I own 10 acres with a friend and 5 acres with my family. I own it outright nothing is on it. Can I use it? I would like to purchase something in BK.

Hi Elizabeth,
Loans of that sort are "out of the box" for most "regular" lenders. As such the lenders that will entertain are private money/commercial.
The rates for these loans are normally very high and the terms are not so favorable.
If you see yourself paying the loan off in 1-2 years maybe the idea is worth considering. Otherwise i would look at other sources.
Hope this helps,
