There are a number of reasons why it can be difficult to sell land on your own.
The market for land can be very slow and sales periods for land can often take months or years. It is very difficult to find bank financing for land which means you’ll typically have to find cash buyers for land which can be difficult. Many land properties are marketed with owner financing meaning they owners have to deal with the hassle of collecting payments for years at a time, only receiving very little each month.
If you decide to choose to list your property with a broker you may be disappointed to find that many brokers don't take the time or put in the effort necessary to your sell your land due to the lower commissions being offered for land sales. Many brokers are more focussed on selling homes which offer a much larger commission and in many cases their land listings get put on the back burner. This is especially the case in areas where there is only a small local market for land and a large volume of inventory. You may also find that some brokers charge a huge percentage for commission too make up for the relatively low sales price of land. In some cases broker commission percentages can be as high as 35% of the sales price.
Yes, but we cover all the basic costs involved in selling your property. You will never have to pay anything out of pocket to sell you land to us.
Here is a list of some of the costs we cover:
- Escrow Fees
- Title and Abstracting Fees
- Recording Fees
- Transfer Taxes
- Notary Fees
We will have to research each situation individually, depending on the state and county where the land is located and the circumstances involved we may be able to quiet the title, file probate, or explore options to clear the title. We are willing to work with you and can usually find a solution to most title issues.
In some cases depending on the amount of the taxes, we will cover those expenses. Otherwise back taxes and dues will be subtracted from the agreed upon purchase price or offer you received. Each situation is different and we evaluate the amount of back dues and taxes on a case by case basis, in many cases it's a non-issue.
Not a problem, we will be preparing a new deed for the purchase of your property and don’t require you to provide a copy of you deed.
