  • poll: Would you save up to build or buy a lot and build on it later

    Save up and just build your dream home

    Buy the lot first and live on it in a trailer, you can always build later

    Buy the lot and continue to rent until you can build a house

    We actually bought a builder’s inventory home. You tend to get a lot of upgrades that way without spending the money on them and you can negotiate to have things changed/added when you’re negotiating the price. We spent a lot of time searching but we finally found our dream house and negotiated for little things like different light fixtures, blinds, appliances, paint colors, things like that. Our friends also bought an inventory home and went through the same things we did. It’s a great compromise because the nice part is you don’t have to wait months and months for the home to be finished, but you can still get what you want for a fraction of the price.
