Q: How do I make an offer on a property?

A: Use the “Buy it Now” button on the listing (not all properties have this feature). Otherwise, simply head over to our Contact Us page and send us an email or give us a call.  We take offers “first come first serve” . . . and e-mails usually get the quickest reply.

Q: What is the “Buy it Now” button?

A: This button allows you to buy property immediately! Plus, it cuts out about $500 to $1000 of closing costs.  Some buyers are understandably uncomfortable with this, but rest assured–We have sold many deals using this simple and efficient method. Besides, we are always happy to give a full refund if you change your mind! Risk free!  Our properties sell “first come first served,” so if you see a good deal, jump on it!  Anyone could buy it at any time!  Each property only allows one check out, so the “Buy It Now” button will disappear if the property has been bought.

Q: Why are the properties discounted so much on this site?  Wouldn’t you just keep the best deals for yourself?

A: You’ll find land investment properties on this site are discounted around 20% to 50%.  We want repeat buyers who can make money re-selling the property themselves. The best way for us to do that is to offer a steal on every property we buy!

Q: I don’t see an address for the property; how do I find it?

A: Every property has the coordinates listed in the ad. Use these coordinates like an address by entering them into Google Maps, or Google Earth, and it will drop a pin right on the property!  Also, every ad on our website has a link to the GIS for the county. This will allow you to conduct due diligence research on the property.

Q: When I look up the property on the county GIS, I see someone else’s name! Why is that?

A: Most county GIS sites take months to update when a property changes hands. We are fast-paced land investors,  and we have often JUST purchased the property ourselves prior to listing it for sale.

Q: Can you come meet me at the property?

A: Unfortunately, no!  We are not always located in the same geographical area as the property you’re interested in. This is one of the reasons we can offer such good deals . .  you are welcome to go look at the property at any time you would like. No need to even get our permission!

Q: Are you an agent that lists land for sale?

A: This is a great question! No, we are not real estate agents. We buy land and sell land using our own company. We are not “brokers” or “agents” for anyone else.

Q: Can I use bank financing to buy these properties?

A: We work with investors who buy in many different ways. However, we tend to work with people who can close the deal quickly, as many of our clients pay cash. However, if you are pre-approved with a bank and can close quickly . . . we’ll certainly consider all offers! If you need financing to buy a property you see on our site, contact us today because we often offer owner financing on some of our properties.

Q: How often do you add new investment land to the website and VIP Buyers List?

A: We’re always sourcing new investment land, and we add new properties to this site on a continual basis. So, check back often as our properties tend to sell very quickly.

Q: Do you charge any fees to buy or sell?

A: We don’t charge fees.  We purchase properties at win-win prices.  We believe in finding great deals, and passing those incredible savings on to our buyers! We turn a small profit on each property to keep our company growing, and we are proud to still offer rock-bottom pricing on all our properties! Truly, buying land from our company is a win-win for everyone!

Q: What kind of land do you have available?

A: We specialize in land that is vacant and undeveloped. Some of our property may have services (i.e. sewer, water, power, etc.) and some of our property may be completely raw (i.e. no sewer, water, power, etc.). We offer both since different investors want different things. We’ll let you know what is available with each property.

Q: How are the properties on this site different from ones I’d find on the MLS?

A: Great question! Most of the land investments you’ll find on our site are ones that you’ll never find on the MLS. The MLS is the “Multiple Listing Service” which is where real estate agents list properties for sale at retail prices.  We are wholesalers; we work directly with the land owners because many times we’re able to help them solve their property problems more quickly and affordably than listing it on the MLS.

Q: What is this property zoned?

A: Buyers may contact the county with the property’s APN and Tax ID numbers to get zoning information (both of these numbers are listed in the property’s ad on our website).

Q: Is the property buildable?

A: Check with County Planning and Zoning Department (see contact information above).

Q: Are there back taxes, HOA fees, or other hidden fees?

A: Taxes are up to date (you may call the county clerk to verify). There are no HOA fees that we are aware of unless clearly stated in the ad, however buyer should always conduct due diligence. There are no other hidden fees that we are aware of. All information we know is disclosed in the ad.

Q: What kind of access does this property have?

A: Each ad will state what kind of access the property has. Some of our properties have road access, some have only legal access, some do not have either a road or legal access. This will be clearly stated in the ad.

Q: Is there water on this property?

A: The ad will state if there is a creek or other water feature. You can also see from aerial view on Google maps if there is a waterway. Otherwise, water is unknown. Note if nearby properties are irrigated, this may indicate presence of a water table and the possibility for drilling a successful well.

Q: How much will it cost to drill a well?

A: This is highly variable. Call a local well-driller for a quote.

Q: Has the property been perked?

A: Most likely, it has not (to our knowledge). Our properties are largely unimproved. If it has been perked, it will state this in the ad.

Q: Is there power available at the property?

A: Most of our properties do not have power installed. If it does, it will clearly say so in the ad. Buyers may also call the local power company to verify.

Q: Can I grow marijuana on this property?

A: Marijuana laws are complex and varied throughout the state of Oregon. From our limited understanding, it is not legal to grow marijuana on a commercial scale in the following counties: Lake, Klamath, Malheur, and Harney. Buyers should verify with the County Planning and Zoning Department.

Q: Can I park an RV or other vehicle on this property?

A: Contact the County Planning and Zoning to make sure this is not prohibited.

Q: Are mineral rights included?

A: If, when we purchased the property, the vesting deed specifically stated that mineral rights are retained by a previous owner, we will know this disclose it in the ad. But if the rights were retained further back in the chain of ownership, we might not know this without a full title search. Buyers may pay for a title search to find out for sure if mineral rights are included.

Q: Where can I get financing for one of your properties that you aren’t able to owner-finance?

A: Buyers can often get personal loans from a bank, friends, or family, or they can use a credit card to pay online.

Q: I found out from the County that you purchased the property for $_____. Why are you selling it for a higher price than you paid for it?

A: This is a business and we have to turn a small profit. We pride ourselves on providing great properties at prices that are way below their open-market comps. We incur significant costs to acquire, advertise, and sell them, and we believe our prices reflect both our core value of providing super low-priced deals, as well as the reality that we have to keep our business profitable.
