Steve and Jill recently had an interesting podcast topic discussing physical and legal access. I loved the topic but I think they really cut the legal access part short as I was curious about this. Physical access is obvious, cant get to the property then less useful.
In nevada, much of the land is physically accessible via dirt roads or slightly offroad. Legal access is hard to find however. I have a few of these parcels and have passed on others just because worried about selling them. Legal Access to me has been a roadblock in selling as the question is often asked by buyers. I also see the issue being that you need a permit from the county to do anything like drilling a well, building house, septic, even parking an RV for more than 30 days. They require legal access (either by easement or county road) for these things. This limits the usefulness of the property to mostly recreation from what I can tell. Anyone sell land in Nevada without legal access regulary? I guess the point of my post is that I think legal access might be a bigger issue than it sounded on the podcast, or maybe I am overthinking this but it definitely downgrades the property.
