Before you start building on one of our available Santa Cruz Properties, there are a few things to keep in mind. It’s always best to know all of the facts and know for sure if buying rural land is for you. In this piece, we’ll go over a few tips you should consider when buying land.
Why Are You Buying Land?
Before you rush to sign papers, consider this: Why are you buying this particular property? Are you going to build a home or is it ranch land? Make sure the vacant lot you are purchasing fits your needs. Our friendly consultants can help you through this process.
Find Out Who Your Neighbors Are
Always make sure you’re buying land in a community you can see yourself living in. If you want to build a house, consider if there are other houses around. If you’re surrounded by strange smells, perhaps your property is more suitable for a farm. Future neighbors are also another factor to keep in mind. Don’t forget to consider if you’ll even want neighbors. If not, you may want something a little more remote.
Know Your Boundaries
Always check to see if boundaries are clearly and accurately marked. This lowers the possibility of a disagreement with a neighbor, or worse, the city. If you require a survey of the land, Santa Cruz Properties will gladly grant you one.
What is the Topography of the Property?
Does the property you’re interested in have uneven ground unsuitable for building? Sometimes, prospective landowners have a specific spot in mind to place their house when it comes to residential property, but always consider if the land will allow it. If you have any concerns about a piece of land you’re interested in, we can arrange a tour to explore if that spot is right for you.
Where Are You?
As silly as it sounds, always take into account where your desired property lies. Is it close to work? If not, would you mind the commute? Don’t forget school districts for the little ones. Job-related transfers may be a future issue. Wherever you decide to buy, make sure you have no regrets.
