Considerations before purchasing property
When looking at land to buy, you want to ensure the land itself and the area surrounding it meets your needs and fits your lifestyle. It’s a good idea to visit the property at different times of the day and in various weather conditions.
You probably have a vision of the home you want to build on your land. Be sure you thoroughly research restrictions and site limitations so you know ahead of time if you’ll be able to build your home exactly the way you want.
To ensure there’s no mistaking you’ll have a clear title to the property, request the warranty deed and title insurance.
Know the easements and accesses of the property by getting a staked survey of it.
Get in touch with all the utility services providers to confirm availability and costs. Also check to see if the property is in a flood zone and requires flood insurance and what those costs will be as well.
