Not everyone is content with whats on the market. If you’ve lived in the countryside your entire life and are moving into an urban area, chances are you’re not used to terraced housing and suburban communities.
If you’ve got the capital and determination, you don’t have to settle for change. Why not look for an ideal plot of land to build on and get knee deep in some residential construction?
Before finalising the site, consider the land itself (i.e greenfield, brownfield, reclaimed) as areas of land unfit for building can cause your home to sink into the ground and become susceptible to flooding. You should also consider transport opportunities (i.e nearby train station, easy access to dual carriage way), available local facilities (i.e. leisure centre, post office) and the variety of high-street shops (i.e. fishmongers, butchers).
