Finding Land

Hi everyone...

Where does one look to find land that is for sale? Without driving by it and seeing a sign that says its for sale, are there websites or anywhere to look to find land to own? If anyone knows, please inform me! Thanks everyone. :)

Loopnet is a good place to start looking for land or anything commercial. I'm not sure why I didn't post that earlier. Its a commercial agent's MLS. If you're a beginning investor, I wouldn't recommend speculative land investments. You can sit on land for years and paying taxes can add up. Now if you have a bunch of capital to work with and don't mind playing the waiting game then it might be a good idea. You need to be confident that the growth will continue, and of course you need to research and make sure you are buying it right and have allowed for long holding times.
