Buying land can be an uncertain process for many first-time buyers. It can be a long process that is often favored against the buyer, and there is much to learn before you plant your family’s roots deep into Edinburg’s soil.
Even though the waters may be a little murky at first, there are a lot of resources that can ease you along the process.
Santa Cruz Properties has been in the land development industry since 1993, and throughout the years, we have gathered a ton of information for first-time buyers. We know how important this investment is for you, so we’ll be sharing a few tips on how–and where–to start.

Know Why You’re Buying Land.
Will you be using this land as a primary residence, a place to spend the weekends only, or an investment property to generate long-term profits? Each question has a different answer, and each answer has many variables to consider.
Make a wish list considering everything you want to do with the land you’re interested in and how your budget fits into it. This wish list will make it easier for you to capture–and later see–the big picture of what you want to accomplish, helping you to more accurately deliver your needs to one of our land experts.
P.S. Keep in mind that you don’t have to have perfect credit when buying land, especially if you choose Santa Cruz Properties to help. More on that later.
Before Purchasing Land, Do Your Homework.
Before investing in land, you should research everything surrounding the lot you plan on buying:
- Is the land free of environmental concerns/issues?
- What is the land’s soil quality?
- Is the land uneven/elevated?
- What is the history of the land and its surrounding areas?
- Are there particular permits required for the zone?
Whatever you want to do with your land purchase, you must consider any closing fees, permits, purchasing costs, building expenses, and access to all utilities and services required. Considering all of these aspects of the buying process can give you a clearer vision of what you’re looking to spend when creating your own slice of the American Dream.
Doing your homework before you decide to buy can help you avoid problems and legal issues–not to mention, save a lot of money–when you build your dream home or rental property.
