There are so many things to think about when buying real estate. Most of us get caught up in the common topics like location or financing, but we often don’t consider the property restrictions that come with real estate. These things aren’t required to be published and in a city with no zoning its easy to think you can do whatever you want. That’s only if you know the rule and where to find the information.
