What to Do Before Purchasing Land

Speak to the Seller

A really great place to start when purchasing a piece of land is to speak with the seller and ask as many questions as possible. He or she should be able to provide you with at least a bit of information about the piece of land you’d like to purchase. Of course the seller may also not know much, but either way, this is a good place to start when you’re in the beginning stages of a potential purchase.

Consult Your Realtor

Your realtor may also have some helpful information for you. It’s possible that he or she has contacts that could be utilized to find out more information. Either way, having a realtor who can help you at this stage of the process is certainly never a bad thing.

Get a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment

This is where we come in. Whether you have some information to work off of or you’re going in completely blind, we can help you to (quite literally) get the lay of the land. We’ll work diligently to make sure that you know everything you need to know. For example, if the land you’re thinking about buying was previously used as a gas station three decades ago, we’d be able to tell, providing you with a helpful piece of information to use during negotiation.
