Tips on buying land

  • Decide on your location
    Knowing where you want to build your home is the first step to buying land. Do you want your home to be on a steep slope surrounded by trees? Or do you want your home to be in a secluded location? You can also choose land that is in close proximity to major highways, establishments, and nearby cities.
  • Check the area’s zoning laws
    Each area has its own zoning laws. Check with your real estate agent about what applies in the area you’re interested in. Some of these laws may include requirements on building homes or structures on vacant land.
  • Determine how much acreage you need
    Knowing how much land you need for your dream home can make your land-buying process easier. Many vacant lots for sale in Southern Sierra Nevada come in a wide variety of lot sizes, so it’s easy to determine the size of the property you need for your purposes.
  • Know what utilities you need
