The ideal land to build a house: everything you need to know
Before suggesting how to choose your terrain , there are some important clarifications to make. First of all, it is important to know that the lands are not all the same, but are divided into two main types: agricultural and building . For the purpose of building a housing structure, the characteristic that distinguishes these lands is a factor called the building index.
Agricultural landAgricultural land
Contrary to what is commonly thought, building on an agricultural land (zone E) is not only possible but often also very convenient since its purchase price is far lower than that of a building plot . The reason for this convenience is all written in the building index of the land itself, which can vary according to the Region and the Municipality in which it is located.
This index generally stands at around 0.3 cubic meters per square meter of total land area. In practice, on a plot of 10,000 square meters you can build a house of 300 cubic meters (about 100 square meters). However, there are some precautions to follow when purchasing agricultural land, first of all to verify the presence of environmental constraints that could compromise the construction of your home.
Another element to pay attention to is the presence of ruins on the ground . Consider well the possibility of investing on a land with these characteristics because it is not always convenient, due to the small size of the ruin and the discontinuities between the existing construction and that of the new construction. In fact, even the simple realization of a foundation slab can be very expensive if in adherence to an already existing construction.
