Should You Sell Your Land: Part 1

Should You Sell Your Land. That IS a Big Question!

Landowners frequently ask themselves whether they should sell their land.  There are several factors and financial considerations that need to be considered to determine if you should sell your land or not sell your land.  Here are two things to consider when deciding to sell:

1.  How did you acquire the land?  Did you buy it for investment?    Did you buy it to build a home or cabin?  Did you inherit the land?

If the reason you purchased the land is no longer important, then it might be a good reason to sell.  For instance, if you’ve decided not to build on the land, do you really want to continue owning it? Or if you need to diversify your investments and have too much real estate in your portfolio then you may decide to sell your land.  If you inherited the land, you may be holding on to the land because in your mind, it may disappoint your loved ones who are now deceased.  In the interactions I have had with landowners, this is usually not the case.  The owners of the land who pass it along to you usually want you to do what you want with the land once inherited.   If they want you to hold on to the land, they will usually specify that in their will.

2.  Do you have a sentimental attachment to the land.  Is this the old family homeplace?  Did you bag your first turkey on this property?  Did you spend your summers on the land?

Can you really afford or justify holding onto the land for sentimental reasons?  It’s important to remember that sentimental attachment does not make the property more valuable for a potential buyer.  While I respect sentimenntal attachment to land, at the end of the day, it really will not affect what a buyer will pay.  As I said above, if the land was passed along to you for you to keep the land/hold onto the land, this is usually specified in the will.

These are just two of the points to consider when deciding to sell your land.  Please watch for upcoming posts on this same topic.

If you have any questions or comments about this please add your comments or contact us to discuss further.

Should You Sell Your Land: Part 2

Should You Sell Your Land for Cash?

In our last post we discussed a couple of things to consider when trying to decide whether or not to sell your land.  In this post, we are going to go into the big elephant in the room…the money!

1.  Cost of owning the land.  Owning land is not without costs.  If you have a mortgage on the property, then obviously there is the cost of making principal and interest payments.   If you don’t have enough income coming in  from the land then these payments have to be made from other funds.

2. Property taxes.  Aargghh! Property taxes  are often forgotten when it comes to holding onto land and can be a big cost of ownership.  Depending on the location and the zoning, property taxes can cost as much as 2 percent of the property’s value.  Taxes are a sunk cost and do not add value to the land.

The ongoing cost of property taxes can be burdensome and may help spur you in your decision to sell your land.

3. Your financial situation.  Do you need money now or sometime in the near future?   Remember…land is not a liquid investment.  You can’t just snap your fingers and produce cash from your land today.  Property can sometimes be difficult to convert to cash in a timely manner (not always but it CAN be difficult and can take a long time).  If you are in need of cash, you may be better off converting your land investment into something that is easier to get your hands on–such as stocks, bonds, money market funds, etc.

If you need money now, you should consider a cash sale.  If you don’t need all the money now, you could  offer to provide some owner financing to a buyer–thus providing you with a steady stream of income.

If you are tired of the costs of owning your land and you need to sell to raise cash, please contact us at www.webuylandtimber.com and we can help you.

Want to Sell Your Land in a Down Market? Follow These 3 Easy Steps

How many of these signs have you seen lately??

In a down market you have to be creative and flexible in order to sell your land quickly.  Here are 3 ideas to consider:

1.  Offer no downpayment financing.  In the current regulatory environment, many buyers are unable to obtain bank financing and may have limited funds for a downpayment.  In most cases they can afford the monthly payments.  In those cases, sellers can offer no downpayment or low downpayment financing.  Sellers can charge an above-market interest rate and enjoy the steady stream of income without the ongoing costs of ownership.

2.  For sale by owner. Sometimes it makes sense for the landowner to market the property by contacting potential buyers directly.  Talk to the neighboring property owners to see if they have interest in your land or if they know people who are looking to buy land.  Often, the neighbors have a vested interest in knowing who is going to buy adjacent land.  Also, contact builders and developers–many times they are in the market for future development land.

3.  Pay higher commission.  In a down market it often makes sense to list the property with a Realtor who specializes in land sales.   To get quick results, be prepared to offer an above-market commission.  This will induce the agent to devote additional time and resources to selling your land.

3 Quick Strategies to Prepare your Land for Sale

A clean, great looking piece of land is easy to sell!

So…you want to sell your land?  There are three things to do in order to prepare your land for quicker sale include:

1.  Clean up your land.  Help buyers see the potential in a property by cleaning it up.  Things such as burning or clearing piles of brush; removing old fences; regrading any driveways or roads into the property.  Most buyers don’t have a lot of imagination.  Make it easy for them to see the property in it’s best light.

2.  Mark the boundaries.  Most people want to know what they are buying when they are looking at a property.  Mark the corners and show the property lines so the buyers can see what they are getting.  If you don’t have the time to do this yourself, then hire a surveyor.  The time and effort will be well spent.

3.  Know your property.  Buyers will ask you many questions about your property so be knowledgable about it.  You need to know the answers to questions about zoning, the location of nearest utilities such as power, how deep are drilling wells in your area,  location of nearest store.

Following these strategies will make your land more attractive and help bring you quicker offers.

3 Quick Strategies to Make Your Land Easier to Sell

Land Sold!

Land Sold!

If you really want to sell your land, here are 3 quick strategies to make it easier to sell your land:

1.  Pricing your land correctly.  You need to compare the prices of similar properties in your local market to get a good understanding of how much your land is worth to a potential buyer.  Sites like Realtor.com and LandWatch.com can help get you started on a bit of research about the prices of similar properties.

2.  Price your land under the market.  In other words, set the price for your land below the price of recent sales in your market.  Buyers are always looking for a deal and if they perceive that your property is priced below similar properties, they are more likely to act quickly.

3.  Offer owner financing.  Due to the current banking climate, potential buyers are having a difficult time obtaining financing from banks.  To get more potential buyers and to quickly sell your land, offer financing for part of the sales price.
