Frequently Asked Questions
How does purchasing a property from your site work?
It’s very easy and very different than if you hired a real estate agent. Once you pick the property you want you simply put a down payment per the ad and we will send contract documents depending on if it is cash or owner finance. Once the final payment is made we will grant the warranty deed to you the new owner and record with the county. Once the final payment is made I can usually get the deed completed and recorded within 2-3 days.
What are most people planning to do with their land?
Most property owners feel that it is a good opportunity to own a nice yet affordable piece of real estate. Others plan to make their property into a second home or move to their property after retirement and pass it down to their children or grandchildren. Many also plan to utilize the property as a recreational retreat or getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
What about Utilities?
Usually, there is electric service in the area, however not established to the specific property. If the local water utility company does not have service running to the site you can usually build a water well which is easier to do in Florida since the ground water level is usually high enough to use. Waste water disposal is usually achieved by individual septic systems especially when the vacant land is further away from the big city. Contact the County and/or individual providers for further information and proposed costs.
What about Water?
Every area is different, but usually you are entitled to drill a domestic well on your property at your own cost. Water is not guaranteed to be available at any specific depths, quantity, or quality. Contact the County and/or a Licensed well driller for further information and proposed costs.
Is land a safer investment than the stock market?
Some of the wealthiest people on earth got their start in real estate, and for good reason. Simply put, they’re not making any more land. There is a finite supply, and as the world’s population grows, rural, undeveloped land will likely become even more valuable.
Can I build on the property right away?
If you are paying cash once the property is paid off you can do whatever you want to the property. If you are purchasing with owner financing terms you can use the land any way you want but you can’t build on the property until the deed is in your name.
Are Mobile Homes allowed on my properties?
Mobil homes are obsolete due to HUD policy changes since 1976. They have since been replaced by modern manufactured homes. The older mobile homes are still allowed in certain areas but most counties require a manufactured home instead of a mobile home most of the time. Check your local Planning & Zoning Department for confirmation. So when people say or refer to mobile home, a lot of the time they mean manufactured home unless they have a used old one they want to use.
