Property Questions

What are foreclosed properties?

A property is foreclosed upon when payments have not been received on an account for a certain period of time (usually 90 days). After a property is foreclosed upon, the property is prepared for sale once again and placed back on the site at a lower price, usually where the previous financer left off. These properties are often great investment deals to look for since they already have built-in equity.

Can I have the property surveyed?

You’re welcome to have your property surveyed. All properties on LandCentral are undeveloped, and most of them have not been surveyed. You can usually look up a local surveyor in your property’s area. Please keep in mind that LandCentral is not responsible for the costs for surveying a property.

Are mineral or water rights included with the property?

Most of the time we don't own mineral rights on our properties. Long ago, on many of our properties, an old owner retained or kept the rights, and separated them from the property itself. For this reason, we don't convey mineral rights with our properties because we rarely own them.

What if I am unable to physically go to the property before purchasing it?

A lot of our buyers find it helpful to use the satellite map when they are unable to physically visit the property. The satellite map will allow you to see the terrain of the area the property, and it can sometimes provide a street view of the property itself. This map is located on the property page in the “Maps” section.

Can I see the property before I purchase it?

Yes. You are welcome to use the maps and driving directions provided with each property page to go and take a look at the property before completing your purchase. You can locate the maps and driving directions for each property in the “Maps” section of the property page. Call us if you want more mapping help!

How can I find out about the zoning for a property?

We encourage buyers to do their own research about a property before purchasing it, but we do provide some basic zoning information on each property page in the “Property Specifics” section. In this section you can also find information about the property’s road access and slope. For more specific information about zoning on a property you can contact the county where the property is located.

At this time we do not buy property from, or sell property for, private vendors or other companies. We own all of the properties we have advertised on our website and acquired most of them from auctions, foreclosures, and tax liens.

Some websites you can explore for advertising your own property are www.landwatch.com, www.landflip.com, www.landsofamerica.com, or www.craigslist.org. Keep in mind that these websites vary in terms of how they operate. Some companies will offer you a price to buy your property outright, and others will allow you to post your property for sale on their website.

What documents will I receive after I purchase a property?

You will receive a Property Investment Portfolio within 2 weeks of purchasing your new property. This portfolio will contain your land sale contract to show that you’re purchasing the property, along with helpful information about the property itself. There will also be a customer profile builder that we will need you to fill out and send back to us. This document is extremely important because it is what allows us to correctly record your deed once the property is paid off – so be sure to send it back to us!
