    I purchased vacant land about 10,000 sq ft in Bel Air, LA County California in 2016. I bought from the guys who purchased it from auction. My land is located on top of a cliff/hill and it has no access.
    I listed the land with a sales agent last year for 100k and got some offers but title insurance was an issue due to purchased from the auction. Now I listed for 36k but I don’t want to sell at that price.

    Very good info, you covered a lot of critical issues.

    I actually bought 80 acres of pasture land in MO and sold after about 12 years for a very good profit, almost
    triple in value. All the time it was leased for cattle and the yearly taxes were less than $50.

    Hey Phil, great tips as always! Denzel here in Bend, Or. Bought a owner carry a year ago on 5 yr contract. Now finding the city (newer city) wants to make it part of the new downtown. I wanted to move my 426 SQ ft structure 50 ft and put on a foundation for financing. First they said that I would have to put in sidewalks! Now saying if I sign off easement of 11′ I won’t have to! Should I just wait them out and make them buy my 11′?? ( By moving house 50 ‘ from lot 4-5 to 7-8 it’ll open up 1-6 to do “something” with and finance it out. Thanks again, Denzel.

  14. Hi Phil,
    You stated that if your land does not have access to county maintained road you would not be permitted to install a septic system. Is this the case in most or all states? Or does this rule only exist in the place in Florida you were referencing?

    • Freedom Mentor says

      This is not only in Florida but is applicable anywhere you are evaluating buying land; investigate thoroughly.

  15. Thanks this is very good information.
