Is Building Your Own Home REALLY Worth It? #california #firsttimehomebuyers

Building your own home is not always the way to go, $100,000 for land is not cheaper THAN BUYING A HOME ALREADY BUILT. There are a lot of expenses that we don't see until you starting digging into it.
Building with no permits & no foundation approved from the city could be $50-60k & that is IF the city or county allows you to build.

Adding a manufactured home is going to be $200-300k depending on what you want – so, if you are buying a land for $150k + water/sewer city connections $60k = $210k! Now, you still need the home = $300k = $510k!

I know what you are thinking well, I don't need to build that much – TRUE! But, on the low end you are still looking at $410k – lots of information, but ask more questions before you get yourself stuck spending money on something that will cost you more in the end.
