Buying a Boulder Property
Before you purchase Boulder CO property, be sure to do your research. You need to make sure that the land will be suitable for what you intend to use it for. The lot for instance, may be too hilly or damp to support a stable foundation. There are also zoning laws that determine what size and type of structure can be built on the property, so it's critical that you're informed before signing the purchase offer.
In addition to current ordinances, you must also find out what plans there are for future development in the area. Will a highway be built next door? What about a school or retail development? These plans may affect the land's value and salability in the future. Make sure that when considering a Boulder property that you ask for a natural hazard disclosure, and find out if any of the land is considered protected (and therefore not developable). It's also necessary to get a staked survey of the land to find out where its boundaries lie, and to get a warranty deed and title insurance.
