What You Should Know About Acreage for Sale in Lake Stevens

September 13, 2017  

acreage for sale in Lake Stevens

Sometimes, buying someone else’s home doesn’t have the right feel. Starting with a “clean slate,” or vacant land and a brand-new house that you can design any way you please are a big draw for many people. Locating acreage for sale in Lake Stevens, in an area of your choosing, can be a fun and exciting experience.

There are some important considerations that should be evaluated before deciding upon that “perfect” property. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Zoning. Prior to signing a contract, be certain that you will be able to build the home that you have planned.
  • Senses. Are there smells and sounds that are less than appealing in the area? Farm smells, exhaust fumes, sirens, train whistles and plane engines can devalue property and be a source of constant annoyance.
  • Hazards. Investigate potential soil problems, a protected habitat, fire protection, etc.
  • Elevation. Ensure that the land is stable.
  • Easements. Learn about road maintenance and the boundaries for the land. Obtaining a land survey will help.
  • Services. Is city water provided or will you need a well? Also look into the necessity for septic or sewer and electrical and communication services.
  • Appraisals. Whether you have an appraisal as required by a lender or you acquire your own, this will help you make a suitable offer on the property you want to buy.
