Frequently Asked Questions
How do I buy land from Agility Lands?
Buying land from us is pretty simple. You can pay cash almost in all cases. We do accept owner financing for some cases. At this point, our owner financing is between 12 months to 36 months. In other words, we may be able to finance the balance of your payment left after down payment for 1 year to 3 year payment terms. Visit the property of your choice from www.agilitylands.com/listings and then fill out the form as you desire
Are there any fees/costs associated with buying land from Agility Lands?
Usually, the closing cost, if any, is buyer’s responsibility. In some cases, we can waive the closing cost, documentation fees and transfer of the deed at our expense. Once you pay cash, we initiate the deed transfer with the county recordation process immediately. In cases of owner financing, however, the deed transfer or recordation starts once all the installment payments are completed.
Please visit our agilitylands.com/listings page and go to the listing page of your choice and fill out the form for that land. We will be in touch
How long does it take to close?
It depends on your situation, but typically we can close within 3 to 14 days. Much sooner if fully paid in cash
I'm behind in my loan, do I need to make another payment?
If you purchased your land from us using owners financing and you are behind on payment, no worries, get in touch with us and we can regularize your payment schedule one more time
How to do a title search
There are various ways to do title search for a land purchase you are interested in. You can always get a settlement or closing company involved for a fee. However, there are ways to do a free title search as well.
As you decide to purchase a land, you should make sure that the title to that land is free from defects. “defects” is a legal terms and it refers to anything attached to the land, such as another person’s rights, that could affect how you use the land or decrease its value. You should get a preliminary title search for your property when you prepare to make the purchase, but you shouldn’t rely on that alone. You will need to conduct your own property search. You could, of course, hire someone, but that costs money. Here are some ways to do it for free. Chains of title and deed information are available for your perusal if you visit the courthouse. You must go to the courthouse where the land is located. In some cases, you may have to go through the different papers by hand, noting the specific transfers of the title and any requirements that went along with it. This form of title search is time consuming, but it is free. Remember that you should always be able to find your property in the county website. If the property does not show up in the search, that means that the information is either mislabeled or it is not in the current system. It doesn’t mean that there are no restrictions on it or other similar issues.
