Considerations for Buying Land to Build a House

Some prefer the choice to build their own home rather than the alternative choice of renovating an old house or buying a new developer-built house. If you opt for more creative freedom and less restrictions, buying land to build your house from the ground up will require you to consider certain factors before you buy. Here are some tips from CBRE’s Investment and Land team that can help you make an informed decision.

Preparations for Buying Land to Build Your Own House

Between 2003 to Q1 2020, CBRE Research has found that, on an annual basis, an average of over 18,000 self-built houses have been constructed in Bangkok while only over 13,000 detached houses have been built by developers.

Keep in mind that one of the major differences between buying a house and buying land to build a home is the loan structure. Therefore, to avoid risks of overspending, it is important to set a budget for:

  • Buying Land
  • Land Registration Fee
  • Construction Cost and Interior Fit-out
  • Professional Fees
  • Contingency Expenses

Choosing land for the foundation of your dream house is also crucial. The key elements you must inspect are:

  • Location
  • Price
  • Neighbourhood
  • Land Shape
  • Building Regulations

Whether you have decided to examine and execute these steps on your own, with your significant other or with your family, the guidance of a land professional is considerably vital along way.

When searching for land to purchase, it is highly recommended to consult a land professional to handle the land-use check, location comparison, price negotiation and land transactions. A qualified consultant will help you reach your goal without wasting your time and resources.
