Some important questions that we ask include:

  • Does the property have a water source?
  • Is the land paid off?
  • Is it owner or bank financed?
  • Are there any structures on the Anchorage land for sale?
  • Are structures in compliance with state and city laws and regulations?
  • Can the vacant land support a septic system that can be placed far away without contaminating the water source?
  • What is the soil type on the land?

#5 View Multiple Properties. The worst thing you could do is see only a few properties and make a quick decision. Let us recommend multiple properties for you to view.

While we are viewing properties you should take photos, explore the property limits, check any creeks and wells, go inside structures and see the neighboring property as well.

Also, this is important, check and see how you will get access to your property. Do you have to drive through a neighbor's land? Or vice versa, are there any easements neighbors will need to use on your property?

#7 Spend the Night. Many buyers see the Anchorage land for sale in the daytime only. If you are making a big investment its important that you get an idea of the land and location at night. So get ready to camp out!

#8 Get Social. If you are still in love with the property visit your potential neighbors and ask them questions as well. Neighbors, unlike sellers, are not emotionally invested in the property and can give you a much-needed second opinion.

#9 Do Due Diligence. As your real estate agents we will do our due diligence on your property. This includes securing past appraisals, researching home values, etc.

However, feel free to do as much research as you need to feel comfortable as well. Together we will thoroughly research the Anchorage land for sale you are interested in. This could include:

  • If the property has a well, finding out when it was dug and how deep it is.
  • Examining plats and building codes to see if the parcels around you is marked for future development.
  • Find out if the land was used for farming and if so see if there any pesticides in the soil.
  • Examining mains to see if they are close or far away which will let you know if getting utilities will be easy and affordable, or difficult and expensive.

#10 Let Us Negotiate. As licensed Anchorage real estate professionals we are trained to negotiate the best deal on your behalf.

We will make an offer for you at the lowest respectful amount, giving you the advantage if the seller counters.

Since we are not emotionally attached to the deal, we can advise you on when to walk away and when to keep bargaining. The end goal is to always pay the minimum so you can have cash leftover to develop the land.

#11 Get Everything Checked. Lastly, before closing, make sure everything gets inspected. This includes title checks, well inspections and other property inspections.

#12 Develop Your Land. If everything checks out its time to close and enjoy your property.
