How To Sell Vacant Land
Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you have a few questions on how to sell vacant land direct to us. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: The market for land is sometimes slow and hard to measure in terms of “Market Value” due to many factors. Some of these factors are location- like how far from a large or medium city? is it in a floodplain? is it merely a dirt road or an easement that gives you access to the land? Are there restrictions to building? Are there neighbors with a front-yard junkyard nearby? and many more variable. All land, no matter how close it is to another parcel, has different value.
We are investors, in order to make a profit and stay in business, we simply cannot pay full retail prices, even if one could establish what ‘full retail’ might be for the parcel. That said, sometimes land sits on the market for months or even years before it sells, sometimes sellers get discouraged and decide to take it off the market due to lack of interest from buyers after a lot of effort and time spent trying to get it sold. We provide you with a clear path to cash in your bank account for the land we buy.
Fair market value on land is a moving target and with cheap rural lots getting any money for them can be a win! We close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part or pay agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your property sold fast… let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. We simply make you an offer that reflects our expectation of being able to market and sell the property for a decent profit after all the expense of buying, closing, marketing, payroll, talking to buyers and then having selling expenses on top of that.
Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my property?
A: Our process is very straightforward. We do our homework on the area and prices. We have intimate knowledge of the market in the areas in which we make purchases. Then we make you a firm offer and deliver that offer to you. All we require is a clean, clear title at closing.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: There are No fees and No commissions when you sell your property to us.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties for sale and hope that someone will buy them. They are paid a commission ranging from a fixed percentage or a set amount. This is shared with the real estate agent that finds the buyer. We are different because we simply buy your property direct to reduce the time and guesswork- AND WE DON’T CHARGE YOU A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF YOUR SALE PRICE FOR THE SERVICE.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely No Obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at the property and market. Sometimes we need to set up a call with you to find out a bit more and then make you an all-cash offer. From there, it’s your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your property to us. WE DO NOT SHARE, SELL, OR OTHERWISE SEND YOUR INFORMATION TO ANYONE ELSE.
