Buying land in Vermont is a stable, long-term investment. Whether you are looking for a working farm, timber stand or an estate-sized lot to build your Vermont dream home, our experienced Vermont land specialists can guide your through the process.

While that special vista may speak to your heart, your head may wonder if the parcel you have your eye on is buildable, farmable, profitable or accessible. Turn to us to get the expertise, answers and confidence you need to make a land purchase that you are comfortable with; we provide information on the following to help you with your decision:

Aerial Views: By using a nice aerial view you can see approximate property lines, where the neighbors are located, contours of the land elevations, pond and other feature locations at the time of first interest.

Perc Testing: We can do a USDA soil survey of the land with information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. We develop a map to access soil data for the property, which indicates soil quality for certain conservation and engineering applications. This map will also indicate the degree of slope and soil types that will help you decide where to place a structure or septic system.

Boundary Lines: With the use of a hand GPS and a survey map, we can help locate the survey points and use colored flagging to indicate area. This will increase your confidence and understanding of property scope, so that you can carefully and precisely choose the best parcel of land and orientation of your home.

Trees and Logging: A timber cruise with a survey map or soil analysis and hand-written notes will give you a general idea of what kind of timber you will find on different sections of land.
