I received an email after the show asking about getting better at finding land. Keep in mind that PropertyRadar has advanced property types and how your local county tracks vacant residential land may vary. For instance, in Florida where Jeff invests, the county tracks residential lots to Advanced Type/Land/Residential Lot. Here in California, it may show under Advanced Type/Land/Miscellaneous Vacant Land.

Best bet is to find one of what you’re looking for within PropertyRadar and see how it’s being documented in public records locally.
