Preview Florida Lots for Sale with Google Street View

Google MapsWhat if you could view Florida land investments for sale and “walk the neighborhood” without leaving your home? Well you can, using Google Street View!

How Does Google Collect Street View Images?

Google uses a fleet of cars that travel throughout Florida, the United States, and around the world.  Each car has one computer and a camera mounted on top.  Each camera has 15 lenses that take 360 degrees of photos.

How Do You Use Street View?

Open up Google Maps and search for a location that interests you.  The location can be an address, an intersection or just a street, city and state.  If the land itself does not have an advertised address, try to get the address of the house next door or the house across the street and enter that.

Click and drag the orange Pegman to the place you want to see.  To “walk down the street”, click on the white arrows overlaid on the street or use the up and down arrows on your keyboard.  Rotate the view to see 360 degrees using the wheel in the upper left corner.  You can play around with the Street View by clicking here.

Who is Pegman?

Pegman is one of my most valued staff members here at Gratia Group.  Using Google Street View, it’s like we send Pegman out to the parcel with a camera, direct his every move remotely, and he beams photos back to us.

How Can Land Buyers and Sellers Benefit From Using Street View?

You can research all kinds of things!

  • Slope and terrain (Is the parcel steeply sloped? Or is the terrain rolling or flat?)
  • Grading (Has a flat pad or driveway been graded on the parcel?)
  • Structures (Are there any outbuildings or other structures on the parcel?)
  • Utilities (Are there electric or telephone poles in the street?)
  • Water (Is there a fire hydrant at a street corner indicating availability of district water? Or is a water tank or well house visible on the land?)
  • Signs (Is there an old real estate sign or “for sale by owner” sign on the parcel indicating the parcel has been on the market awhile? Are there for sale signs on competing parcels nearby?)
  • Homes (Are there quality homes nearby or is it a rough looking neighborhood?)
  • Street (Is it paved or unpaved?)
  • Debris (Is there junk on the parcel? Is the neighbor’s property an eyesore?)
  • View (Does it look like there may be a good view from the land?)
  • Fenced (Is it fully or partially fenced? What kind of fencing is it?)
  • Cars (Are the cars parked on the street nice or old junkers?)

To learn more about how to view lots for sale in Florida through Google street view, contact an expert member of the Gratia Group team at (239) 333-2221.

What is a Plat Map?

Plat MapDuring your research into a parcel of investment land for sale you have probably run across the term “plat” associated with it.  Plat is a term for a survey of a piece of land to identify boundaries, easements, flood zones, roadway, and access rights of way.  It is the legal description of a specific piece of real property and is required if land is to subdivided for building homes, creating parks, and setting aside rights of way.  Any change to the plat creates a replat which is still a plat.

This makes it sound like every piece of land is platted but that isn’t the case.  Platting only occurs in subdivided land and finding out if your property is platted is pretty simple.  If the deed describes the land by lot numbers within a subdivision, it has been platted.  If the land is described using metes and bounds, it has not been platted nor subdivided.

When you are purchasing property the title company will often include a plat map of the subdivision and parcel with the preliminary title paperwork.  This is very important to read and keep for future development on that property and to learn exactly where easements and other set asides are placed to eliminate any future headaches and extra work if the municipality comes in with a new roadway or utilities.

The plat map provides you with a tract number and probably the name of the subdivision itself if the builder has given one.  The lot numbers for each parcel in the subdivision will be shown along with the approximate lot dimensions.  The plat map shows you the shape of the parcel, an especially good piece of information if it is irregular.  Pie shaped and many sided parcels may have been carved out depending on the shape of the original investment real estate.  The plat map gives approximate dimensions, great to know for sellers and buyers.  The plat map also includes the builder’s lot number and a parcel number assigned by the county assessor’s office.

The definition of a plat pretty much tells you why plats are used.  The term is a way to describe land in a way commonly used across not only the real estate and building industry, but also for legal purposes. Most states and local jurisdictions require subdivided lots to be platted prior to building or sale.  As you may have guessed, platting has fees associated with it.

Understanding plats is one of the most basic requirements of dealing in real estate.  The plat tells you exactly what you are buying, what you have to sell, and what to take into account while planning the development of that lot.  To learn more about plat maps give Gratia Group a call at (239) 333-2221.
