Frequently Asked Questions
How does purchasing a property from your site work?
On cash purchases of properties which are purchased through our website, tell us how you want the deed titled, and the mailing address you will want for the deed and taxes. Once the property is paid in full, Kramer Properties will prepare, sign, and notarize the Deed to transfer ownership to you. We will then have it notarized and sent via certified mail to the county to be recorded. Once the county has recorded the deed a recorded copy will be sent to you. Certain states require an attorney or title company to close a real estate transaction. On property purchases which are being funded and closed on through title/escrow – we ask for Non-Refundable Earnest Money Deposit to stop listing the property, draft a Sale And Purchase Agreement, and initiate escrow. This process will take a little longer but will allow the buyer to safely escrow their funds while the title company or real estate attorney researches the property to make sure that we can, in fact, convey clear title and sell the property to you absent any liens or encumbrances. Similarly, the title company or real estate attorney will also be responsible for drafting the new deed and facilitating the transaction. Buyer will be responsible for the closing costs when a real estate attorney or title company is needed.
Are you a real estate agent?
No, we are not real estate agents. Real estate agent’s fees can range from 2% to 10% of the purchase price. We prefer to eliminate the middleman. We market land for a quick sale excluding their fees to get the end user the best price.
Can you meet me at the property to "show" it to me?
We are located in Charleston, South Carolina and buy and sell land all over the United States. Unfortunately, I cannot “show” property. You are welcome to visit any of my properties at any time.

Can I visit the property before I buy it?

How much are property taxes?
