No other purchase in your lifetime will feel as good as buying your first piece of land. Owning property is a sign of maturity, dedication, and a desire to live to the fullest extent.
Here at Santa Cruz Properties, we believe that everybody deserves a chance at purchasing the land of their dreams. Our team of experts has compiled a list of the top three must-know tips for buying your very first piece of land.
- Decide How You Will Use Your Land
Are you planning on starting a family, raising cattle, or tilling the soil and yielding a bountiful harvest?
Regardless of which direction you choose, be sure that you are well informed of how your potential property can work for you. This includes looking into how large your desired acreage is, how far away you choose to be from major cities, and how your property layout is designed.
Hilly areas may not be the best location for certain crops that you may want to grow, and some local laws may prohibit raising cattle so close to the city. On the other hand, raising a family so far out of town may cost you more in terms of gas mileage if you need to drive the children to school.

- Understand the Benefits of Buying Over Renting
Oftentimes, first time land buyers may become overwhelmed with the transition from renting to buying. This is understandable, but at the end of the day it’s important to realize how many advantages there are in owning your property.
As a renter, you have little control over how you choose to customize the property. For instance, if you decide one day that you’d like to try your hand at gardening, you would first have to run the idea by your landlord. These sort of restrictions also apply the simplest of decisions, such as whether or not you’re allowed to paint your walls.
All in all, the benefits of owning a home far outweigh any conveniences you may encounter as a renter, and our realtors have seen numerous lives transformed through the freedom that comes with buying and owning their own land.
Although buying can be perceived to be a bit more expensive, our owner-financed properties are accessible to all types of budgets, and our realtors’ guidance can alleviate any difficulties you may have while undergoing the exciting transition from renter to buyer.
