Looking for raw land? Undeveloped land, often called raw land, is a vacant area without any public utilities, buildings, or even driveways. Often, undeveloped land is in rural areas found off county roads and could be the place to build your forever home.

Nebraska is the 16th largest state in the United States with a total land area of more than 76,000 square miles. However, it lies in 37th in terms of population, with less than 2 million people currently calling the Cornhusker State home. That means, of course, that there is a large amount of raw land in the state, perfect for prospective buyers looking to move to or invest in land in Nebraska.

Certainly, buying raw land in Nebraska can be an excellent investment. In this blog post, your trusted team at Nebraska Realty Land Division will highlight what you need to know about buying raw land in the state. Let's get started.

Location Is an Important Consideration

Location is always of the utmost importance when buying land, whether you are planning to build on it, farm it, or for any other reason. The location is the one thing that you are unable to change so take your time to find the most advantageous area for your plans.

Does the local area fit the bill in terms of your needs and preferences? Does it have the necessary amenities, road network, views, etc? Take time to consider these first and foremost.

Consider Zoning Restrictions

Zoning refers to regulations that allow local government to regular which areas may have real or land used for specific purposes. Examples of zoning classifications include agricultural, residential hotel, industrial, commercial, etc.

It's easy to find the zoning restrictions that exist in the area you are considering buying raw law, by checking at the local zoning office. It's also important to understand any future plans the local government may have for a particular area, such as if there are plans to build a highway that bisects the land.

Consider the Additional Costs

Buying raw land is an investment of time and money. The exact plans you have for the land will determine the amount of money needed to realize your plans.

When establishing your budget, don't simply factor in the purchase price of the raw land (unless you are planning to establish a meadow!) If you are planning to build one or more properties on the land, for example, it's critical that you are aware of the expenses associated with this aspect of your project.
