In a new book published by Texas A&M University Press, Charles Gilliland outlines the process of buying rural land. Gilliland, a clinical professor of finance, research economist, and Helen and O. N. Mitchell Fellow at Mays Business School’s Real Estate Center, demonstrates that buyers of all typesâ€”whether a farmer, rancher, sportsman, or nature enthusiastâ€”can and should arm themselves with knowledge about the land-buying process, potential problems involved, and the resources available to ensure a successful outcome.
In Buying Rural Land in Texas, Gilliland outlines the four phases of buying rural land: identifying what you want, locating a suitable property, valuing the property, and completing the transaction. Gilliland, who has spent his career as an economist, is able to offer personal insight and incorporate real life examples into the guide, taking readers step-by-step through the land-buying process. He also provides checklists, maps, professional tips, and information about how to tap additional sources of information and advice. After reading this book, potential land-buyers will feel confident and informed about the land-buying process.
