It’s really been no secret that the national real estate market has cooled down considerably. After years of skyrocketing prices there has been a great slow down in the market. But even as the markets are suffering, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas are all heating up. There is now an opportunity for vacant land buyers to purchase large parcels of land near towns and cities for extremely reasonably prices that fit the everyday man’s pocketbook.
The first reason why now is a great time to purchase this land is that it’s a buyer’s market. Owners have recognized that the property pricing in most of the United States is over-inflated. Based on this over-inflation, prices have come down and you can now buy this rural land for extremely reasonable prices.
The second is that we qualify almost all buyers as to mortgages on our properties. Our interest rates are zero percent which may be paid on a low monthly payment. There is no prepayment penalty. Make the most of these mortgages and properties by securing a mortgage with our company and immediately owning your own land. You can live the American dream.
The third major reason to purchase rural land now is that the stock market is unpredictable. It has had highs and lows and the everyday person cannot figure out how this market works. Such market volatility has become a normal part of the U.S. economy and it is truly a bit too unpredictable for the average investor. Swings in the market can create great instability and be costly. Fees and taxes can eat away at any potential profits. Affordable land may be the most solid long term investment for you to consider. There are larger acreage parcels, small acreage parcels, partial acre lots and gated community homesites. These rural lands are becoming the new hot land opportunities. Don’t miss out, get more bang for your real estate buck.
The fourth reason to purchase land today is that Real Estate holdings can help you develop and build impressive, diversified, safe and valuable financial holdings. They can have an excellent tax advantage and intrinsic value. Real estate is a very tangible asset that can be used and reused for generations to come and the law of supply and demand will usually create appreciation over time. When you leverage your real estate, you can create wealth for you and future generations to enjoy.
Once I know the property’s legal description how do I find the property?
A. There are many ways to find your information through public channels. Some of the helpful public ways for researching and successfully locating your property are as follows:
I. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The BLM is an agency within the United States Department of the Interior that administrates over approximately 262 million acres of American public lands, located primarily in twelve Western States. If your land is located within those 12 Western States, we would suggest that you contact a field office where the property is located and ask them any questions you may have about the property prior to attempting to locate your parcel of land. A list of those field offices may be found at http://www.blm.gov.
II. BLM Regional Map. The BLM Map is really something you should review prior to planning any site visit of your property. This Map shows the Range, Township and Section, as well as the primary and secondary roads and trails leading to the property. This Map should be used in conjunction with any typical road atlas.
It should be noted that while we attempt to give driving directions in many of our auctions, they are given as a courtesy to our buyers and may contain errors or omissions and therefore should not be relied upon. You should look at: (1) Plat Maps, which is a map used to indicate the location of boundaries of individual properties such as lots and blocks; (2) The Legal Description, which is the description of the property used to identify the real estate and is located in each of our auctions or on the Deed. Further you should consider using the (3) Road Atlas & Gazzetter which is a guide showing detailed topographical maps, back roads and G.P.S. grids. At times we will also give you (4) GPS (Global Positioning System) reference points to calculate positions accurate to within meters of the property. This system is very helpful but not always necessary. Most of the above maps do explain how to read the Townships and Ranges shown in each. You should be acquainted with each of these methods for reading the BLM Maps as they may be very useful to you. Please remember as stated in our Units of Measure that one Section of land contains one square mile, and one Township contains 36 Sections.
