Happy to hear you’re out visiting land deals! As a reminder, by visiting a Wilco Land property you agree and acknowledge that you will act in accordance with local laws/regulations and Wilco will not be liable for any damages as a result of the land viewing party. As our customer you are responsible for identifying and viewing land using your own judgement. We buy our properties site unseen, so unfortunately, cannot offer much advice on viewing the land.
Now the good stuff! Here’s my tips before heading out:
1.) Inside each of my listings on Wilco Land you will find a video, where I go over access (recommend watching that) and under property details there will be my notes on access for the particular property.
2.) Don’t know how to use GPS coordinates or utilize google earth? Here’s a tutorial made just for you: Click here to watch my instructional video
3.) The most awesome land app! This shows parcel lines and ownership, along with downloadable maps for the off-grid terrain. Try OnX or Landglide from the app store.
4.) I always recommend taking a few minutes to review aerial imagery, maps, GPS and google earth to get an idea of the property location and layout.. I like to look for natural features (neighboring homes, intersections, terrain changes/roads, etc.) to get some bearings when I get there.
5.) Don’t forget to inform someone of where you’re going and when you expect to be back 🙂
Still don’t know what the heck you’re doing! Call/text me at 605-250-1256.
I have more educational content on my blog and always happy to hop on a video call to share due diligence/educational tips with new land shoppers!
Hope you find this helpful!
