Experience the true Old Florida lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of. The hustle bustle of everyday city life can really wear you down! Escape to a simpler time. Imagine owning 1.25 acres of private and quality property in the country, near the Kissimmee State Preserve in Okeechobee County, FL.
This 1.25 acre property is located in The Vikings/Praries area of Okeechobee County, conveniently located near many areas of Florida. It provides easy access to the Atlantic and Gulf beaches, with the Atlantic beaches located an hour away and the Gulf beaches situated approximately an hour and a half to the West. Access by a grass/dirt road directly in front of your lot. Power poles line the street in front of the lot offering inexpensive access to power hookup to your property. Add sewer or a well, and culverts for more of your modern conveniences, or bring your camper and ATVs up from South Florida for the weekend. As are many parcels in this area, this property is located in Flood Zone A, which according to the zoning department, means that there is a 1% chance or less of flooding per year.
The Viking Estates offers plenty of activities for everyone. The area is known for its hunting, fishing and ATVing, and is located just minutes away from the famous Lake Okeechobee – one of the best bass fishing lakes in the country, and Kissimmee Prairie State Preserve.
Most of the properties in this area are zoned as agricultural, meaning that you can build a house or a mobile home. However, the county has created size restrictions indicating that homes or mobiles must be 1,000 square feet or larger. Agricultural zoning means that these properties are able to support farm animals as well as separate structures, such as barns or garages. The Viking Estates does not have any HOA’s or POA’s, meaning that there are no additional monthly fees, rules or regulations on the properties in this area.
As with any investment, you should contact the County to double check the zoning information for the specific parcel that you are interested in, as there could be changes to the regulations and/or use permits.
Due to its close proximity to cities such as West Palm Beach, Fort Pierce and Sebring, the Viking Estates is also very popular with residents of Florida’s East Coast. These cities are between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours from the Estates by car, making this area an incredible weekend retreat opportunity.

How it Works:
Buy this property in 3 Simple Steps:
STEP 1 – Click “Send Purchase Information” to make your payment and doc fee payment.
STEP 2 – The closing documents will be sent to you thereafter to review and e-sign.
STEP 3 – We will create the new deed and record the property in your name!
What costs are included in my initial investment?
– Your initial investment consists of your document processing fee which covers all of the paperwork, legal documents and recording fees involved in completing a clean and legal land transference.
Why pay cash for the property rather than making monthly payments?
– Monthly payments are a great option for anyone who wants to start investing today, but does not have plans to use their land immediately. The main reason to pay cash is for the ability to get the land transferred into your name so that you can begin using it or building on it right away. Big discounts are also available for cash buyers!
When is my first monthly payment due?
– Your first monthly payment is due approximately 30 days from the time you sign the sale contract and loan documents and submit your initial investment (aka your closing date).
What can I build or put on the property?
– Most counties have a rule against wheels (mobile homes, RVs, etc), but not all. We recommend calling the county zoning department to be sure! There are a ton of great options for foundation homes you may not have considered: tiny homes on foundations (depending on the minimum home-size allowances), modular homes, etc.
In some cases, yurts are allowed as full-time residences, as long as they have been approved by an engineer to meet building codes.
