However, a builder is often able to help you determine the ideal size lot for your dream home as well as the buildability for a given lot. Let’s look at both situations below:

It is in the neighborhood you desire, the perfect lot, in the perfect school district in Comal County for your children. Another reason you may purchase a lot without a builder is you would like to purchase property and pay it off building equity toward your new home.
