FAQS

What Would You Like to Know?

 

WHY SELL TO US

When you sell directly to us, you cut out a broker's commission and listing fees (on average around 6% of the sales price). We will also send you an offer within days versus waiting months for a broker to find a buyer for you. Finally, we will cover all title and closing costs!

HOW DO I GET DIRECTIONS OR FIND A PROPERTY?

Every property has GPS coordinates posted in the listing. Simply copy and paste a set of coordinates into google maps and it will show you how to get to the property. We provide all of the GPS corner coordinates so you can plug in each set and roughly walk the property boundary while you are checking out the land.

IF I CALL THE COUNTY TO ASK THEM A QUESTION, HOW DO I REFER TO THE PROPERTY SO THEY KNOW WHERE THE LAND IS LOCATED?

The information provided on each property’s listing page includes the APN Number and Legal Description. Typically when you’re speaking about rural, vacant and undeveloped land you will use one of these to denote the property or its general location.

DO WE NEED TO MEET IN PERSON?

While we value both our sellers and buyers equally, we rarely, if ever meet any of the people we do business with. The entire process is done remotely using email, phone, mail and fax. The efficiency of this business model allows us to pass the savings on to you, the buyer.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ME TO GET MY DEED?

Because we record the new deed for our buyers (and hence, eliminates the extra expense and hassle of recording) this means that the deed must first be mailed to the County Clerk or Recorder’s Office. Once it has been recorded it is then forwarded on to the buyer by a representative of that county’s office. From start to finish this process usually takes about three weeks though it’s not uncommon for the Clerk’s office to mail it back to us by mistake. In this circumstance we will immediately forward it on to our buyers after notifying them by e-mail of the mix up.

WILL I NEED AN ATTORNEY OR REAL ESTATE AGENT?

While we would never discourage anyone from seeking proper legal counsel, we have gone through great effort to simplify the buying process with straightforward, easy-to-read contracts. Furthermore, land acquisition and resale is not typically a heady or paperwork intensive process and rarely does it involve more than a notary. In fact in our experience, the participation of an agent or attorney is the exception and not the rule when it comes to legally conveying rural vacant land from one party to another. This is yet another reason why our prices are so low.
All this being said, if a buyer feels more comfortable having a professional review the contracts under which they purchase one of our properties, we would never object.

WHY IS THE PROPERTY SO CHEAP?

Because we purchase properties in very large volume – we receive reduced rates, the savings for which we are then able to pass on to our buyers at deeply discounted or “wholesale” prices.

WHEN CAN I START USING THE PROPERTY AFTER I BUY IT?

As soon as our company signs the deed to you and you receive the new deed or the county records the deed in your name.

HOW DID YOU FIND ME?

A. We found you by searching for properties at your County Tax Assessor’s office. We ran a search for land that meets our buying criteria. Every county in the USA is required to keep information on the owner of every single property within its borders. They do this so they know who to send the tax bill to each year. We searched the county records and found your property there.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO BUY MY PROPERTY? WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH IT?

 We buy property that fits a certain set of criteria desirable to our list of buyers. It might be the view, the location, the access, the size, how close (or far) it is to the nearest town, etc. We have a large list of buyers and we ask them what they want and search for multiple properties that fit their requirements. Then, we acquire that property from owners who want to cash out and sell it to our buyer.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR OFFER PRICE?

We look at several factors: recently sold comparable properties, listed properties and how long it takes for them to sell, assessor’s value, our buyer’s budget, etc. We know you might be able to get more for your property if you listed it with a Real Estate Agent and tried to sell it at a full retail price. However, those listings often sit for months, and sometimes years, and then when it does sell, even if YOU find the buyer, you must pay Realtor commissions. Our pricing ensures we can buy your property fast and get your money to you quickly.

HOW LONG IS THIS OFFER GOOD FOR?

Our offers are typically good for 6 months. However, we will buy properties from offers that are years and years old. We just need to update the pricing. So, if you are not ready or even want to sell your property right now, go ahead and hold onto our offer. File it in a safe place, because there might come a time when you need cash fast, or are simply done with paying property taxes year after year for something you are probably not using. At that point pull out the offer, dust it off and give us a call. We will take a fresh look at it and see what we can do to get a check in your hand fast.
