Absolutely, if you want to pay for either or both. We’ve closed many transactions ourselves and it’s super easy, so we will do it free of charge. However, if you want to pay for an escrow service you are more than welcome to do so.
We do sometimes purchase title insurance on our acquisitions, but you can do as you please. It’s generally not necessary for you to purchase title insurance, especially if we’ve already purchased title insurance on it. We generally utilize title insurance for marketing purposes, but it’s not a wise investment unless you plan to take out a bank loan. Here’s an article from Forbes on title insurance that lays out many reasons why you shouldn’t purchase it unless it’s required.
For “Pay Now” cash purchases, we can close and record the transactions ourselves, so we don’t pay for escrow services. After we receive payment, we’ll prepare a deed and ask you to review it. Upon your approval, we will notarize it and send it to the county for recording. In the vast majority of the counties that we own property, we can record the deeds electronically, so it’s usually just a couple of days after the closing date that we can email you the recorded deed.
For “Pay Monthly” purchases, we will record the deed when the promissory note is paid in full.
Unless otherwise stated, all of our properties are free, clear and current at the time of conveyance.
Occasionally, we buy property to keep for ourselves or business partners, but we generally purchase real property for the sole purpose of re-selling it. Everything we know about each parcel is stated in the listing. Please call the county planning and zoning and verify that you are allowed to do what you want to do with the property.
We are real estate investment professionals. We are part of a group that has sold more than 15,000 properties since 1999. We have no intention nor desire to scam anyone.
Whether you buy from us or a competitor, please call the county recorder to verify ownership of the parcel. Make sure the company or person that you’re buying from actually does own the property.
It’s possible that the person or company may be in the process of purchasing the land and are pre-selling the parcel, and if that’s the case, then you should request proof through an option agreement or purchase agreement that the person or entity does have the property under contract and has the legal right to sell it to you.
As an added safety measure, you can always make the down payment with a credit card. You can always dispute the transaction if it turns out to be a scam.
Or you can always pay for an escrow agent if you’re still uncomfortable about the transaction.
The property taxes are typically current unless otherwise stated and will vary from parcel to parcel. Please see the tax information section in each individual listing.
Absolutely! We sell to other established real estate investors and end users. Please feel free to email or call us to talk about your interest in rural land.
Unless indicated in the description, the rural properties we represent do not have utilities. They’re perfect for a solar or wind-powered “green getaway” or other recreational usage.
Mineral rights are not included. However, the areas have been geologically investigated and nothing of value has been found. We have never found this to be an issue with any of the properties we have sold.
Most likely, yes. Please check with the county regarding permitted property use. You can usually do almost anything you would like, including installing a manufactured home or trailer.
We’ve simplified the buying process with straightforward, easy-to-read contracts. 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 easy for anyone to understand.
Each property is unique. Some require 4 wheel drive and GPS to locate while others have “drive right up” access. Please contact us if you need any assistance with maps, gps coordinates, etc.
This is not like a car loan or a mortgage. There are no credit checks, no credit reporting, and everyone qualifies. If something changes in your life while you are making payments, we will do our best to work with you. We feel the same way about banks that you do. Sometimes, they don’t get it. We are not a bank. We are a few people in an office making a living just like you.
It’s really up to you. We can send you an electronic invoice each month which you can pay online from your bank account. You can snail-mail in a paper check if you want. Or you can set up your own bank account to auto-pay the payment to us each month.
Unfortunately, we can’t take credit cards for monthly payments at this time, although that may change in the near future. (It’s a banking regulation.)
Well, it would be illegal, pretty stupid, and relatively pointless for us to not transfer the deed to you when the property is paid in full.
After you make payments towards the property, and you would have your receipts and statements to easily prove that you have, then you have Equitable Title to the property.
The seller is required, by law, to assist the buyer with getting the title into the buyer’s name or buyer’s entity name.
Equitable title allows you to place a lien on the property or file a lawsuit if the property is paid in full and the seller refuses to cooperate with putting the deed into your name.
It’s also a criminal act, essentially theft, if the seller refuses to cooperate in transferring the deed to the buyer.
In short, we do terms deals all the time and will gladly record the deed for you when the property is paid in full.
