Buying land for your dream home is a significant investment for you and your family. Of course, it is best to consult real estate agents before you visit any property, and there are a few tips you should always keep in mind.

We agree the process is complex and challenging, but the professionals at Nixon Real Estate are here to guide you.

If you searched ‘buying land in the Texas Hill country,’ you must have learned that most people compromise on the location of their property. Real-estate investment is very profitable: you must conduct market research and consider the following points every time you plan to buy land.


Before you are serious about investing, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Is it more important for you to find land that is already developed, or do you want to invest in developing it?
  2. Do you want to be in a rural location with acreage and privacy?
  3. Do you want to live close to Fredericksburg, Harper, and Stonewall?

If you’re buying land to build a house, you’ll want to consider access to schools, your job, grocery shopping, and restaurants. On the other hand, if you wish to set up a business, do not buy land isolated from potential customers. Whatever land you’re looking for, the costs can add up quickly. Our team will help you make a sound decision and help you figure out which location would be best for your family and friends.

Utilities When Buying Land

It would be best to consider essential utilities: electricity, propane, and ground lines (for internet connection, television, and phones) or a satellite dish. Furthermore, water and sewage are vital. If your property is not close to sewage systems, you must install a septic system and a water well for house water. You will need septic and water well permits from the county or water district.

Access To Transport

Homeowners must always keep access to transport in mind. So first, determine your property’s proximity to schools, hospitals, and stores.  Nixon Real Estate ensures client satisfaction. Contact us today so our experts can assist you in finding the right place to build your dream home.
