My husband and I have discussed purchasing land first. We're struggling with whether or not to buy an RV to place on that land as we do a lot of traveling. (we have one child, and grandparents are a three hour drive - and have no place for us to stay while we are there.)

Would buying a used RV before a house be a wise move or just postpone the house further? Thanks. :)

Christina, what a great idea! This would lock in your land cost, give you a place to stay while visiting, and a place to stay while building.That's the kind of ingenuity that makes for a great owner/builder.

I'm considering buy land in a foreign country on the cheap. Now I just need to learn a new language.

Land is good... Book is good... I'm back!

Another reason to buy the land first is that the lay of the land will determine your house plan. Which way is South? Is there a slope to the land? Anything you don't want to look at every day? Is there a view you DO want to look at?
Love your site!

Throw my name in again please.

Top of the list hasn't worked, neither has the bottom, so lets try the middle!

Last year, I went to view some lots of land. They were absolutely beautiful, and the location was good. It's just unfortunate that I didn't have the capital at the time. I guess I'll try again soon since things are a little better with me now.

I playing it (so I don't have to) buy the book.

This time it shall be mine.

Mira, there are lenders who will loan $ on just the land (yes, even in today's "tightened mortgage market). As Will Rogers said, "Buy land, they ain't making anymore of it". (for those of you too young or adverse to history, you can google Will Rogers)
