I have been told that there is a rule of thumb regarding the ratio of the cost of land to the cost of the home built on that land. The problem is that opinions vary greatly on what that ratio is. The most frequently heard is 3:1, that is, the house should be at least 3 times the cost of the land so that a $50,000 lot damands a $150,000 home. Does anyone have any other guidelines that might help me with this delema.
