Under All is the Land - Part 1
For communities to be successful, number one is location. Number two is product mix and number three is the amenities. Today, I will deal with the importance of location. There are several factors to consider in choosing a location.
The school district is vital. To be successful, it must be a school district that will satisfy parents as to quality. School districts are rated numerically and parents pay close attention to the rating.
The community must also be close to shopping, medical and banking. In short, attention must be paid to conveniences nearby before the characteristics of the land even come into play. Great tree cover, gentle contours and water will not matter if there is not close proximity to good schools and services.
With all of the above in place or soon to be with assurances, the developer can proceed. While under contract to close the land, he/she will then line up builders to produce the product mix. Engineering and surveying are already well underway.
I will continue to describe this process in my next Blog.
