The purpose of this paper is to provide young men and women entering the work force with the ability to invest towards acquiring a large plot of land to live on. In the current housing condition, Americans, more exactly those living in large urban populations are finding it difficult to find a permanent home in the same city as their workplace. This is particularly true for those whose professions require frequent relocation. The research conducted is meant to provide a person with little to no knowledge of construction with the conceptual understanding of the correct channels to purchase land and then develop on it. Less than 3% of Americans are involved in the Construction industry, therefore there are a lot of people who could utilize this information. This research is meant to provide initial understanding and it is the requirement of the reader to conduct in depth research into each of these topics and see how they apply to individual circumstances. The paper begins by looking at how one gains capitol to invest, then it discusses various preconstruction considerations, next it discusses post construction considerations, and finally it discusses new information and a conclusion.
