Cape Coral Lot buying criteria for Builders.

Find out if city or community water and sewer connections are available on the lot or land. It is easier to build with central water and sewer than with septic and well. If the lot is in a gated development, ask for a copy of the restrictive covenants. Check a property’s use restrictions to ensure the builder can use the site and build the home the way they or their customers would want.
