Do you own land you want to sell in Tennessee? If you own land but don’t want to use a real estate agent to sell it then be sure to read this blog post to help you understand how to sell vacant lots and land without a Realtor in Tennessee.
If you are a land owner in Tennessee or surrounding states, and if you’re thinking about selling it then make sure you understand all the options available to you.
The default for most people is to sell their land through a real estate agent (also known as a Realtor) but this is not always the best choice for each situation. An agent might be able to find a buyer (but maybe not) and they’ll get paid a hefty commission by you when the sale is done.
How to sell vacant lots and land without a Realtor in Tennessee
Market your land
People need to know your land is for sale so you need to make sure as many people as possible are aware that you’re selling it. Post it everywhere you can think of. Here’s a short list of ideas to start: Post it for sale on classified ad sites, in local newspapers, on Craigslist, on your social media such as Facebook, and even on posters that you create to put up around town. Market continuously and repeatedly because people need to see something several times before it really registers in their mind! Be sure you include the details of the property including acreage, location/address, price, and your contact information. It’s also helpful to give potential buyers some ideas of what the property is best used for.
Show your land
When someone is interested and reaches out to you about your land, make arrangements to show it to them. You may or may not want to be there when they’re looking, but consider that it may be helpful walking them through it, showing them various features of the land parcel, and answering any questions they may have. This will also help you hear clearly from potential buyers what they are looking for so you can know what’s important to them, which could help you market your property.
Negotiate and close
When you meet an interested buyer, invite them to make you an offer. Remember: your asking price is just a starting point; you’re each sharing your desired price point and then trying to find common ground, which could include lowering the price, adjusting the terms, or providing other incentives to the deal.
Keep it legal!
One of the main reasons people sell through a real estate agent is because the agent can help negotiate the price and work through the challenging parts of the contact and ensure all parties are protected. Be sure to thoroughly research your obligations and requirements before you commit anything to paper.
