Do you have vacant land that you want to sell? Then you’re probably searching right now for land buyers in Florida who can buy your raw land. While there are many people who want to buy real estate with a house already on site, you might be having a harder time finding someone to buy your empty land. The good news is: there are buyers out there. Keep reading this blog post for top tips for finding land buyers in Florida for your vacant land.
Tip #1. Know what your land is good for
There are many different kinds of land buyers in Florida. For example:
- You might encounter land buyers looking for a home lot with infrastructure on site or nearby because they intend to build a house for themselves.
- You might find land buyers who are looking for rural recreational acreage where they can camp or enjoy hunting and fishing on the weekends.
- You might meet land buyers who want to buy the property and hold it until a future point when it can be developed.
- You might talk to land buyers who want to buy acreage so they can eventually subdivide the property and sell off smaller parcels to builders and future homeowners.
Figure out what your land is good for, especially what it’s zoned for by the city or county, and use that to help you find the right land buyers in Florida for your property.
Tip #2. Skip the agent; sell directly to land buyers in Florida
A real estate agent may try to list your land for you but the reality is, land doesn’t sell the same way that a developed lot sells, and most agents focus on land that already has a house or improvements on it. Sometimes, landowners find that their land sits on the market for a very long time because there’s only so many serious buyers for raw, undeveloped land out there. If an agent hasn’t been able to sell your land, or if you’d prefer not to wait many months (sometimes years), and sell your land, you can sell your land directly to land buyers in Florida (like us at All Acres Land Company).
Tip #3. Take good pictures of your land
Land buyers in Florida may not always be able to travel to your land to view it in person, but they will want to see what it looks like and what opportunities exist in the surrounding area. So take many great pictures of the land, including pictures facing in each direction as well as pictures of the neighboring land. You can also consider hiring a local drone photographer through an online platform like droners.io. If there is development nearby, such as a growing urban area or even just a new road being built, take pictures of that so the buyer knows.
Tip #4. Consider accepting seller financing
Some land owners want all the money up-front because of a financial need. However, this is not always the case. If you want some money up-front but think you’ll benefit from some cash flow then consider financing the land buyers in Florida who buy from you. You’ll also potentially save some significant money in taxes by selling your land in monthly installments over time.
