Buying Land

Make the Land Buying Experience Fun

Buying recreational land, especially for the first time, can be an exciting and rewarding experience. However, the road to owning land, especially in the busy market today, is a daunting task. When is the right time? Can I afford it? Is it the right move for me and my family? It can be very stressful when determining what suits your needs and if buying property is worth the investment.

The stress is understandable. There are a lot of steps involved in buying land, from getting a handle on your finances and researching potential properties to negotiating contracts and dealing with lenders. The task evokes a jumble of a million different emotions: joy, fear, anxiety, excitement, happiness, desire, just to name a few.

Buying land doesn’t have to be an overwhelming experience. It can be fun if you are well-prepared! Pat Porter, owner and broker at RecLand Realty, shares some tips on making the land-buying experience fun instead of scary.
