FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I use the GPS coordinates to find the property in Google Maps?

Note: these are sample coordinates, please copy the GPS coordinates from this listing page.

Can I build a home on the lot? Yes, you can build on this lot. Please contact the Tierra Grande Improvement Association for more information on building regulations. All construction in Tierra Grande must go through the Improvement Association’s Architectural Control process first before going to the County or State. All information on this process can be found on this web page along with the forms and contact information for permits for Valencia County and the NM State Construction Industries Division. Please note that mobile and manufactured homes are not allowed on the lot.

Can I visit the property? Of course! There is no need to make an appointment – please feel free to visit the property at any time. Please also note that we won’t be able to meet you at the lot.

Does the property have an address? No, since the property is a vacant parcel of land, it hasn’t been assigned an address. However, you can plug the approximate GPS coordinates into Google Maps in order to locate the property (as shown above).

Has a survey been done? No, we have not had a survey commissioned, but if you would like to pay for a survey we would be happy to work with your chosen surveyor.

Can you park an RV on the property? We recommend that you contact the county to confirm, but, in most counties, RVs are only allowed on a temporary basis.

Are taxes up to date? We pay all tax bills as soon as we receive them, but you can always check with the County Treasurer to verify taxes have been paid. 

Has a title search been done? Given the price point of our properties, we do not typically purchase a title search or title insurance when we buy a lot. However, we do our own research to check for title issues and liens and would never purchase a property that has a known title issue. We are also happy to work with the company of your choosing at buyer’s expense.

How does the closing process work? We try to keep the closing simple and straightforward. Please just send us the full name of everyone you would like on the deed, a mailing address and phone number, and whether you would like to purchase with cash or utilize owner financing. We will then send you an invoice for either the down payment plus the document fee or the cash discount price plus the document fee. We accept payment via Zelle, wire transfer or ACH transfer as well as PayPal for properties priced under $5000.

If you purchase with owner financing, we will then send the loan documents to you for your signature via docusign.

If you purchase with cash, we will then draft and record the deed transferring title to you. Once the deed is recorded, we will send you a copy for your records. 

Do you work with a title company? Yes, we are always happy to work with the company of your choosing at buyer’s expense.

How does owner financing work? With owner financing, we will sign a land contract that gives you legal right to use the property; however, you won’t be able to pull any building permits during the loan term. Once the down payment and document fee are paid, we will send you a link to our third party loan servicing software, where you will make monthly payments for the length of the loan term. After the loan is paid in full, we will then transfer title to you.

What kind of deed will I receive? You will receive a special warranty deed, which means the seller is guaranteeing that the property wasn’t encumbered during the time of his/her ownership.

How many people can be included on the deed? You can have as many people listed on the deed as you would like.

Can the deed be made out to an LLC? Yes, the deed can be made out to an LLC or corporation.

Does the property come with mineral rights? We buy all of our properties assuming that we only have the surface rights. In order to determine whether a particular property has mineral rights, you will usually need to hire a title company to run a mineral rights search going all the way back to the original homestead.

“Buying real estate is not only the best way, the quickest way, the safest way, but the only way to become wealthy.” – Marshall Field, entrepreneur
