Building a home now a days cost substantially more. Between purchasing the land, and if it needs a septic and well, the foundation, and then building the house costs a fortune. Finding the right home is hard. Having a good buyers agent is key. They know the market better than anyone else.

Good luck in your choices.

If you do decide to try to list and sell, I recommend sticking with a local Realtor who has access to the Berkshire County MLS, since you are located in north Berkshire.
