Land for sale in Lakeland FL is readily available. Lots for sale and acreage for sale can be found all around the city. Larger parcels, lots for residential builds or even farmland for those who love horses, cattle or raising crops etc.
Buying land takes a methodical approach. Especially larger chunks of land which you may not be able to walk out. There could be old wells, septic tanks, cellars or who knows what. Those things can effect your ability to use the land for your planned purpose. You should at least have a drone flown over the property or walk all around it if possible. Often in Polk County livestock will be present and the owner may have to secure them before it is safe. Be cautious but be thorough. A seasoned professional can assist you in asking the proper questions.
Lots can either be large commercial lots or smaller residential lots. Both are very popular and readily available in Lakeland. When you purchase lots there are also things to consider. I have seen some very strict HOA agreements in more exclusive communities even penalizing the seller for re-sale. I have also seen lots with buried utilities in the back keeping the owner from building a private pool later. There is a lot to consider when purchasing. One way to deal with the unknown is get a 30 day inspection period to conduct a feasibility study to make sure you can use the lot. Once again a seasoned professional like you will find with Wendy Morris Realty will be of great assistance and will help protect your best interest.
What is it worth? What must you legally disclose? How should it be marketed? All of these are valid questions especially considering some owners know very little about the property's history or prior use. Not long ago some very strong pesticides were commonly used to dip cattle in and that may even effect the value if signs of that use are still present. What are the easements and are utilities available or scheduled to be? Can the property be accessed by a road? All valid questions which may be asked by a potential buyer.
