One of the common problems I encountered was the fact that it was really hard to locate some of these vacant land properties.<br /> <br /> If you're a land investor, you probably know what I'm talking about because it is VERY common for vacant land properties to exist without a physical mailing address.<br /> <br /> No street name. No address number. Nothing.<br /> <br /> So where did this leave me? If I couldn't plug a street address into a mapping service like Google Maps - how was I supposed to find where the property was located? This was a serious obstacle because if I didn't know where a property was located, what it looked like, the shape of the parcel, the size of the property or what it's surroundings are - how was I supposed to know what it was worth and make an offer??<br /> <br /> I eventually learned that there was always an answer on where a property is located. It was just a matter of whether I knew how to find it.<br /> <br /> The vast majority of counties in the U.S. have what's called a Geographic Information System (GIS). These systems usually aren't user-friendly to work with, but if you care enough to go through the trouble of learning how it works - it can be a MAJOR help.<br /> <br /> This information tends to be quite reliable and will give you data like:<br /> <br /> - Property Sizes<br /> - Property Dimensions<br /> - Property Ownership<br /> - Precise Property Locations<br /> - Property Assessed Values<br /> - Etc...<br /> <br /> Each county's system is a little bit different and it takes some time to figure each one out - but it is absolutely worth the trouble.
