Buying land

How to find your dream land


To find the best land to build on, here are some tips that might be useful to you:


Define your needs

Before starting your search, identify your needs and essential criteria. Consider the land size, geographic location, access to utilities, transportation, schools and other amenities important to you.


Set a budget

Determine your available budget for purchasing land. This will help you focus on options that fit your financial means.


Do some research online

Use specialized real estate websites to view listings for land for sale in the areas that interest you. These platforms often allow you to filter results based on your search criteria.


Consult real estate agents

Local real estate agents are knowledgeable about available land in their area. Contact a few to tell them your criteria and ask them to help you with your search. They may offer you options that are not yet listed online.


Explore targeted neighborhoods

Come there to explore the neighborhoods that interest you. This will allow you to familiarize yourself with the surroundings, amenities and general atmosphere. Feel free to chat with local residents for additional information about the area.


Check technical feasibility

When you find land you like, check its technical feasibility. Consult a professional such as an architect or engineer to assess ground stability, geotechnical constraints, utility connection options, possible construction restrictions, etc.


Study the legal documents

Before purchasing land, be sure to carefully review the legal documents related to the property. This may include title deeds, easements, land use restrictions, rights of way, land charges, etc. If necessary, call upon a lawyer specializing in real estate to assist you in this step.


Take into account orientation and sunlight

The orientation of the land and its exposure to the sun can have an impact on the brightness and comfort of your future home. Check the orientation to the sun and imagine how that might influence the design and use of the space.


Consider the valuation potential

Think about the potential development of the region where the land is located. Developing neighborhoods or areas with upcoming infrastructure projects may have long-term capitalization potential.


Be patient and persistent

Finding the best land can take time. Be patient and persistent in your search. Don’t rush into making a decision, but be ready to seize an opportunity when you find land that meets your needs.
