General questions about our company, process, and properties…
Q: What type of land do you offer?
A: We specialize raw, unimproved, vacant land and which typically have no structures of value. Some of our property may have utilities such as water, sewer and electricity, and some are completely raw, meaning there are no utilities.
We offer both since different investors want different things. Please be sure to review the property specs, for each individual property, on our website.
Note that we use a proprietary 12-Point Vetting System to carefully review and qualify all of the land that we buy and sell – to ensure it’s value.
Q: Why are the properties discounted so much? Wouldn’t you just keep the best deals for yourself?
A: Our investment properties are discounted around 20% to 40% because we acquire our properties from landowners who no longer want to own property.
Oftentimes, they may want to sell because they need the money, so our company can help them out by buying their raw land quickly for cash, which is a win-win. Then, we pass that discount along to you.

Q: How are the properties on this site different from ones I’d find on the MLS?
A: Great question! Most of the land investments you’ll find on our site are ones that you’ll never find on the MLS. The MLS is the “Multiple Listing Service” which is where real estate agents list properties for sale. We work directly with the landowners and homeowners since we’re able to help them solve their problem more quickly and cheaper than listing it on the MLS. In most cases.
Q: Are you real estate agents?
A: No, we are not real estate agents or brokers. We are private land investors who specialize in buying and selling raw, unimproved land – and we own 100% of the properties we sell, outright.
We do not publish or promote any other properties on our website.
Q: How are the properties on this site different from most of the listing on the MLS?
A: The MLS is the “Multiple Listing Service”, which is where real estate agents typically list properties for sale. Although many of our listings are also shown on the MLS, our properties are discounted because we work directly with landowners, not Realtors.
This allows us to offer you property at wholesale prices (rather than retail pricing).
Q: Does the property have utilities?
A: Each property is different. Some have water/sewer/electricity and some do not. Check the listing for specifics on each lot.
Q: Are mineral rights included?
A: No, mineral rights are not included with the purchase. We have never found this to be an issue with any of the properties we have sold.
Q: Can I raise crops or animals on the property?
A: Properties that are zoned for agriculture can be used for farming and animals. Check the properties listing for this information, and check with the county if you have specific uses like this.
Q: Are mobile homes or RV’s allowed on the property?
A: Properties that are outside of city limits, typically have no restrictions as to what you can put on your land.
We check with the city/county regarding each plot, and list this information on the property’s webpage. It is always recommended that you double check this information yourself as certain permits may still apply.
Q: Is land a safer investment than the stock market?
A: Some of the wealthiest people on earth got their start in real estate, and for good reason. Simply put, they’re not making any more land. There is a finite supply, and as the world’s population grows, rural, undeveloped land will likely become even more valuable.
Q: Is title insurance available?
A: This will depend on the type of closing you choose, but in most cases, title insurance is commonly available. This is completely up to you.
Q: How much are property taxes and are they current?
A: The property taxes are typically current unless otherwise stated and will vary from parcel to parcel. We will disclose all of the tax information for our listings before they are sold.
Q: Do I need an attorney or real estate agent?
A: We’ve simplified the buying process with a straightforward, easy-to-read buyer agreement. Of course, we encourage you to hire a professional if you think it’s necessary, but we’ve done our best to make the process as low cost and easy to understand as possible for you.
Q: Why should I buy from you instead of a real estate agent?
A: A real estate agent’s fees can range from 5% to 8% of the purchase price, so although you can use a real estate agent to purchase, you are essentially using a middleman (i.e retail prices).
Alternatively, our business model allows you to buy from us directly (i.e. at wholesale prices).
Q: How do I make arrangements to inspect the property before I buy it?
A: You may inspect the land at any time using the Google Maps directions that are provided with each property’s listing.
We highly recommend that you check the property’s webpage before traveling to the plot, to be sure it is still available (i.e. not PENDING).
Q: Do you charge any fees to buy or sell?
A: We do not charge any fees to purchase your property, however, there is a $295 document fee added to the sale of all plots (as indicated on all property pages).
Q: Do you offer owner financing?
A: No, we do not offer owner financing at this time, but you are welcome to get 3rd party lending.
Q: How do I purchase your property?
A: Your sales representative will answer ALL of your questions so that you feel completely confident and comfortable with your purchase.
You may purchase a property outright with a wire transfer, cashier’s check or a secure credit card payment on our website.
Our properties are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and it’s highly recommended that reserve your property with a $499.00 (earnest money) non-refundable deposit – which you can make with your credit card, over the phone, or securely on our website.
Once you do this, the property will be marked as PENDING and no one else will be able to purchase it. Full payment is then required within 3 business days, at which time the closing process will begin!
