Where to Start

When selling a property, it is important to understand all the options available to you before making a decision.  This will make it easier to decide which is best for your situation.

Finding Buyers

There are significantly less buyers in the market for vacant land compared to residential and commercial real estate.  This is why these properties take longer and are more difficult to sell.  Depending on the location, vacant land can easily take 12-18 months to sell.  

What is my Property Worth?

It is often difficult to establish market value for vacant land because there are usually not enough similar properties on the market.  In addition, many real estate agents lack experience with vacant land and struggle to determine its actual value.  These are likely the two biggest reasons why land often takes longer to sell than other types of real estate.

Should I Hire a Realtor?
It is common for people to hire a Realtor to list, advertise, show, and hopefully sell their vacant land.  What often comes as a surprise is most real estate agents do not normally focus on land and some will not even take on land listings.  Agents know vacant land can be difficult to sell, which is why commissions are sometimes as high as 10%.

For Sale by Owner

Those who want to maximize profits and avoid paying 6-10% Realtor commissions will sometimes choose to list the property themselves.  When selling land FSBO, or For Sale By Owner, you as the owner take on all of the advertising, marketing, and showing the property.  This method works, and can offer some savings, but requires a significant amount of time and effort.  FSBO sellers quickly learn there are many “tire kickers” who just want to see the land but are not seriously looking to buy.
