What to consider when purchasing vacant property. I think the top 3 that I would suggest once you arrive at a price or whatever, you need to verify the zoning and land use and make sure that you’re able to use the property for its intended use. And so it had, and that might have to do with size of the property, the access things such as that next, it would be the availability of utilities. So if you’re getting one, a belt, a residential property, a belt, a house on a vacant lot, well, are there water and sewer available, or can you go with a well and septic tank, but anyway, check on the availability of utilities and those come with impact fees or the costs that you may be building. The third thing that you should consider whenever you’re buying vacant property as, did have a wetlands, determination, as far as that, or an environmental audit the property.
If the property is low, you wouldn’t be able to use whatever is below a jurisdictional line. So you may be buying three, four and a half acres, but maybe only a half of it, half an acre is buildable, or if it’s high and dry. Well, there may be some other problems as far as gopher turtles or other environmental endangered species and things such as that. So, you would need to consider the environmental aspects. So those were my top 3 items on my list that you need to consider when you’re buying a vacant property.
