Land For Sale BlogWhat's Hot in the Land for Sale Business

Thinking of selling your land?

Have you had a piece of land for quite some time and are now thinking of selling it? Not sure what it’s valued at? Clueless on how to go about listing it? We can help. Dig up all those old deeds, dust them off and start doing some research.

1) Where is the land located? Call the county and make sure there aren’t any weird liens or co-owners on the property you don’t know about. Order some maps if you don’t already have them. They usually cost a couple bucks.

2) Do you want to try and list the property yourself? If so, we can help. UnitedLandSales.com will be launching a “Sell your land” section very soon and for 1 extremely low cost, you can post as many properties for sale as you want on our website, utilizing our advanced land listing system and making your properties visible to thousands of land buyers that use our site exclusively.

3) Determine the asking price by doing some research on other properties for sale in the same area or similar, comparable to size, utilities, access…etc. Do not use your “Taxable Value” as the value of your land, as this is a value determined on what the county will charge you for tax purposes. This is NOT the market value of the land for sale.

4) In this current economic time, people are reluctant to dish out large amounts of cash up front, so it is wise to offer some type of owner financing on contract. This will increase your chance of making a sale dramatically.

We are here to help. If you have land for sale and want more information on our soon to be listing service, visit our “Contact Us” page and send us an email.
