There are several builders who live here locally. My husband and I are currently working with a builder out of Montgomery. A well in this area will run about $150 - $250 a foot. Septic in Madison county will allow a conventional system with 10 acres or more provided it will pass a PERK test. Conventional systems are about $5,000. Aerobic systems will cost about $8,000 - $10,000. Let me know how I can further assist with your search.
In addition to the earlier advice, I would also recommend that you get a buyer's agent to help you in your home search. An REO agent can handle a large inventory of properties at any one time. This is the seller's agent and the interest is in getting the property sold. You need an agent focused on helping you find your home, answering your questions and making sure you understand the process. Even if you have bought a home in the past, a buyer's agent is familiar with the trends and issues in this market.
Good luck with your search.
