1. Land buying begins with a plan. Have an idea of your short and long term goals for the property and location.
  2. Keep an open mind. Most people have a vision for the finished product of their dream property. And, one of the best feelings as a landowner is the sense of accomplishment that comes with increasing the value of your property after making the right improvements. However, there are great advantages to purchasing a more turnkey property, if your financial situation allows it.
  3. Consult with a lender first to find out what you can afford, if you plan to finance the property. Doing so will help you avoid disappointment and will allow you to focus on properties that are true possibilities.
