Purchasing Acreage In Clackamas County
Buying a home on acreage or purchasing bare land with the intent to build offers a number of unique opportunities and challenges. Unlike homes in subdivisions, homes on acreage often have private wells, septic systems, water or irrigation rights and other appurtenances that each require special attention. Furthermore, one needs to be clear about the intended use for the land by checking on flood plain information, county zoning, easement and boundary issues in addition to the potential availability of necessary services such as a rural fire district, phone and electricity service.
