Important things to Know When Buying Northern Arizona Land?

  •  Be sure to hire a land specialist to help you with your purchase.
  •  Elevation is the key to climate, vegetation, and type of view.
  •  Well water is pretty readily available from Kingman to the edge of Mohave County west of Seligman but past the Aquarius Mountains on the border of Mohave and Yavapai Counties heading east it is uncertain whether or not you may find water if you drill.  Some communities have drilled extremely deep wells, 2,000 plus feet deep ($150K+) and function on a shared well agreement where you can “haul water”.  Other parcels rely on water delivery because their community may not have water or may not have made arrangements for shared water service.
  •  Much of the Rural Zoning is AR36 (Agricultural/Rural with minimum sized parcels of 36 acres).  Some areas allow properties to be split and some don’t.
