Site selection and location has always been a key strategy for Ratliff. Prior to every acquisition, our team extensively researches key components relating to boundaries, easements, engineering, title research, and constructability. We provide our potential builders with conceptual site plans that fit their product needs. Whether we are re-zoning the property, creating a planned development, or just platting lots for development, we ensure our homebuilders full approved entitlements prior to land acquisition.
Proceeding land acquisition, we provide full oversight of all engineering and landscape architectural design. Our expertise enables our team seamless oversight during the design process. Forward thinking and strategic value engineering alternatives are discussed with our consultants. These strategies allow for a more efficient and timely design to meet our deadlines. We provide weekly updates on design strategies and progress tracking throughout the entire process.
