Determine why you are purchasing property.    Is this an investment to be sold, for a profit in the future?  Is this property that will be used for crops or livestock?  Is this an investment to enrich your family time enjoying the great outdoors.  Consider the following:

LOCATION – when you get ready to resell your property location will be an issue with potential buyers. Is there good access from roadway?  Are there grocery stores and gas stations within driving distance.  If you plan on moving fulltime to your new property it is important to research school districts, hospitals, and other available services.

ZONING/EASEMENTS – check zoning ordinances to determine if they have any restrictions on what you can do to improve your land.  Research if the government has any future plans to build something that might have an impact on your lands value, such as highways/roads nearby.

ROAD ACCESS – you need to make sure that the land you invest in has a way to get on it.  If you can only access your property by crossing someone else’s you will need to get legal permission to cross.

LANDSCAPE – the topography needs to be considered when purchasing land.  The type of soil, grasses, the number of trees, elevations and flatlands, surface water are a few of the attributes that determine the current and future value of land.

UTILITIES – do you have access to water, electricity, or sewage systems – if not you should to determine the cost for drilling a well, building a septic system, and also access to electricity.

RESTRICTIONS/COVENANTS – determine if any restrictions have been put in place by local government or by previous owners that might have an effect on what you can do with your property.
