There is always a first time for everything; buying a land is not an exception. To avoid being duped or scammed when you want to purchase a land, here are 6 steps to follow below.
1. HAVE AN AGENT WHO HAS LOTS OF EXPERIENCE WITH LAND.
To buy a land for the first time, you have to know someone with adequate experience. It’s best to have an agent who has lots of experience with land. Some land be restricted or out of bound and without prior knowledge, such lands can be sold to you. At the end, you won’t be able to get your money and the land won’t be yours. So, to not fall into such situation, you need an agent with adequate knowledge and experience in the procurement of land.
2. HAVE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF THE SIZE OF AN ACRE.
Several people get duped a lot in this area. When the seller discovers that the buyer doesn’t know the size of an acre, the buyer can be taken advantage of and lesser than the size of the land to be bought would be sold.
3. DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT TO USE THE LAND FOR.
There are different types of land for different use. Land for farming, land for residential building, land for commercial use, and many others. So, you have to decide first on what you want to use the land for so that the land you’ll buy would meet it’s purpose and any-how lands won’t be sold to you.
4. START SAVING MONEY.
Of course, money is needed to purchase a land. It’s as simple as it is. Have a budget and start saving in advance.
5. INVESTIGATE THE LAND’S HISTORY.
Some lands are off bound or government owner. If history of such lands are not known, they can be bought by ignorant buyer and their money could disappear in the end.
Inquire and ensure that the land you’re about to pay for is for sale before you pay for it.
6. MAKE SURE YOU CAN ACCESS IT.
Avoid online lands. Many fall into the trap of being sent pictures of a piece of land online. They pay for it and at the end, they can’t access it.
Ensure that you can access the land you’re about to purchase before you make payments.
