Frequently Asked Questions

For general information on the buying process, please visit the Our Process section of our website.


I found a lot I am interested in, but it is marked "Reserved" or "Under Contract" on the website.  What should I do?


Contact us! We will be glad to place you on the waiting list for the lot or help you find a similar available lot that meets your needs.  Once a lot is reserved for purchase, the buyer has 3 days to submit the processing fee.  If the processing fee is not received, the lot is placed back on the market and will once again be available for purchase.  Additionally, once a lot is placed under contract, the buyer has 30 days to execute and return the contract.  If the contract is not returned in the allotted time, the lot will be placed back on the market and will once again be available for purchase.


Can I purchase multiple lots?  Will I have to pay more than one processing fee?


You may purchase more than one lot if additional lots are available, but a down payment will be required.  Please see below for the down payment requirements based on number of lots. You will not have to pay an additional processing fee if you are buying all lots at the same time and on the same contract (all buyers and information are the same for all lots).  The maximum amount of credit that can be offered to a customer indiviually or in combination with other buyers or entities is $100,000.










Are all available lots listed on your website?

How much are property taxes?  Are they included in my monthly payment?


Property taxes vary by lot and county.  Country Lots can provide you with the previous year's tax amount to give you an estimate of the the cost for your lot.  Taxes are not included in your monthly payment.  You will receive an annual bill from Country Lots for your property taxes and your first year will be pro-rated based on the date of your contract. Country Lots does not add a surcharge to the amount charged by the County.


Are the property lines marked?


When Country Lots, LLC purchases a property, a state registered surveying company is hired to mark all boundary lines to ensure our customers know what they are purchasing.  If a lot has been returned to Country Lots, and the boundary lines have become unclear, the lot will be re-marked before being put on the market.   Country Lots will be happy to recommend a surveyor if at any time a boundary line needs to be clarified or re-marked, however, all costs incurred will be at the buyer's expense.
