Finding your perfect North Carolina mountain lot or land is easier than you think…if you know where and how to look.
Here’s a quick guide about finding your mountain land:
Know where to look
The first step is to know where to look. Many listing sites have a category for “Lots & Land Listings” or something similar. If you Google: “NC mountain land for sale” you may find what you’re looking for, but depending on where you live, what you’ve searched in the past, and your cookie settings, you may not get the results you’re looking for.
As you consider your NC mountain land and begin your search, here are a few tips you can follow:
1. Make a list of realtors and land options
Start by making a list of all the realtors in your area who sell North Carolina mountain lots and land. This list will help you with your search.
2. Make a list of favorite lots
Keep a running list of URLs of properties you like. You can also save the URL of the search on the website so it’s easy to look over new results. More the better! Remember, you’re in the brainstorming phase. It’s better to have too many mountain land options to choose from than too few.
3. Scratch off the list as you go
As properties are claimed or you no longer think it’s a good fit, cross it off the list. A few lots crossed off a list of 20 feels a lot better than a few crossed off a list of five — it’s better to have multiple options at the beginning of your search!
Know how much you want to spend
As you add to your list, keep price-point in mind. Many mountain lots for sale can cost anywhere from $4,000 for a small area of land to over $5 million for a large mountain area.
Inquire about the mountain land for sale
Sometimes listings don’t tell the whole story. Inquiring about the land will help you know more about it. Send a message to the realtor and ask for more information.
Look at a map
Looking at a map helps determine exactly where the land is located. You’ll be able to see really quickly if the surveyed area is on a mountain or if it overlooks a mountain. These are two very different things!
Ask to tour the mountain land
Once you find an area you want to tour, ask to see it in person. You may be able to drive to see it by yourself — if the realtor gives permission.
