When should I start building?

Every month, the price of materials and the cost of land increases. Whether you are thinking of building in a few years or a few months, it is important to understand what effect waiting has on the cost of your project. In some areas, these cost factors will be much higher than others. That may influence your decision to start planning and building sooner. You could pay thousands of dollars more for your home two years from now than if you started the planning and building process now.

Take this opportunity to go into your local UBuildIt office, meet with the consultant and talk to them about what you want to do. Go over your budget and let them provide guidance in determining your next steps. This will help you make an informed decision on when to start building.
