Purchasing a Site? Look before you leap!

Planning, Site, Purchase,

I visited a client’s site recently and was amazed by the volume of traffic on the local roads. My client said that he had not known that morning traffic was so heavy in the area as he had not visited the site at that time of day when he was considering his purchase of the site.
And I thought – What a great tip.
If you are looking at a site for your planned self-build you should visit the area early in the morning, at evening rush-hour and during the night to see what is going on at those times. You may be surprised at what you will find. Heavy traffic, people using local roads as short cuts, and maybe late night parties if there is a local college nearby and students are renting accommodation close to you.
Find out what goes on in the area before you commit to your purchase: A little time invested will pay off in the longer term!
