Making The Impossible Possible Is All In The Details


When an empty lot is covered in brush and trees and you know there’s a steep drop off somewhere within the mess, it’s easy to dismiss it as a viable option for building a new home to sell or lease.

But this is where it’s beneficial to have a partnership with a builder team who can spot a diamond in the rough ;). This lot was at the end of a cul de sac in an established neighborhood making it an extremely desirable location in the Gaston County, North Carolina community. Slate Building Group had the perfect solution for turning what seemed to be an unusable lot into an irresistible new home with a beautiful wooded backdrop.

Slate Building Group’s Columbus Design has a wide and shallow footprint which made it the right choice for this unique lot overlooking a river. The Columbus Design has a desirable floor plan because the master suite is situated separately from the other two bedrooms. 

From their previous experience of buying and rehabbing properties, the Slate Building Group team knows what works and what doesn’t when it comes to fending off buyer objections and satisfying a price point.  That’s when the finer details came into play for this new build investment property, which included:

  • Incorporating a crawl space that worked with a sloped lot
  • A back deck to view the beautiful wooded backyard and river to increase buyer appeal
  • A curb at the end of the driveway to ease the mind of potential buyers

If you want a solid profit from your investment, then you’ll want a builder team with first hand experience resolving problems an investor would have when selling or renting a place.
