New Hampshire Modular Homes provides you with the opportunity to build instant equity and save money by doing much of the work yourself or hiring professionals required to finish your new home. Being the project manager, also known as the general contractor, means that you are in charge of your own project (and that's a good thing!). If you want to save serious money and don't mind organizing subcontractors, planning schedules and making phone calls to follow up, then this is a job for you.

You may prefer to hire a professional project manager to oversee on-site completion of your new home. We can refer you to experienced project managers.

Below is a list of activities needed to complete your new home. The checkmarks (check_mark) indicate who is responsible for each activity.

Find Land

 

1. Search the Northern New England Real Estate Network (NNEREN) site. This site enables you to search every listing in the state.

 

2. Sign-up with area newspapers to be notified by email when land listings meeting your requirements run in the paper.

 

3. Drive around the area where you'd like to build. Look for "For Sale By Owner" signs (this method really works!).

 

4. Visit the town hall in the town where you'd like to live. Ask to see the tax maps. Look for vacant lots and note owner's name and address. Contact owner to see if they would be interested in selling. This method takes some time but can uncover land no one else knows about.

 

5. Contact a Realtor who specializes in land.
