How to "Sell My Land Fast"

Brylle Roquero

The typical time that it will take to sell land varies depending on different factors such as the location of the property, zoning, pricing, and many others. Moreover, selling raw land is way harder than selling a house since a vacant property appeals less to buyers if compared with a house and lot. The work and money that is needed to build a home are sometimes so tremendous that most people do not have the time and resources to do it. So if you are someone who plans to sell your raw land, you have to know that it will be a major endeavor to pull off. But, it can be done as long as you know the right things that you need to do in order to sell your property. This article will help you do just that.

Pricing is Key

When it comes to selling raw land, the price plays a very important role.  Most people who buy land have to make the purchase in cash, without any assistance from the bank (land purchases are very hard to get financing from banks). These potential buyers have probably saved money in order to buy their first real estate investment and they will be very careful in making sure that their hard-earned dollars will not be put to waste.

Pricing your land at a very competitive level will make sure that anyone who will come across your listing will become interested. Most people will see the price of your listing first before they even read your description so it is very vital that you make that information as appealing as possible.

Make sure that you do your research and try to look for similar kinds of properties to yours that are being offered in the market currently. Look at their pricing and see if you can match them or even put yours at a lower rate. Once you had your pricing taken care of, you will definitely see more leads coming if you do not have them before.

Provide Complete Information

When doing a land listing on any online or offline platform, always make sure that you provide complete information. The rule of thumb is that you should provide all the necessary information as possible so that from the listing itself, you will already be able to screen your prospective buyers. By giving complete info, you will be assured that only those buyers who have a high chance of buying your property will send you a message asking if your listing is still available.

Some of the most important pieces of information that you should include in listing your land are the following:

  • Title of your listing - Make your listing title as appealing and informative as possible, for example, “4-Acres of Property with Amazing Mountain Views for Sale” – this one sounds so much better because you are giving your prospective buyers more pieces of information about your property that should make them want to know more about it.
  • Price of your listing - Be sure to include the exact price of your land so buyers can see it immediately.
  • Short description - Make your listing description as brief but as informative as possible. Be sure to include all the great advantages your property has, for example, nearby tourist attractions, or easy access to the town center.
  • Zoning - You may check with your county on the zoning of your property if you do not have the information yet. Including your property zoning is important so your buyers will have an idea of what they can and cannot do on your property.
  • Access - Provide information if you have legal access or any type of alternative.
  • Utility connections - Include power, water, cable, and internet connectivity.

Publish Your Listing Online

Publishing your land for sale online is arguably the most effective way you can be able to reach as many people as possible. Nowadays, people are always on their devices and by bringing anything that you are offering for sale through the internet, you will be able to connect with more people. Of course, one should not totally remove the traditional methods of marketing, such as a “For Sale” sign on the actual premises, but digital marketing is equally important.

There are a lot of websites and platforms that you can sign up for in order to post your land for sale. Some of the most popular are the following:

  1. Craigslist
  2. Zillow
  3. Facebook Marketplace
  4. MLS

Be sure to do a quick research first before you sign up for any of these platforms. They are very easy to navigate and you should be able to post your land within a few minutes.

If you can, do your post on all the platforms and do not focus on only one. By doing this, you will be able to reach all people who might be using only one of these websites. Lastly, when you do your listing, be sure to include complete information and the latest images of your vacant land.

Sell to Land Boss

If you find all the above processes very tedious to do, we fully understand. Based on our years of experience, selling land is not an easy thing to accomplish. That is why we are happy to tell you that you have one more option in selling your raw land: sell directly to land companies (like us here at Land Boss).

Selling to land companies means that you will no longer be doing the legwork in finding ways to sell your land. By providing us with all the needed information, we can be able to evaluate your property and give you a cash offer (yes, you heard it correctly, we can buy your land in cash) in as fast as seven days.

But we have to be upfront, our offer will be slightly lower than the market price of your property. Since we are operating as a business, we have to cover the cost that we will spend on marketing, administration, and closing the sale when we find a buyer for your property. This process can typically take up to years so it is only fair that we buy land at a slightly lower price so we can recoup our cost easily.

If this is something you are interested in, send us a message today and we will get back to you with an offer as soon as we can!
