On our last house we made a lot of quick decisions based on cost that we ended up regretting and not completely getting the quality of house we wanted. Was VERY happy to get The Owner-Builder Book this weekend that stresses the planning process and has so many good ideas to do the planning part of this right.

     In general, costs are rising. They must be, because Elaine‚Äôs parents paid $600 for the home she was raised in, which is worth more than $200,000 today. Therefore, if you can anticipate and buy what you need early, you can save in the long run.

     This applied very markedly to land that Elaine and I bought to build the Riverbottoms house. The land was going begging when we bought it at $27,000. But our local market began to saturate with housing, and open land took a jump in price. Two years later it was worth $55,000. Six years later, it had passed $100,000 in value. After ten years, it was over $350,000.

     This does not obviate the need to buy smart. Occasionally we see items like tools and construction supplies at a discounted price which are heavily undercut a year or two later. Know your purchase, shop around and buy smart.
