When I am inspecting land which is about to be put up for sale in Chatham County or anywhere in North Carolina, I am looking for things which may or may not increase or decrease the value of a property.
All of these factors combined give me a great idea on how much a property can sell for.
Here are just a few of the factors:
- Does it have road frontage?
- What kind of vegetation is there?
- What is the topography?
- Are there streams or waterways?
- How is the soil?
- Are there tires, cars, or other debris around?
- What kind of neighborhood is it?
- Is there anything nearby such as a hunting preserve or a factory chicken house?
- Are the corners identifiable?
- Are there any overlaps such as a fence or building overlaps?
I always bring with me the land survey, arial photos, and a plat.
On site inspections of land being sold typically take me 3 – 6 hours.
