Gokce Land Due Diligence Program (GLAD): We’ll Make You a Land Due Diligence Expert in Just 7 Days

Would you like to become a land due diligence expert?




Imagine you just bought a beautiful parcel of land in West Virginia right near the river in a picturesque small town.

You are thrilled with the purchase and excited to begin planning your perfect weekend getaway.

But then, two weeks later, you get a letter from the local assessor.

The assessor had found an error in the tax map you were using to locate the property.

It turns out that the metes and bounds description in the property deed placed the lot in a completely different location from what the assessor’s map showed!

It seemed that the beautiful parcel of near-waterfront land you thought you had purchased doesn’t exist!

Even worse, there is a house on the land, which has been occupied for over 20 years.

Believe it or not, this is in fact a true story.

And it happened to us.

Take it from me, after buying hundreds of parcels of vacant land, I can tell you that raw land is complicated.

You have to deal with:

bulletLocal building and zoning laws

bulletFaulty ownership claims

bulletImproperly assessed lots

bulletEnvironmental issues

Just to name a few.

So if you are looking for that perfect weekend getaway to hunt, camp, or build your dream home, how do you protect yourself?

How do you know whether the property has a major flaw that will prevent you from using it as you would like?

How do you even know what questions you should be asking?

Well, in the Gokce Capital Land Due Diligence Program (GLAD), we provide a comprehensive land buying due diligence checklist of over 150 items to guide you through the pitfalls of land acquisition.

Broken down into a series of short videos, GLAD will make you an expert on land due diligence in just seven days.

So you can begin your property search armed with the knowledge you need to find your perfect property.

Your land is waiting for you!




Does The Gokce Land Due Diligence Program Have Reviews From Existing Students?

Yes! Here are a few reviews:

Who Am I?

Are you wondering how my experience may be relevant to you?

Well, my name is Erika Benson and I am an architect by training and a former Affordable Housing Director for the City of New York turned full-time Land Investor.

My company, Gokce Capital, has completed over 700 transactions.

So we’ve seen it all – the good, the bad and the ugly.

And in working with hundreds of property owners, we’ve noticed a common theme.

bulletA property owner who bought a parcel of land completely covered in wetlands for over $50,000

bulletAnother land buyer who discovered contaminated oil tanks buried beneath her new property

Then there was one retired lawyer looking to sell his section of land (~640 acres) in Nevada.

He had bought the property to fulfill his lifelong dream of raising cattle.

Yet, a few years later, he decided not to retire in Nevada so he reached out to us.

We took a quick look at the lot and could not find any way to access the property.

When I told the owner this, he said he had been assured by his seller that legal right-of-ways existed by law on every section boundary line.

Yet, when we spoke to three local lawyers as well as the district attorney’s office, none could identify any such law.

It seemed our seller had been misled when he purchased his land.

This is when it hit us – if a lawyer could make such a mistake, what about the rest of us?

There’s so much information out there to help you buy a house, but almost nothing on vacant land.

And we’ve heard from numerous land buyers who say they feel overwhelmed by the land buying process.

Perhaps you too are feeling this way.

That’s why we put together the Gokce Capital Land Due Diligence Program (GLAD), to provide an exhaustive guide covering everything we have learned about the various dangers of buying land and how to avoid them.

Is the Gokce Land Due Diligence Program for You?

Consider this.

You find a property that appears to be perfect for building.

It’s the right size.

It’s zoned residential and there are homes in the surrounding vicinity.

Yet, when you go to pull a building permit, you find yourself blocked.

The property was illegally subdivided and now exists in a kind of twilight zone.

Too small to be used as recreational land, not fit for building.

And you could never tell this by simply looking at the lot.

Are you worried about running into such issues when buying land?

What Is Included with the Gokce Land Due Diligence Program?

In the 1960s, a company bought hundreds of acres of land in the desert south of Albuquerque.

They subdivided this land into thousands of building lots and sold the properties using glossy marketing material showing beautiful suburban communities.

Thousands rushed to buy what seemed to be the next great investment.

Yet, the company had conveniently failed to mention they had never developed infrastructure in the area.

Thus, the area never blossomed into the idyllic bedroom communities promised.
