Tips When Searching For Calgary Vacant Lots
Do Your Homework
Any real estate transaction is important; however purchasing a vacant lot can be more challenging than buying a residential property. If you buy a house, either you'll live in it or someone else will live in it. On a vacant lot, you can build a house, a commercial property, a mixed-use property or you can hold it as a long-term investment. However, that same lot could come with a whole host of restrictions and other issues that could ruin your plans if you fail to do the proper research.
Where your land is located, either in the city or in the country, is of primary importance and goes back to your reasons for purchasing. If you are purchasing a vacant lot as an investment, consider the resale value of that lot down the road. If you're purchasing a lot for commercial purposes, don't buy something that's isolated. In fact, check with the seller to see if a traffic study has been undertaken at your location. And if you're looking to build, make sure you are allowed to. Don't assume that you can do whatever you want on your vacant lot. Vacant lot listings should give you an accurate picture of what covenants, ordinances and restrictions come with a particular lot. The map view will help you identify what amenities are close to your vacant lot, such as shopping, schools and transit connections.
When purchasing land in Alberta, title insurance can be provided by the Land Titles Office. This type of policy certifies and guarantees that you, as the registered owner of the vacant lot or land, has a good title. Which really means that any improvements on the land are in compliance with any zoning bylaws in place or that there are no encroachments. If for some reason something comes up after you have become the registered land owner and something needs to be done to your lot or land to comply with some unforeseen regulation, the cost of the work to meet compliance will be covered. It's coverage against potential legal issues involving your vacant lot or land. It's not a requirement; however should you decide to build on your lot your mortgage lender may want you to purchase title insurance in order to protect their investment.
A recent survey or property report should come with your vacant lot and should be included as a condition of sale. This will save you time and a lot of money after the fact.
Factor in the cost of connecting utilities to your vacant lot. Your vacant lot in the city will have water, sewer, gas, electric, cable and phone on-site in an established neighbourhood. Check your vacant lot listing to determine how close utilities lie to your rural property. If you're prepared to drill a well or put in a septic tank find out how much it will cost first.
Zoning is put in place to protect property owners from living next door to unwanted development such as a sewage treatment plant. Discovering what zoning is in place isn't difficult and your vacant lot listing should state precisely what you can and cannot do on your lot. Residential zoning in urban areas will help you discover whether you can build a single-family dwelling or multi-family detached dwelling, and whether you can build a retail storefront with residential housing above it.
Land use is frequently dictated far into the future, so it's a good idea to research municipal records to see if a freeway or large commercial area is in the cards for your neighbourhood.
