The process of purchasing land is vastly different than buying a fully serviced home in the city limits. It is important to work with a real estate professional that understands the unique challenges of raw land. There are several things to consider when purchasing land. The location, usability and available utilities are some of the most important factors. Another inherent difference of purchasing land is the financing, which typically requires a minimum down payment of 20% or more.
