When to sell land yourself (FSBO)?

Selling land yourself is a good solution, if you have a medium to long time frame (typically 6 to 12+ months) to complete the sale. You should be familiar with the process and the current legal requirements. If you want to get top dollar for your property selling land yourself (FSBO) is the way to go.

To successfully sell vacant land yourself, you should check if the following applies to you:

  • You have a background in real estate
  • You are familiar with the local market the property is located in
  • You know the process for selling land
  • You have some knowledge in (online) marketing
  • You are ready to prepare the property for marketing (cleaning up, taking high quality photos, drone footage, etc.)
  • You are willing to and you have time to talk to lots of potential buyers
  • You know how to negotiate successfully
  • You know which type of deed is neccessary for your land and if you need an attorney to close the deal
Selling Land Tipp

Familiarize yourself with the applicable legal requirements. The legal requirements for selling land are different in each state and province. Consult an experienced real estate attorney or trusted real estate agent to find out what regulations apply to you.

When to sell land with an agent?

Selling land with the help of a real estate agent is the middleway between selling yourself and selling to a direct land buyer. It can be a good solution, if you have a medium time frame (couple of months) to complete the sale, and if you are willing to invest some time and money upfront to make this a successful sale.

One crucial tip! You should definitely look for an agent who specializes in selling land, as selling vacant land is fundamentally different from selling a house. Sellers often turn to us after choosing the wrong real estate agent and wasting a lot of time and nerves.
