Tips for Selling and Buying Vacant Land

Tips for Selling and Buying Vacant Land copy

Selling lots and land is very different from selling and buying residential houses. Although selling your home can be easy, selling land can be more difficult. This is why enlisting the help of a trusted Real Estate Brokerage is a good idea. A brokerage like Royal Canadian Realty has agents who are skilled and experienced in handling many different types of homes and properties and will know what to do to sell your land. 

Things to Know When Selling Land

There are a few things to keep in mind when you decide to sell a piece of vacant land. 

Selling land requires agents to use different sales skills. A home has many rooms that can appeal to people and can easily grab attention with photos. With a home, interested people can come to open houses, request photos, and visitors can physically walk through the house. The interested buyers can visualize themselves living in the home. 

Homebuyers tend to be a bit different than those interested in buying a vacant lot or land. The needs, wants, plans, and perspectives are naturally different than those looking at houses. Home-buyers are ready to move in and make the house theirs, whereas land-buyers usually are looking for land to fill a certain purpose or plan. They have specific needs that must be met before buying. 

Another thing to remember is the land market isn’t as active as the house market. There are just fewer buyers, but it still moves along quickly. Being patient during the land selling process is important. 

Tips for Selling Land

Here are some times about selling vacant land.

  1. Understand your buyer: what type of property does your potential buyer want? Does it need to be developed? Think like a potential buyer. What is the condition of the market, the location, and is it suitable to build a home or different project. 
  2. Have the land prepared: Make your land look good. Clean up your lot, cut the grass, and get rid of weeds and trash. Take some quality photos for marketing purposes. Photograph any natural features and impressive property views. Some people even plant flowers for a special touch. 
  3. Think twice about the price: Setting a land price can be extremely challenging. A high-rise developer often pays a higher price than a single-family home developer. You need to consider your needs and understand the land market. It’s a good idea to enlist the help of an experienced agent.
  4. Work with Professionals: This is where working with an agent from the Royal Canadian Realty will help immensely. A professional can use their skills and knowledge to help you understand the market, set the right price, and find the right buyer while navigating the challenges and processes that come your way.
