What is a site appraisal?

A site appraisal is the evaluation of a site or section from a building perspective. Urban Homes offers free, no-obligation site appraisals and initial design discussions to help you make smart building decisions. 

Whether you are looking at buying a section, subdividing a property, or building on a site you already own, a site appraisal is an important first step in the building process.

Contact us today to arrange your free, no-obligation site appraisal and initial design discussion with one of our experienced New Home Consultants. 

What does a site appraisal contain?

We will visit you on site and help you assess: 

  • What access is like to the site - is it easy for abuilding team to access? Sites with limited access can have hidden building costs
  • If the section has any slope or contour issues - this is incredibly important to review right from the start
  • If the site has any obstacles that need to be removed or allowed for - e.g. trees, existing dwellings, and more
  • If there are services connected to the site, or if these need to be installed
  • How the site is orientated to the sun, and how you could best position a house on the site
  • If any excavations or ground-works are required - these will need to be factored into your budget
  • Any resource consents that might be required
  • How you could bring your design ideas and dreams to life

When is the right time to get a site appraisal?

Whether you’re hunting for the perfect section, subdividing an existing property, or planning to build on a section you already own, a site appraisal and initial design discussion is an important step in the building process.

  • Before buying land

If you are looking to buy land, you need a site appraisal BEFORE making an offer, to avoid making any decisions that could cost you down the track.

  • Building on a section you already own

We recommend seeking a site appraisal before you start looking at house plans. Our consultants can help you explore possibilities and identify any challenges unique to your site.

  • Subdividing an existing property

A site appraisal can guide you on making the most of your section and building your dream home within your budget.
