Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I invest in a Florida Vacant Lot?
A: Investing in a Florida lot is a very good bet for the following reasons: Florida's population in 2008 was over 18 million people and is projected to increase at at an extra-ordinarilly high rate. Florida is currently the fourth most populated state in the U.S. and will surpass New York by the year 2012 to become the 3rd most populated state. The U.S. Census Bureau confirms that over 78 million baby boomers will be retiring over the next 30 years and that 20% of them (16 Million) will be retiring or buying a second home in the state of Florida. Such large numbers of population growth equates to jobs and a stronger economy in Florida. With such demand for the land, prices will increase. Florida's coastline land is scarce and expensive due to existing demand there. The population growth will move inland where prices are more affordable. Thus, a low priced buildable lot in the interior portion of Florida is a sound investment for the future.

Q: Is your company a Realtor/Broker?
A: No. We are investors that research our own properties that we sell. You are dealing direct.

Q: Can a Foreigner buy land in the USA?
A: Yes. Foreigners can buy real estate anywhere in the United States. No special government documentation is required in order to take title into your own name. After you have received your Warranty Deed you will need to make sure to pay the annual real estate taxes each year to assure that tax liens are not placed against your property.

Q: What is the minimum required down payment to purchase a property?
A: Our contract requires a minimum deposit of USD$500.  Our real estate contracts only become valid after the deposit funds have been received.

Q: Who do I make my deposit payment to and how do I pay it?
A: Deposit payments will be made to us. We accept payments via; (bank wires, cashier's check, credit card, PayPal, money order, or cash).

Q: How long does it take to close and when will I get the deed to my property?
A: Our contracts typically have a 30 days closing period. The means that the balance will be due within 30 days from the effective date of the signed contract. After the balance has been received, then the Warranty Deed to the Buyer's name is recorded into the public records. The recorded Warranty Deed will sent via (Fedex) to the Buyer within 10 to 14 days after the balance has been received.  The Fedex on-line tracking number will be provided to the buyer.  The Fedex package will also contain an Official County Map showing exactly where the lot is located, a Plat Map Printout, Photos, and our Company literature.

Q: Can I build a home on the land?
A: Yes. All of the properties we sell are zoned for single family or in some cases duplex homes. You would need to obtain the proper building permits before you begin construction. And although you can build anytime you wish, there is no requirement to build. We do not sell land that has a time requirement to build.

Q: Are water services installed on the properties you sell?
A: The property details of a property will disclose the utility services available for a property. Properties that are located in areas that are serviced by city water will be noted. In these cases, city water services would be obtained by simply connecting to the water supply at the property line. On properties where city water is not available, it will be necessary to have a well drilled for water. Wells are very common throughout Florida. Every property we sell will have water available either from a drilled well or from a city water supply. The cost of drilling a well is very comparable to the cost of connecting to an existing city water supply line. The cost either way is approximately $1,850 if building a home.

Q: Do the properties have electricity and telephone service?
A: Yes. Our properties are located close to major population areas where electric and telephone services are accessible. The property details of a property will disclose the utility services available for a property.

Q: Are sewer services installed on the properties you sell?
A: The property details of a property will disclose the utility services available for a property. Properties that are located in areas that are serviced by city sewer will be noted. In these cases, city sewer services would be obtained by simply connecting at the property line. On properties where city water is not available, it will be necessary to have a septic system installed. Septic systems are very common throughout Florida. The cost of installing a septic system will depend on the area but will be approximately $2,200 if building a home. The cost of connecting to an existing city sewage line would be slightly less.
