There are many different areas of real estate; each unique in their own way. A great real estate professional will most likely have their niche. Some specialize in commercial, residential or land transactions, and some have experience in all. When you decide to purchase land in Florida, you may want to interview your potential agent to make sure they are knowledgeable in land deals. Here’s why.
If you’re interested in buying ranch, farm or timber lands, there’s a lot of extra details that need to be considered before you make a purchase.
Zoning and Land Use
You’ll need to know how the property is zoned, so you’re able to use it the way you intend. An agent familiar with the area, and seasoned in zoning and easement laws, can point you in the right direction. If you are confused, and need some added explanation—don’t hesitate to ask. Seeking the help of an attorney is also a good idea.
Condition of Soil
Knowing the overall topography of the land is critical when making a purchase. Having the wrong kind of soil, or buying land that is prone to flooding, could be detrimental to your planned use of the property. An agent experienced in land conditions will know how to provide you with this important information.
Water Sources and Rights
Having access to water is essential to agricultural land. You’ll want to know how you can access water on the property and how you’re permitted to use it. Water rights vary from state to state, so you’ll want to find a land agent who is familiar with Florida regulations.
Examining the Property
Finding an agent who will get out and observe the property with you is important. They won’t mind getting a little dirty, while pointing out the property’s best features and answering your questions properly.
