In some counties, it can even be cheaper to build a house than to buy a finished one. Not to mention, a used house has many issues that you will need to fix once it is your own, on top of the remodeling to make it suit your tastes. This can all add up to a much higher price than the cost of building a house from the ground up. There are many affordable house and land packages out there. You can choose the community you want to live in, the type of view you want to have, and the size and design of your home.
