Our Acquisition Process

We seek land and properties  with residential development potential meeting our specific criteria: access and availability of Public Water and Sewer, adequate road frontage or access, proximity to services. We work with agents, wholesalers, and direct sellers; in addition to  real estate databases, local listings, and networking to identify suitable options.

Prior to Contracting we conduct cursory analysis of the property checking existing Zoning, Existing and  Future Land Use, Overlay z districts, and the general development patterns in the area. We review Available GIS information to determine access and availability of Public Water and Sewer, major ecological or physical constraints, and to assure adequate frontage or access. If a property Metes or exceeds our minimum thresholds, we proceed to contract.

When entering into contracts with sellers, our approach is centered on openness, honesty, equity and mutual benefit. We extend reasonable offers, that attempt to align with the market and the Sellers expectations while securing terms necessary to support successful outcomes. We prioritize transparent transactions and our commitment is to equitable dealings. While experience may set us apart, ensuring a positive and respectful negotiation process is paramount.

During the 90-120 day study period, we leverage our extensive experience to conduct a thorough analysis. We assess factors such as zoning, environmental impact, and infrastructure compatibility while aligning with builders who are interested in the project’s potential product. If we decide not to proceed, the sellers will receive our study findings, ensuring transparency and respect for their time and effort. Our approach focuses on informed decisions and respectful communication throughout the process.
