A land agent specifically handles vacant lots, while real estate agents handle land with structures built on them, depending on your needs. Establish a budget that takes taxes, commissions and fees into consideration before contacting an agency. Alerting an agent to your budget narrows down the search. If land that meets your budget is not immediately available, stay in contact with the agent to periodically search until something comes on the market.

The real estate section of the newspaper lists land for sale or local auctions. Auctions are the best place to find land in your price range. Inspect the land before purchasing it at an auction, as a precaution. Register at least a day before the auction to receive more information about the land.

At the auction, have personal identification, a blank check and cashiers check for any predetermined amount needed to bid. If you intend to finance the purchase, you need to bring a preapproved letter from a legitimate lender.
