The Landman: Bob Atkinson
Bob Atkinson has seen all the ups and downs in the Triangle area market since 1974 when he and his family moved from Raleigh to Apex. In his years of work in real estate he has developed a teaching approach which is evident in his constantly changing website www.learnaboutland.com. Unlike many real estate practicioners, he has invested in property and physically worked to improve land and stay in good physical condition. Bob is excited about the future in the Apex and surrounding areas with the new 540 Western Wake Expressway and new regional Wastewater System projects are now operational and promoting major growth of all kinds.

Land!
There are many factors involved in deciding whether or not to invest in a particular piece of land. Numerous free resources are available online no matter where you live. Municipalities have planning departments with very robust GIS (Geographical Information & Mapping Systems) as well as maps for zoning, land use, utilities, transportation, watershed areas, & more. Atkinson Properties Group recommends putting in the time to research before investing. Check out the Landman's current RTP featured properties or learn more here.

Timing Is Vital
The one thing that I have heard over my whole career is — "I wish I had bought land 10 years ago." There has never been a bad time to buy including the past 5-10 years. If a normal person will look at land as a retirement vehicle just like their employer's plan or their 401k, the end result can be wonderful. When you call Bob you will get sound advice based upon years of real experience (good and bad). THe important question though is HOW.



Research!
In this site you can follow most of the underlined links to valueable information provided by planning and engineering departments in area towns and counties. Most municipalities provide maps of existing as well as planned futre changes for roads and infrastructure. As an example the The town of Apex, N.C. provides all kinds of mapping and planning at apexnc.org. At Atkinson Properties we like educated and well informed clients so any way we can help you learn all you wish is our goal. A lot of our clients understand GIS but usually appreciate our opinions and suggestions concerning soil conditions and topography.
