If you own land in Northern VA, and you’re wondering “how do I 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.
The Most Common Ways To Sell Vacant Land Yourself…
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 there are only a few real estate agents who are truly “experts” in buying and selling land.
Another choice is for sellers to sell their land themselves. You do the same work as the agent and are able to save the commission that you’d have to pay, 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.
Option #2: Sell Your Land To Us – We’re Cash Land Buyers
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 The LandBrokers). Selling this way allows you to quickly dispose of your land and put money in your pocket.
Sellers view this 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 showing the land to many prospective buyers.
- It costs less – a Realtor will charge higher commissions while most land buying companies don’t charge as much.
- 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.
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.
