Purchasing land is easier than purchasing a house, but if you have no experience with either, I recommend finding a good real estate agent to help you with the process. The individual will help you with every step of the way. You want to make sure not to get into title issues, mineral rights, or the inability to build due to certain rules for properties that are next to the river. The agent only gets paid if you make a transaction, and it comes out of the funds for the sale (not in addition to price). All in all, it is a good time to buy. Good luck!!
