Tips for Purchasing House Lots for Sale

Purchasing house lots for sale is an important and complex decision, just like any real estate purchase. For starters, there are plenty of reasons to buy a cheap land for sale. If you buy a house, it's probably so you can live in it; but with land, you could choose to build your own house, use the property as a long-term investment or even to start up a business. Property also introduces a host of issues you don't normally face when buying a house.

Following are some tips for making purchasing house lots for sale a painless process!

Location, Location, Location: The old real estate adage nails our first, most basic concern in land purchasing dead on. Think about it: No matter why you're purchasing a piece of property, nothing is more important than location. If you're buying land investments, don't buy land with no resale value. If you're aiming on starting up a business, don't buy land completely isolated from potential customers. And if you're looking to build a house, don't buy land you can't build on.

Zoning Laws: Zoning laws govern what can and can't be done with lots and land for sale and essentially are the reason you don't have a strip mall in your back yard or a sewage processing plant next to your town library. Zoning is a bit more complex than that, of course; it's the division of land into subdivisions that will have varying restrictions of what can be built on each piece of property. Make sure you'd even be allowed to build a house on a vacant lot before buying a house lot for sale and trying to start construction.

Figuring out the basics of zoning isn't a tough task. For instance, certain areas will clearly be zoned for residential building. You can seek out the zoning office in any U.S. county or look it up online to find useful records for any parcel of land. While you're digging around in those records, make sure to pay attention to the county's long-term land use plans and scheduled road additions. Those will dictate future construction and could spell the difference between a nice quiet front yard and a house uncomfortably close to an interstate 10 years from now.
