Considering Property size
Do you see a riding mower in your future? Perhaps you envision an entertainer’s yard like no other. Whatever your plans, you can find a property that meets and even exceeds your expectations when you buy land in Comal County. The trick to finding the perfect homesite is having some idea of what you’re looking for—and being honest with yourself about what you can handle. You wouldn’t be the first person to fall in love with 50 acres of treed, private gloriousness only to wake up one day and realize the amount of work involved is more than you bargained for.
Your lifestyle will typically dictate the type of setting you want when buying land in the Hill Country. Comal County land for sale represents a wide range of properties, from those that offer a rural setting far away from the crowds (but also amenities), to those in which amenities are a large part of the draw. You can opt for river frontage, something set on a scenic mountaintop, or even a property that feels private and set apart but is just minutes to restaurants, shops, schools, and work centers. The choice is yours!
Type of homesite—and home
Along with considering the size of your homesite and the setting, you also need to think about the type of land you want, and the home you intend to build. Each lot is different; even if you’re looking on the same street of a masterplan, you’ll probably find distinct differences that help one property stand out among the others, whether it’s a majestic oak tree that’s in just the right spot or a sunset view you can imagine framing in your kitchen window.
Looking for a flat lot that’s already cleared? Maybe you prefer some elevation to expand the views. If it’s a rambling one-story home you want to build on the Comal County land for sale, frontage will be another important consideration. Your sales professional in the community in which you are looking will be able to guide you toward homesites that match your needs, explain why some lots are better suited than others, and even point you toward top Hill Country builders if you need a referral.
