least one acre of grazing land per horse

Generally, you'll need at least a lot that is at least 2 acres to accomodate your home, driveway, etc and also provide enough grazing area.

There are equestrian communities throughout the area in a variety of price ranges.  There are also many horse boarding ranches in the Raleigh area, particularly on the outskirts of Holly Springs, Hillsborough, and other outlying areas, where your horses can be very close to your new custom home. 

Playgrounds and Walking Trails

If you have children or enjoy walking, you'll probably want to think about features like picnic areas, playgrounds, and walking trails.  Many different types of communities have these features, or are very near some of Raleigh's excellent parks.
