Wait! Before you buy that land, make sure you’ve done your homework. Here are five key questions to ask, and how to find the answers.

1) WHAT RESTRICTIONS AND/OR ZONING ORDINANCES APPLY TO THE PROPERTY?

They take this measurement by analyzing the amount of U-Haul trucks that leave and enter each state in the US (excluding Hawaii) each year.
