Frequently Asked Questions

General Information


Absolutely! Although we primarily sell to established real estate investors, we have found that some of our best customers are new to this business. Please feel free to email or call us to talk about your interest in rural land.


We are real estate investment professionals.  We have sold more than 15,000 properties since 1999. We also own and operate Land Academy. Our members post the properties they purchase on landpin daily.


TRUST, experience, price, quality, and ease. In fact, many sellers on other forums are re-sellers of our properties. Why not buy directly from the source? LandWatch(y) specifically is run by used car-like sales people and mediocre technology developers. Land is in our blood.


Information For Buyers


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.


Unless otherwise stated, all of our properties are free, clear and current at the time of conveyance.


We purchase real property for the sole purpose of re-selling it.  Everything we know about each parcel is stated in the listing.


We purchase properties at very large volume at discounted rates so we can sell to you at wholesale prices.


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.”


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.


Information About the Purchase Process

Do I need an attorney or real estate agent?

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.

How do I plan a site visit?

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, coordinates, etc.

Will you take payments?

Sometimes, yes. Please contact us with your special circumstances.

Is title insurance available?

Yes, in most of our financed properties we will buy for you a title insurance policy in your name and close via First American Title Company unless otherwise stated.

How do I apply for owner financing?

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.
