“Selling Your Land: Maximize Your Property Value” - Maddy Bjugan

Are you considering selling your property? The process of selling land can be intricate and overwhelming, often accompanied by a fair share of stress and uncertainty. It involves navigating through a complex process, considering various factors, and making important decisions. When selling land, it’s important to know that with the right approach, you can navigate this journey smoothly and obtain the highest possible value for your land.

To help you work through this process effectively, we’ve outlined three essential steps that will empower you to get the highest possible value for your land. Let’s dive in!

Know Your Land – Understand your Land’s Characteristics

Understanding your land’s defining characteristics is key to a successful and profitable transaction. There are both physical and non-physical characteristics that can directly influence the value of your land.

When getting to know your land, you can look for things such as location, wetland/habitats, flood zone, property zoning, and potential obstacles.

Having a clear understanding of your land’s defining features and potential enables you to easily identify its selling points and make accurate assessments when selling.

Know your Buyer

Gather Relevant Information – Be Ready

Although not required, collecting and providing relevant information about your land not only streamlines the sales process but also instills confidence in potential buyers.

Information that will be useful when selling your land to potential buyers include:

  • Land Title/Deed

  • Property Map

  • Zoning Information

  • Easements

  • Restrictive Covenants

  • Property Tax Records

  • Asset List

  • Land Revenue

Gathering this information before selling your land prepares you for potential buyer inquiries, expediting and smoothing the process between both parties. It’s a worthwhile investment of your time.

Know your Buyer – Trust and Transparency

Trust is crucial when selling land, and the buyer must demonstrate transparency and keep you informed throughout the process.

As a seller, you deserve clear communication and complete transparency to ensure a smooth and trustworthy transaction.

In the case of residential land development, you should not be signing lengthy one-sided agreements, and instead, expect the buyer to provide clear timelines and a realistic assessment of project feasibility.

Know your Buyer

Knowing your land, gathering important information, and knowing your buyer are 3 essential steps when maximizing your land’s value.
