Do you have Louisiana land you are considering
selling? Are you unsure whether to sell
it yourself or pay a real estate professional?
Let me give you several reasons you might want to hire a professional.
If you have land for sale in Arkansas and canít
decide if you should market the land yourself or hire a real estate broker, let
me give you some pros and cons. I can
help you make a more educated decision.
One of the main reasons people donít want to hire a broker to sell their
is the commission they have to pay. It
can add up to thousands of dollars, especially on a large transaction. There is also the issue of signing a contract
allowing the broker to market your property as he sees fit. This contract might
be for six months or it might be for a year.
These two cons for hiring a broker to sell your Arkansas land for sale often keep people
from getting top dollar for their land.
Nothing takes the place of
experience in the real estate market. I
am passionate about this as I have twenty years experience and have sold
hundreds of land tracts in my career.
You should shop for an aggressive qualified real estate broker to sell
land. Market exposure is the key factor
to look for in a realtor. In todayís
world of internet land listing websites, an individual cannot get the overall
exposure that the internet can. Many
realtors know which websites are the best and how to get your land listed on
them. It is cheaper to post your Arkansas land for sale
online than in papers. You still need
help in writing the listing so as to attract attention. A real estate broker is going to bring a
black book containing clients who have already expressed an interest in a
certain land and can match one of their clients with your property. These are
just a few reasons to use a real estate pro, a Realtor can also advise you on
what your property may need to attract the right buyer like with land a little
bulldozer work will go a long way to spruce up your land.
In addition to marketing the
property it is a big advantage to hire a professional when it comes to
financing the land after the sale. If
you donít know how to help the buyer to obtain financing, you may never sell your
property. If the buyer does not have an
830 credit score and twenty percent down, it isnít going to happen. This is where most sales are lost. A Real
Estate professional will have access to lenders that the average person does
not, I repeat I said the average person, some people that bank a lot in their
business may have better access to a bank that will lend on land but in these
days that is tough.
If you have land for sale in Arkansas,
I highly recommend a licensed Real Estate Broker to sell your property for you.
There is nothing worse than finally getting a buyer for your land and then
seeing the deal blow out due to lack of financing.
