Nevada can be a dream for new businesses. Not only is Nevada a right-to-work state, but Nevada doesn’t have a state corporate income tax. Las Vegas is particularly ideal for any type of business as it is set to grow in population and is one of the richest cities in the state.
That’s why if you plan on starting your business in Las Vegas, our general contracting firm can assist in creating any business front you envision.
However, before our contracting firm in Las Vegas starts laying the foundation, follow these three important tips before buying a site.
3 Questions to Ask before Buying a Las Vegas Site
What is the site’s zoning?
Make sure you know what you can and cannot do with the site before you buy it. This can be easily solved by contacting the local planning and zoning departments.
When you find out what the land’s zoning is, you can decide if the land suits your needs. If you plan on buying the site, architects and general contracting firms you plan to hire will require this information. The zoning will be their guideline of what they can and cannot do.
Additionally, make sure to enlist a surveyor’s services. They will create a boundary survey the design firm and general contractor will use as another guideline.
What is in the surrounding area?
This is the most important question to ask yourself. It is crucial to research the land your future construction project will be built on, or you can incur potential construction costs.
Here is a small list of information you will want to know about the site:
- What are the site’s soil integrity and contaminants?
- Is the site near the sewer and water lines?
- Is the site near power and gas?
- What’s road access like?
After completing that step, make sure to step back and get the full picture. Is the surrounding area aesthetically pleasing? Will my business succeed on the edge of town or in the thick of the city? Can I add onto my business? What do the other surrounding businesses look like? What appears to be the demographic of the area, and so on.
Is your site in or near a flood zone?
Flash floods happen in Las Vegas. They occur at a moment’s notice and can be a potential property damage hazard. For a new business, a little rain can be a serious problem.
They way to know if you are in a flood zone is by checking the site’s plats.This information can be found by the local planning and zoning department. If not, the surveyor you hired can find this information for you.
If the land is in a potential flood area, make sure to communicate this to your Las Vegas general contractor. Your construction firm can provide designs to anticipate and avoid property damage.
