Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, of course! Please feel free to visit the property at your convenience prior to making your purchase. We encourage this when possible, and provide GPS coordinates, maps, and driving directions on each property page under the “Location” information. If you need more help locating the property, we are happy to help.
Due to the nationwide span and the remote locations of our properties, we are not able to meet you at a property, however, you are welcome to visit the property you are interested in at any time that’s convenient for you. The street address, GPS coordinates, and directions can be found on the property page under the “Location” information. Feel free to contact us should you need additional assistance locating a property.
No. All of our properties are free from liens or any other encumbrances.
Yes! You can purchase a property no matter where you live. We’ve even had buyers from other countries purchase land from us.
Everyone qualifies for an installment payment plan on a property. No credit check is required.
Once you’ve decided on the right property, you can check out directly on the property page by filling out the “Buyer’s Application”. You can choose which payment option you want or if you want the cash discount (paid in full) price. Please feel free to contact us for all payment options. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

We take ownership of properties under business entity name The Land Nerd, LLC
Unless indicated in the description, the rural properties we represent do not have utilities. They’re perfect for a solar- or wind-powered “green getaway.”
Mineral rights are not included. However, the area has been geologically investigated and nothing of value has been found. We have never found this to be an issue with any of the properties we have sold.
Yes, if the property is zoned for agriculture and recreation. You can do almost anything you’d like with it, including installing a manufactured home or trailer. Please do your due diligence. We put what the zoning is and what we know about the restrictions on each property page.
Some of the wealthiest people on earth got their start in real estate, and for good reason. Simply put, they’re not making any more land. There is a finite supply, and as the world’s population grows, rural, undeveloped land will likely become even more valuable.
On each property page, it will list the approximate property taxes per year. And if there is a HOA, it will also list that amount annually too.
We’ve simplified the buying process with straightforward, easy-to-read contracts. Of course, we encourage you to hire a professional if you think it’s necessary, but we’ve done our best to make the process easy for anyone to understand.
We want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase of rural land. If you’re not satisfied for any reason with the first 30 days after closing, simply call us, and we will either exchange your parcel for one you like better, or refund your note payments up to that point. It’s simple: if you don’t love it, we don’t want you to own it. One of the benefits of working with The Land Nerd is that you’re dealing with the actual owner of the property, not some developer or shell corporation. And we want you to be happy.

Your property isn’t “locked in” until we receive your down payment. Before making arrangements to see a specific parcel, we strongly encourage you to pay your down payment to ensure that the property hasn’t been sold to someone else by the time you arrive. (Remember, your down payment is covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.) We’ll then make arrangements with you to visit the property at your own expense. Will give you maps, GPS coordinates, and we’ll even connect you with a local surveyor.
Within 24 hours of receiving the information from the Buyer’s Application, you will receive the documents via email using www.eversign.com to sign digitally. (We can also mail the documents.) This packet will include your Land Contract, Promissory Note, and Purchase Sale Agreement. Once you sign the documents digitally we will set you up on automatic payments (another way to save trees by avoiding payment coupons). Once you pay off your note, we will issue your Warranty Deed along with other paperwork required by the County.
If it was cash transaction, we will also prepare the Deed and necessary paperwork to file at the County. One big plus in buying land from us is that we will pay all recording costs and The Land Nerd is approved for electronic filing which speeds things up a lot. Most deeds are recorded within 24 hours. This is a major advantage instead of waiting for 3-4 weeks to get a deed in the mail.
