Do You Have Any Unrestricted Property For Sale?
Being in the country, the unrestricted property request comes up often. Experience has taught me not to just jump on the unrestricted thing! Here’s why!
When we go to look at unrestricted property and see something like this next door.....
the buyers change their minds real quick! That’s when we find out that....
Often times people from Houston are looking for a weekend get-away! What they really want is something that doesn’t have high homeowner association fees and someone telling them what color they have to paint their house.
Lake Livingston is really laid back... but NOT unrestricted. (Hallelujah!)
We do have unrestricted property. But keep in mind that YOU are not the only one that is unrestricted. SO is your neighbor! As long as you are okay with that.. let’s go!
So, the question goes back to the buyer.... “What are you planning to do on the property that would require it to be unrestricted?”
No, I am not being nosy... I just need to know what to look for.
Some EXAMPLES could be:
Highly Restricted - We will tell you what to do about EVERYTHING!
Restricted - We won’t tell you what color you have to paint your house but you can only have X number of dogs and NO broken down vehicles in the yard!
Somewhat Restricted - You can live in an RV but only for 6 months, after that you have to remove it for a week before you can bring it back. REALLY?
Barely Restricted - It’s okay for you to live in your RV.
Not Restricted - Yes, you too can have freaky, weird, voodoo-looking people in your yard! ♫ It’s your thing! Do what you want to do! ♪
Homeowner association fees, unless you are in a golf course community, typically do not go over $300.00 per YEAR per lot. That is LESS than a dollar a day. So you may want at least SOME restrictions!
Don’t be afraid to tell your agent what you want to do with the property. IF you have signed a Buyers Representation Agreement with that agent, your information is confidential! That agent will narrow down the list to only the properties that will work for your special needs -- and save you lots of time and worry!
