2020 was one crazy year for real estate on Cape Cod, with a frenzy of activity from April until December due to the pandemic. Now that the dust has settled a bit, existing for sale home inventory is at an historic low, and we now have many clients looking for raw land to build on here on the Cape. For many, purchasing vacant land can be a daunting experience, especially when you consider the multiple regulatory layers involved in even the most simple building project.
There are always several questions people ask us when they are considering a land purchase here are some of the most common:
- Is the property "buildable"?
- Do I need to get a perc test?
- How long does it take to get a building permit?
- Do I need to get a building permit before I buy the property?
- How long does it take to build a new home?
- How much does it cost to build a new home?
