If you’re interested in purchasing property located in any of the East Texas regions, you’ll probably be happy to know that there are many beautiful tracts to choose from. How do you go about comparing one parcel of land for sale with another? We’d like to share with you a bit of what our company has learned over the years about evaluating acreage for sale.

What Is Your Intended Use?

Perhaps above all, this question dominates your decision-making process when comparing one piece of vacant land for sale with another. How will you use this land? Are you planning to grow vegetables here? Will you bring in animals, such as sheep or cattle, who will enjoy pastures for grazing and who could use some mature trees for shade? Will you and your family be spending recreational time here? Answers to these questions will determine what features you may want to find on your new parcel of land. Here are some other questions to consider.

What Will The Resale Value Be In Several Years?

  • Chances are, you may want to sell your acreage down the road. While it’s impossible to determine how much you will receive when you put your Texas land up for sale in the future, there are projections and estimates you can make when you compare one plot of land with another. Take a look at the rate at which sale prices have been growing in the region. You may be best off purchasing land in an area where value has appreciated faster.

How Accessible Is The Property?

  • If you intend to make use of your land, you may be better off with property that isn’t too remote or difficult to access. If your new piece of land is far away from where you live, you may not have the opportunity to get as much use out of it as you’d like. If you or anyone in your family requires mobility assistance, you’ll want to consider the accessibility of your property; flat land with convenient entry points may be more favorable over land that has elevations and canyons.

How Many Acres Do You Need?

  • Depending on what you want to use your land for, and how much you are planning to spend, you’ll need to come up with a ballpark acreage estimate. If you require more acres but you have a limited budget, you’ll need to make your dollars stretch! If how many acres are for sale is important to you when comparing properties, you may need to choose the right sized piece of land over one that may have more features. Or you can take your time and locate the perfectly sized property that has most of the features you’re looking for.

What Features Appeal To You The Most?

  • Speaking of features, what are you looking for? Do you need lakes or creeks? Are trees important? What about scenic knolls and varied terrain? Or will flat land work best? Think about why you’re purchasing land in Texas and determine what features you want the most.

Make A Side-by-Side Comparison

  • Finally, make a list that clearly shows a side-by-side comparison of the properties you’re considering. What are the pros and cons of each one? Putting it all in writing succinctly may help you reach your decision more confidently!
