Looking into buying land can be a scary and overwhelming experience. It feels as if you need enormous amounts of money to even think of purchasing a few acres to get your American Dream started. After that, concerning topics come up of which requirements are needed to purchase land, setting up an escrow, managing your utilities and if the area you’ve chosen will be right for you and your family. Because of these myths, a lot of potential land purchasers end up abandoning their dreams.
At Santa Cruz Properties, we fully understand how going about looking for land to buy can be uncomfortable. It actually doesn’t take a millionaire to own land. We can help make all of your landowning dreams come true while answering any questions that might be stopping you from taking that first step. The process of buying land is a lot easier than you think and we’ll explain why.
The process of owning land will require some signatures and paperwork. Although it can be stressful for anyone, at Santa Cruz Properties, we are experienced in making the process easier for you. We encourage any questions that you might have. Typical questions new clients have include which proper documents are required when purchasing land or if they need American citizenship.
While a big myth is that you must be a citizen of the United States, you can actually purchase land even if you aren’t. The proper documents needed to purchase land include:
- Two current forms of ID, which may include a Texas Driver’s License/Identification
- A passport
- Your social security number or birth certificate from country of origin
- A full down payment along with any other applicable fees
No, you don’t need stacks and stacks of money in the bank. The truth is you just have to be able to budget your finances responsibly. At Santa Cruz Properties, we work with you on what your budget should be to make your dreams come true. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to buy land, that’s why we work hard on your behalf.

Our real estate professionals will work hard to make your dream of buying land come true. Using our owner financing, you can even save on closing costs with shorter waiting periods.
