If you own land, and you’re wondering “how to sell my land myself”, you have a couple of choices. In this blog post you’ll read about what your choices are, and how to know which choice is best for you.
Here’s The Most Common Way To Sell…
The most common choice that land sellers have is to sell through a real estate agent. Agents will list your property and find buyers for it, and then negotiate on your behalf and help you with the paperwork.
Problem is, many property owners discover that there aren’t a lot of land buyers, and few real estate agents are truly “experts” in buying and selling land. In addition, if an agent is able to find a buyer, you will have to pay commissions to the agent, which can get quite expensive.
Another choice is for sellers to sell land themselves. You do the same work as the agent and are able to save the commission that you’d have to pay the agent, ultimately pocketing a little more cash than if you sold the traditional way.
But many of the same problems exist here too: Land sellers who choose to sell their land themselves soon find that there really aren’t a lot of vacant land buyers out there. The average person just doesn’t buy vacant land.
When I was trying to sell my first piece of vacant property years ago, I learned this lesson the hard way! The property just sat there for months and I had to waste a lot of time finding and following up with possible buyers. It was frustrating and just exhausting. I spent nearly a year building the kind of marketing machine required to sell the land, and I know the vast majority of landowners simply won’t invest that kind of time and energy.
My personal experience is one of the big reasons why I started Ocala Road Investments to help landowners sell their property quickly and get their cash without much hassle. Click here now to get in touch with us if you’d like to learn “how to sell my land myself.”
Here’s Another Option You Might Not Know About…
Here’s the third option – and the option that most people aren’t even aware of. Instead of listing your property (either through an agent or on your own) you can simply sell your property directly to a land-buying company (like what we do here at Ocala Road Investments). Selling this way allows you to quickly dispose of your land, put money in your pocket, and still avoid paying commissions and fees that you’d normally have to pay to an agent.
Sellers view this third option as a superior strategy because of the following reasons:
- It’s faster – a land buying company that buys land directly from a seller can know right away if the land is right for them, and a good land company can usually get the funding right away. There’s no listing and there’s no showing the land to many prospective buyers.
- It costs less – an agent will charge commissions but most land buying companies won’t charge anything.
- It’s far less work – listing your property can be a lot of work, even if an agent does it. But selling your vacant land directly to a land-buying company can give you a rapid close so you can walk away from the land when you want to.
Looking how to sell your land yourself? Look no further than a land buying company. Although few sellers are even aware that this option exists, they’re pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy it is to sell their land when they learn about it.
