Sell Your Land Quickly Using These Tips And Tricks

Selling raw land is typically less intensive than selling a piece of property with a home on it, because there aren't any structures, septic systems, or landscape upgrades to worry about. And because undeveloped land is less expensive than developed properties, it's usually a little easier to sell. But more than likely your piece of land won't be the only one up for grabs at the same time, so you can expect some competition when it comes time to sell. Here are a couple of things you can do to increase buyer interest and get your land sold quickly:

Survey the Land

An excellent way to optimize interest among potential buyers is to have your land surveyed by a professional before you put it on the market. Your surveyor will create land maps and boundary specifics that you can provide to potential buyers so they know exactly what they'll be getting in return for their investment. Having your land surveyed will also provide potential buyers with the following information:

  • Locations of abandoned roads and easements.

  • Outlines of features such as ponds and natural gardens.

  • Locations of rights-of-ways and joint driveways.

  • Locations of where water, electric, and gas pipelines are already installed or can be installed.

A land survey report and detailed maps of the land is sure to provide potential buyers with some peace of mind when deciding whether or not to make a purchase.

Implement Land Barriers

Creating some privacy around your land is an awesome way to increase curb appeal and maximize buyer interest, especially among those who are interested in building a home on the property. You can create appealing land barriers using a variety of techniques and materials. Consider surrounding your property with one or more of the following options:

  • Line the perimeter with hibiscus bushes – they come in a variety of colors that are sure to enhance the look and feel of the property.

  • Install lattice walls that are about a foot in height and plant vegetables, such as squash and green beans, that will grow tall along the lattice. This will provide both privacy and free food for potential buyers.

  • Plant baby trees along the perimeter of your land to improve curb appeal and increase your property value.

Any type of property border is sure to be seen as an improvement and benefit to potential buyers.

These tips and tricks should help ensure that your land doesn't have to sit on the market very long.
