Something to start with is asking why is the Texas land for sale for sale?  No matter what, there is always a reason someone puts their land up for sale.   It doesnít have to be because of a problem.  The seller might be relocating, strapped for cash due to the current state of the economy, etc.  Or possibly the seller has to part with the land because the taxes canít be paid.  Although you can feel for the seller, you can also use this hardship to your advantage.  If this hardship doesnít bring the price down, at least ask for the mineral rights with the transfer of the deed.

The county tax assessor will help you with information like is there any money owed on the property or if there are any back taxes.  If you find out there are back taxes that must be paid, you have more negotiation power.  The county supervisor or commissioner might know if there are any plans to develop the property neighboring the property for sale in Texas that you are interested in.  This information could either cause you to change your mind or again, give you bargaining power.
