Land For Sale In Alabama-Counties To Speculate In
Category - Real Estate Information Sources - Real Estate Articles

If you would like to get into land for sale in Alabama and be an investor or backer you have to to know what counties are best for your purchase and back end sales. You need to know how to get a better purchase price.  This is the main thing you need to know if you want to be a land investor in Alabama.


You have to know your market when you are an investor.  Know where you can buy right and know where a likely location to sell my product is. It does not matter what you are selling, snow balls or land; you must have a market to sell it in and in Alabama that means near Tuscaloosa or Birmingham.  These are both high traffic spots. I have experience buying and selling in several counties in Alabama and here are a few I really liked doing business in: Blount, Dallas, Pike, Monroe, Colbert, Baldwin, Bibb, and Barbour just to name a few. I liked these counties and I believe there are many more great counties out there but when you are looking at proximity to Mobile, thatís what made me look at these. Mobile County, which is all around the city of Mobile. When I bought land these Alabama counties still had some of large land tracts left and could be divided into more affordable small farms or ranches.


Just remember that you make your money on the buying end of land for sale in Alabama, not when you sell. If you will keep that in mind you will stay much safer and not get over extended with borrowed money. The best way to buy land to resell and make a profit is two fold, either it has to be a larger land tract which will always be cheaper or either it has to have some kind of problem that needs fixing. Do you want to know why a larger tract of land is cheaper?  Letís discuss this a minute. If you are looking at land for sale in Alabama and are looking at 10 or 20 acres to buy, you are in the majority and this would be a very safe purchase. If a land tract has problems and by that I mean title issues or the land is old ranch land thatís been let go and is going to cost a lot of money people shy away from this purchase.  Even old farmland that was in production and has been let go might scare buyers away.  These are a few things people just are not willing to tackle on their own, even though in some cases itís not really that big of a deal.


These are your buying strengths to negotiate with for a good price on a large land tract. As I have already said, the day you buy your land is when you make your profit. To back up this statement look at the market today. You might find three buyers for every ten that were in the market three years ago. It would be nice to be able to adjust down on your price and still make money and in many cases just get out.


I suggest that if this is your first time to buy land for sale in Alabama, try your luck in Mobile County or Baldwin County.  These are both good location to Mobile but yet far enough out to get the deal we are all looking for.
