DH wants to look at a few properties tomorrow <big smile!> that have been listed locally throughout the past few winter months. The diff. properties range from 7-40 acres. Appears all are unimproved. Don't know of restrictions yet, tho a few do allow mobile homes (OK by us, but will prob. build later). Tho I've be SO into reading, and reading, and trying to learn from y'all since finding this site (love it!!), my middle age brain has taken a hike right now on what to ask about properties. Can someone give me a list of basic things to ask about (that I can maybe print out and take with us to review), so that we don't forget to ask to ask realtor? I do know some concerns are: easements right-of ways mineral rights surveys zoning And later on, contingencies on title, perc tests, water, septic issues, etc. But what am I forgetting? Appears this realtor deals mostly with land, in the area we're interested in (next country north)..some improved, some not. We want to see what he has to offer. Next question is, is this OK to let him show us, or should we be using a buyers agent to start out with? Or is it OK for this realtor to just show just, then if we're seriously interested in one of his properties, to then get a buyers agent to do the negotiating/close deal? I'm just not sure of the protocol of it all. This realtor mainly lists land with owner financing. I'm a bit leary, but Dh feels we can do this, pay as we go while making some home improvements in next year of two to sell this house, while working to improve land..then sell house and move on to our next life's stage. Aside from the list of things to ask about, do we need a buyers agent just to go look at land at this point, or wait until we find something we're seriously concidering? Thanks in advance, should I not have chance to touch base! Dee P.S. While raking leaves from some flower beds today, spotted the first new green tips of daffodil leaves popping up from the soil...Yahoo! Did that make my day! I do miss the snow (the fun stuff!) and definitive seasons of "home" up north in NY state, but I sure do love our short Winter to Spring seasons here!! I'm ready to plant!
