The majority of landowners sell their land once in a lifetime, and having an experienced adviser when navigating these murky waters can be quite helpful. Consider several key ways we earn our commission:
1. Pricing your property accurately in the current market. An experienced agent will have the pulse of the current market in the area. They know the comparable sales history, and have a feel for what buyers are looking for and willing to pay. In the current market, I have seen buyers be sensitive within $1000 an acre, so getting the right price is crucial to attracting buyer interest.
2. Marketing the property in media that buyers use. Placing an ad in the local newspaper may garner some interest, but one recent statistic says that over 80% of land buyers search for property online before going to look at land. As a landowner, can you afford to pay the monthly fees to advertise your one listing on land sites, and which ones generate the best activity? We believe our land marketing is cutting edge with the help of video, Google earth, quality photography and a passion and understanding of land development.
3. Showing the Property and negotiating offers. Time is money and showing land takes time. You must first compile all the relevant maps, topos and neighborhood information, then comes the phone calls and emails that you need to respond, scheduling showing and then walking the property. We can negotiate for you, not allowing emotions and motivation show and get you the best price for your property.
4. Professional networks. Prior to closing we almost always need a survey, we know the local surveyors and can get quotes and work completed in a timely manner so we can close. We meet the County Environmental health department on site for well and septic testing, and can usually make changes in the field to accommodate whatever is needed. Graders, conservation advisors, attorneys, wetland specialist and engineers are all part of the network we have in place to get you from offer to closing table in a timely manner.
