General questions about our company, services, and properties.
I would like to schedule a viewing at one of your listed properties. How do I plan a site visit?
You are more than welcome to head out and take a look at your convenience – there’s no need to schedule a viewing with us.
There are detailed viewing instructions on our website for each listing, and we try our best to make it very easy for you to find our listings. If you have any questions about accessing the lot, you can call us anytime.
We ask that if you’re planning to go see a lot, you give us a call at least a few hours notice before you head out, so we can make sure we have our phone on us in case you have questions while you’re out there or need help finding the lot.
FYI: there is a great app called OnX Hunt, which works like a GPS for property lines, and allows you to walk the property lines of any parcel on an interactive map. It works off your phone’s GPS so doesn’t need cell service to work. They have a 7 day free trial, so you can download and use it for free. Just make sure you cancel your subscription before the trial period ends, or you’ll be charged. We use this app all the time, and recommend it highly.
One last thing: If you’re heading out to a lot in a rural area, please consider downloading or printing your instructions. Sometimes cell phone signal can be spotty, so this will ensure you don’t lose your directions.
I’m ready to buy. What are the next steps?
Congratulations! If you’d like to move forward with a purchase, please call or email to let us know.
We will need to know what name you would like to purchase the property in – whether its an individual, trust, or company, or if multiple people will be listed on the deed.
We will then send you a Purchase Agreement . We can send it by mail, fax, or email – whatever’s easiest for you. If you choose email, we’ll use DocuSign for electronic signatures, so you can sign it online. From there, we will coordinate closing with a local Title Company.
We close ALL of our transactions at licensed and insured title companies to protect both you (the buyer) and us (the seller). You’ll never be asked to send us a check or money order directly.
What does the closing process look like?
Once we receive the signed Purchase Agreement from you, we will send it to a reputable local title company, and will begin the closing process.
We aim to close all of our transactions within 2 weeks, and we will contact you to confirm the closing date once we’ve sent everything to the Title Company.
You do not need to travel to the title company to close. We can have the Title Company email you any documents they need your signature on, and you can take them to a local notary for signing. You can then send them to the Title Company (by certified mail or overnight).
You’ll never be asked to send us money directly – you’ll send the purchase funds to the licensed/insured Title Company, who will hold it the funds in escrow until the transaction is ready to close. Wire transfers are preferable, but if you prefer, a certified check would also be acceptable.
The Title Company will not release these funds to us until they’ve run the title search, sent you the settlement statement, and closing is complete.
Why are there different prices for Cash Sale vs. Owner Financed?
The short answer is: We are a small, family-owned business – not a bank.
While we are happy to work with our buyers and provide financing, when we accept a terms sale rather than a cash sale,
We own all the property that we list on our site ourselves, and our preference is to sell our properties outright to cash buyers whenever possible. It’s easiest for us, and therefore we are willing to provide cash buyers a significant discount.
We have limited cash on hand available to owner-finance our properties. For this reason, if we owner-finance, the price will be close to market-value.
You’re always welcome to research and contact local lenders, as well. There’s no obligation to finance with us.
Your prices/terms are too good to be true. What’s the catch?
We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and discounted rates, and we strongly believe in passing this discount on to our buyers.
It is our hope that by providing excellent service to our buyers along with our unbeatable prices, our clients and buyers will spread the word, refer other buyers to us, and want to do business with us again in the future!
I want to know more about the property.
We include everything that we know about the property in the listings on our website. If the property has an HOA or any CC+Rs, we include these documents in the listing as well.
We also include the contact information for the county, local utility companies and service providers, so that if you have any additional questions, you can make those calls directly.
In our experience, it is more efficient for you to have those conversations directly with the source of this information, so as to ensure you’re asking all of the relevant questions (and follow up questions) that arise while doing your due diligence. We always recommend that our buyers double check any information that is of particular importance to them with the original source of our info.
What kind of land do you sell?
We specialize in rural, vacant land.
Some of our property may have service (i.e. sewer, water, power, etc.) and some of our property may be completely raw (i.e. no utilities). All of our listings include exhaustive info on the status of utilities, access, and buildability.
Does this property have any liens or back taxes?
All of the properties that we sell come with clear title, and are free of any back taxes or liens.
We conduct thorough due diligence on our properties, and all of our transactions are closed by a reputable Title Company, and the titles are insurable by nationally recognized Title Insurance Companies.
What about utilities?
Some of our properties have utilities, and some do not.
Any information we have about the status of utilities on a lot is included in the listing description.
We have a dedicated page on our website that provides resources and info on raw land improvement, which touches on some alternatives to traditional utilities (septic, solar, compost toilets, etc).
Do I need a Real Estate Agent or Real Estate Attorney?
Of course, if you wish to involve your realtor or real estate lawyer and have them review any element of the transaction, you’re more than welcome to do so! We’re happy to work with them and provide any information they request.
However please note that any costs associated with involving these third parties will be your responsibility to pay. Part of the reason we are able to offer our land at discounted prices is that we have eliminated many of the “middlemen” whose services add significant costs to the completion of a deal.
Is Title Insurance available?
Yes! All of our transactions are closed by reputable local Title Companies, and the titles are insurable by nationally recognized Title Insurance Companies.
Why would I buy directly from you instead of working with a Realtor?
Simply put, purchasing directly from us cuts out the middle-man. Realtors charge an average commission of 6% for their services. When you purchase directly from us, you pay only the cost of the property and your share of closing costs.
