Listing acres of land for sale is different from trying to sell a typical home. As you enter this unique real estate market, it helps to know how to prepare and position your property. The team at EXIT Realty Black Hills has extensive experience selling acreage and has shared some insider tips below for preparing your Rapid City, SD, property.
As you prepare to list your land for sale, use these tips to reach the right people:
- Know Your Buyer: There’s no point in marketing your property to people who are not interested in buying land like yours. Prepare the information they are going to need. If it’s an agricultural property, for example, the buyer will be interested in soil reports and irrigation information. If a family looking to build a custom home is your target audience, have the local zoning and utility service information prepared.
- Prepare the Land: Just as you stage homes for sale to make them look their best, you’ll want to show off the best of your land. Keep the grass mowed and the weeds under control, consider planting some wildflowers for color, and have professional photographs taken. Have a survey done, and mark off the boundaries of the lot so buyers can better visualize the area.
- Be Patient: The market for land typically is not as active as one for finished homes for sale or houses on smaller lots. As long as you price it right and are patient for the right buyer to come along, you can expect to get a fair price for your property. Just keep reasonable expectations for time frames and sale prices so there are no surprises.
