Category - Real Estate Information Sources - Real Estate Articles

Now is the time if you are ready to buy that piece of property to build a home that you have always dreamed of.  Louisiana offers beautiful places that are unique and because there are so many great places sometimes choosing the right place could be difficult.  During the looking process for land for sale in Louisiana there are a few things you need to be reminded  of so you wonít end up with land that is not what you were actually looking for.

As you are searching for that perfect piece of land for sale in Louisiana and hopefully build that dream house or second home on it be sure to check and see if the land is zoned residential.  Donít assume it is and while you are at it you might want to see if there are any zoning requirements concerning the type of house that can be built on this property. You might have thought you would be able to put a mobile home on the property while you plan your dream home, only to find out that there is a zoning bylaw or land deed covenant that will be preventing you from putting any type of modular house or mobile home on the property you wish to purchase.

If the land you are looking for is unimproved rural land for sale in Louisiana it is necessary to find out if it is within an area requiring connection to sewer and city water supply.  If not, a professional must come out and assess the availability of water.  You will probably find that drilling a well will supply your fresh water.  Itís just a matter of how deep you have to drill.  It is expensive to hire someone to drill your well, and could cost as much as several thousand dollars. 

It might be necessary to install a septic system, that is if you canít access city sewer. Be sure to ask a professional in that area about the laws as to what kind of septic system is permissible.  These are things that you probably havenít given a second thought unless you have bought unimproved rural land before, and many people arenít experienced in this area.  The land has to be perked to see about the drainage and if itís sufficient.  A professional will know what is acceptable on the land you are interested in. Start at the Parish Health Department, but be sure all of this information is checked out BEFORE you sign a contract on the land for sale in Louisiana.
