Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Unity Land?
Are you a real estate agent?
Nope. We own all the properties we offer. No middlemen.
How does the purchase process work?
The purchase process is outrageously easy. When you find a property you love, click the “Buy Now” button on the property listing to make your down payment (and closing fee) with a credit or debit card. We will then draft a Land Agreement for you to review and sign. Once we receive the signed agreement, we set up your monthly installment payments using a web-based servicer.
If, on the other hand, you are buying the property with cash rather than installment payments, we collect the balance of your payment once we receive the signed Land Agreement and transfer the title to you via Warranty Deed right from our office. The process takes minutes.
Can I visit a property before I buy it?
Yes, by all means! We encourage our buyers to visit our properties (but we will not be able to accompany you, sorry). All property listings contain GPS coordinates. Just copy and paste those into Google Maps to pinpoint the property location. Enter your starting location to get directions to the property.
Has the property been surveyed?
For the most part, our properties were surveyed when the land was divided. We provide GPS coordinates for property corners. However, to find exact corner locations, you will probably need to hire a professional land surveyor.
Will we meet in person?
Probably not. The entire transaction is completed electronically using web-based services. Needless to say, we communicate by phone or video chat as much as necessary.
Are there additional fees?
We charge a $249 closing fee at the time of purchase. We also charge a $9 monthly processing fee for installment sales, as well as a monthly property tax payment (annual tax bill total/12).
How does your 90-day full money back guarantee work?
We encourage all new land owners to visit their property within the first 90 days of buying it to be sure they are satisfied. We offer a full refund, no questions asked, if you are dissatisfied with your new land investment for any reason.
What can I do on my property?
What kind of home can I build? Is long-term camping allowed? Can I have livestock? We defer to local government on questions of land use. We will provide contact information for local officials. We urge you to contact them directly to be sure you can use your land the way you please.
Does the property have utilities?
Most of our properties occupy remote, rural areas that are not served by utilities. Our buyers generally like it that way. Solar power has become quite affordable. It makes it possible to inhabit remote areas where you can have complete privacy. Water is generally obtained by well or cistern (in which case it is delivered by truck). Waste disposal is by septic tank.
