What Do I Do Before Selling Residential Land?

1. Selling Residential Building Lots?

As the name suggests, residential land is a type of real estate that is meant to be used for private housing. Depending on the land size, a residential land can accommodate a single-family unit or multifamily homes. If you’re selling land, make it look like something that people actually want to buy. Get rid of the rusted cars, the junk in the yard, old toys from your kids who are now in college, fallen tree branches, and so forth.  Keep the grass in yards, pastures, food plots, and other open areas clipped and presentable. There’s a steady market for vacant lots.  You’ll also want to have any documentation ready.  Do you know where the deed to your property is? If not, find it. Scan it so it can be sent to others digitally.  Some buyers will insist upon knowing that you are the actual legal owner of the land. If you can provide documentation in the form or a deed or tax bill, it can help your buyer feel at ease before entering into a sale.

What Do I Do Before Selling Agricultural Land?

2.To prepare to sell this type of land, it’s always good to have some information ready for your real estate broker.  One of the first questions buyers are always going to ask with this type of land is about water shares.  They want to know how many water shares and if it is deliverable.  Usually, your real estate agent will certainly be able to obtain this information. A farm agent can prepare a brochure (and we do) and other marketing material to ensure that as soon as you are ready, you can go to the market. This will cut out several weeks’ preparation if you are trying to move the land quickly.  Preparing yourself, and your agent, can go a long way to getting the land sold quickly.  Having information on hand about the topography,  If the property has ponds, creeks or streams: make sure that some of the water can be seen from a distance. Also make sure that the potential buyers can walk to the water. If you have ponds it is best to keep them clipped and possibly “weedeat” around them.  If any of the property has trash or debris laying around, remove it as soon as possible. This includes junk and trash in barns and sheds on the property.

5.What is build to suit? A build to suit is a commercial building or space specifically constructed to the client’s needs – whether that’s an indoor trampoline park, home of a tech company or a simple update of space – this process focuses on one end user.  Due to the additional time and risk of a built-to-suit transaction, there are additional considerations that must be factored into the process.
