advice on buying land
Hi, I write from Scotland UK, I am a scottish man and my son is considering to study with an american university. We are very close and I want to be able to support him while he is studying and getting on. I am looking for advice on buying land that I can build and live on, I would not need more than 1 acre, maybe less? My background is science and engineering and very able technically. Can anyone help with general advice on buying land for living on ? such things as is it worth buying land from county lien sales?, It look reasonably straight forward compared to UK but what are the major pitfalls? I would hope to be as self sufficient as one man and his son can be. He is happy to study in any state so we are flexible.
Thanks in advance
