FAQs General

If I am not in the land business can I purchase from you anyway?

Absolutely! Although we primarily sell to established real estate investors, we have found that some of our best customers are new to this business. Please feel free to email or call us to talk about your interest in rural land.

If I am not in the United States may I still buy land from you?

Yes, American land can be bought by anyone who is not subject to American trade restrictions like citizens of North Korea, Myanmar, Cuba and a handful of other countries.

Why should I buy from you instead of others on Craigslist or eBay?

TRUST, experience, price, quality, and ease. In fact, many sellers on other forums are re-sellers of our properties. Why not buy directly from the source?

FAQs About Our Properties

How much are property taxes?

The property taxes are typically current unless otherwise stated and will vary from parcel to parcel. Please see the tax information section in each individual listing.

Are there back taxes or liens associated with the property?

Unless otherwise stated, all of our properties are free, clear and current at the time of conveyance.

Can I go tour the property before I buy it?

Yes, please do. Some land you can drive right up to and others need some tenacity and ingenuity. With GPS coordinates and a modern phone or some research on the internet ahead of time you should be able to go look and see the land for yourself. You don’t need to ask me, just go. Lots of buyers call me from the land and buy it during their tour.

What can you tell me about the property?

We purchase real property for the sole purpose of re-selling it.  Everything we know about each parcel is stated in the listing.

Why is the property so cheap?

We purchase properties at very large volume at discounted rates so we can sell to you at wholesale prices.

Does the property have utilities?

Unless indicated in the description, the rural properties we represent do not have utilities. They’re perfect for a solar or wind-powered “green getaway.”

Are mineral rights included?

Mineral rights are not included. However, the areas have been geologically investigated and nothing of value has been found. We have never found this to be an issue with any of the properties we have sold.

Can I raise crops or animals on the property?

Most likely, yes.  Please check with the county regarding permitted property use. You can usually do almost anything you would like, including installing a manufactured home or trailer.

FAQs About the Process

Do I need an attorney or real estate agent?

We’ve simplified the buying process with straightforward, easy-to-read contracts. Of course, we encourage you to hire a professional if you think it’s necessary but we’ve done our best to make the process easy for anyone to understand.

Why should I buy from you instead of a real estate agent?

Real estate agent’s fees can range from 2% to 10% of the purchase price.  We eliminate the middleman, saving you even more.

How do I plan a site visit?

Each property is unique. Some require 4 wheel drive and GPS to locate while others have “drive right up” access. Please contact us if you need any assistance with maps, coordinates, etc.

Do you offer title insurance?

Sure, if you pay for it. To me their numbers make me feel like I am being robbed. In CA they pay out something like $0.03 for every $1.00 they charge. That is a 97% profit margin. There are super high barriers to getting into the title insurance business. I think they must pay the real estate agents and everyone else in real estate huge kickbacks to keep that sales pitch going. Most deeds are digitized now so most anybody can go research the chain of title. It is not like they are going to the recorders office and digging through files to price their insurance. When you buy land with out a mortgage you don’t have to be taken to the cleaners by the title insurance companies. Read the article by Forbes here.

Will you take payments?

Sometimes, yes. Please contact us with your special circumstances.

Is title insurance available?

This varies from property to property. Check the listing for this information.

How do I apply for owner financing?

This is not like a car loan or a mortgage. There are no credit checks, no credit reporting, and everyone qualifies. If something changes in your life while you are making payments, we will do our best to work with you.  We feel the same way about banks that you do.  Sometime, they don’t get it. We are not a bank.  We are a few people in an office making a living just like you.
