How Can you Sell Land Online?

Many people don’t know that you can easily sell land online. The process is simple. It just takes a bit of knowledge to get started and to learn how to professionally present your land for sale.

Why Should you Sell your Lane Online?

Because there are so many online platforms featuring land for sale, your property will likely be seen by many more potential buyers than would normally be possible with an offline sale.

You may literally get thousands of views of your land for sale in a single day!  Of course, this is likely to lead to much more quality offers because you will have more competing buyers for your land.

To sell your land quickly and still get the best price, there are many online resources to help you post your property, price it accurately and showcase it to sell. 

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  • Photographs

These will attract buyers’ attention more than anything else. You need to take plenty of photos of the land and any improvements. This means doing repairs, mowing the lawn, planting flowers, cutting back trees and shrubs, and making sure everything is neat and visually appealing.

Consider the unique aspects of your property and use that to create a strong selling point. For example, if your property is surrounded by beautiful hills or has a forest pathway leading from it, be sure to include those photographs, too.

Use natural light to make your property look as attractive as possible. Take photos at different times of the day. For example, a photo of a cactus outlined against the setting sun at dusk would look stunning.

Especially for larger pieces of land, consider buying or renting a drone to take photos from above and create virtual tours.

  • Give property dimensions
  • Offer a physical walkthrough. If you’re far from your property, be prepared to either travel to show it or work with a local land agent to show the property to you.
  • Take the time to price your land. Research the local market and if necessary, get professional advice to help you determine what your land for sale is truly worth in the current local market.
  • Use keywords in your listing to set your land for sale apart from others. This could include unique identifiers, such as secluded, private road, mountain retreat at 6,000 feet, fruit orchard, 100 year-old-property, original Victorian home,  includes 10 acres, tennis courts, stables, and similar.  This will help bring interested buyers to your listing.

Questions to Ask When Interviewing a Real Estate Agent

Before you go about typing “real estate agent Mar Vista” into a search engine, you should have some idea of the things you want to know about them before you hire them. It’s best to be prepared. Here are some things to ask one when you talk to them:

How Long Have You Been A Real Estate Agent?

While there is a chance that you could be talking to someone who, while inexperienced, has a real knack for it. Perhaps it was a family business and they picked up a lot from their other relatives. Still, it’s a good idea to go with experience.

This is because they will have had time to do things like negotiating other purchases or sales and learned some strategies along the way. They also will have built up a reputation in the real estate field. Both of these can benefit you.

How Many Homes Do You Close a Year

Again, you could be talking to a neophyte, but if you find that they close under 10 houses a year, there could be an issue. You do not want to ignore this potential warning sign that could possibly cost you money.

Do You Work With Buyers or Sellers or Both?

There are agents who are the most comfortable working with people who want to buy a home. They can find the best home for the maximum allowable budget. Then there are those who are experts at doing things like arranging homes to be viewed for a sale.

It couldn’t hurt to get a specialist for whatever you want, but if you get one that works with both, you could gain some insights from them. Ultimately, you could wind up getting the best deal on either side.

Have You Helped People WIth Homes in this Area?

“This area” would be Mar Vista, but it works for any area. If you have a real estate agent who knows a particular neighborhood well, then this is a great one to work with. They could help you find some hidden gems.

These are just a fraction of the questions that you want to ask. Others can include having them show you their license – can never be too careful – and whether you will be working with this particular agent or a team. It can never hurt to be prepared for this.

Ultimately, it’s a matter of trusting your instincts. Once you have satisfied that, you can go find your home.
