Surprises Selling Sacramento Acreage In South County

Surprises selling Sacramento acreage in south county is a learning experience for many. Sometimes escrows open and close and no surprises, not because there aren’t any, but because sometimes people may not look deep enough.  In real estate looking almost always turns up something. The thing is there is almost always more to learn about a property to help the clients to not have unpleasant news later. Uncover all issues before you close escrow, not after.

When you go to the Sacramento county website and look at a land parcel there is a classification called unapproved parcel. When this shows up with a blue dot, call a surveyor. Then order a chain of title guarantee from a title company pulling all the deeds back to 1965. This will inform all if the original lot split was completed correctly.

There is something called a certificate of compliance. This can be obtained once all the deeds and paperwork are all put in order. After everything is in order then a property owner can apply for a permit to build a home.  The surveyor is involved the entire time which is so important as then a buyer really knows what red flags stand in front of them.
