Lots and Land

If you're looking to purchase a lot or acreage in Crossville or Cumberland County you'll have many choices to build that "Dream Home". Large tracts, small name it. But before you make that decision there are a few things you need to know.

Some of the most frequently asked questions I have from buyers are:

Is the property restricted? In some cases....yes. Many of the developments with smaller lots do have restrictions. Some are more restrictive than others.

Can I have a garden? In most cases.....yes. Unless the covenants for the subdivision prohibit it.

Some buyers ask: Can I raise animals? Again the answer is yes but normally on larger tracts within the County but not within the City Limits. Those subdivisions limit animals to the domestic kind only (dogs, cats, etc).

Make certain you ask your agent for a copy of the Covenants and Restrictions for the property before you buy.

If you're looking to buy a lot in an established community you'll find the prices may start at around $5000 for interior lots to upwards of $150,000 for something on a lake. Most all areas have Public Water and some areas are on a Public Sewer. If you find a lot that does not have a Public Sewer System MAKE SURE that the owner of the lot has had a soil test done and that it will accommodate a "Conventional Sub Surface Septic System" for the number of bedrooms that you plan on having in your new home.

Some of the more popular choices for established developments would be Fairfield Glade or Lake Tansi. These are both Recreational Developments with restrictions that differ quite a bit. Again, ask your agent for a copy of the restrictions to determine which lifestyle is right for you.

If you choose to buy a larger tract without restrictions there are a couple of things to keep in mind. You'll still need a soil test done but with more acreage you'll have the opportunity to be more flexible with the placement of your home. Also, if there is not a current survey you may want to have one done before you purchase. This cost is normally absorbed by the buyer and the cost can be anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars, for a smaller parcel, to several hundred depending on the acreage you're buying.

No matter what your interests are there are properties that will satisfy your need for hunting, camping, fishing, boating, hiking, farming and much more.
