It is always smart to explore your selling options before selling your property in Arizona. Many people think that the only way to sell their real estate successfully is to hire an agent and wait around for a buyer. However, this is not the only way to sell. These days, quite a few people are opting to sell on their own, either using an FSBO listing or selling to a direct buyer. However, once you factor in the financial aspects and time commitments required to sell your land, you may find you want to take a different approach to getting the deal closed. In this post, we share different ways of marketing your land to make it easier for you to compare your selling options in Arizona.
A Direct Sale
The first of your selling options comes in the form of a direct sale. A direct sale of your land will help you sell your property quickly and efficiently. Working with Investment Land Alliance will eliminate all selling costs, save you valuable time, let you plan ahead, and help you keep more cash in your pocket. You won’t need to spend any time or money on marketing, repairs, or clearing the land to help it sell faster. We handle all of the paperwork and are able to pay you for your land right away. A traditional sale can take months, whereas selling directly to Investment Land Alliance will take only a few days. We will work on your schedule to make the process as simple as possible for you.
Selling On Your Own
Another of your selling options is to sell your Arizona land on your own. The one will require some real effort. It is wise to have some real estate knowledge under your belt so you can understand all laws and be prepared for the negotiation process. You should understand the local market, and be able to recognize a good offer. With a For Sale By Owner Listing, or an FSBO, you will need to handle all of the marketing on your own. This includes online listings, print materials, newspaper ads, and signage. You will also need to be able to answer questions and show the property to potential buyers as requested. If you do find a potential buyer, you will need to ensure all of the paperwork and contracts are handled correctly. When choosing an FSBO listing, it is always smart to speak to a local real estate attorney to make sure everything is done the right way.
Hiring An Agent
A third of your selling options is: hiring a local Arizona agent, which is the choice for those who don’t mind some upfront costs, costs after the sale, and who don’t have a set time in which they need to sell by. When you put your property on the MLS, you will likely need to do some work to the land so it is competitive with others on the market. You will then need to wait to see if an offer comes in. This can happen in days, weeks, months, or sometimes not at all. If a buyer is found, you will have to go through the closing process which can involve inspections, appraisals, and any other red-tape from a possible lender. After an offer is accepted, it can be weeks before the property actually closes.
At Investment Land Alliance, we want to help you make the decision that is in your best interest. Whether you decide to sell directly, on your own, or with an agent, make sure to fully explore all your options before choosing how to sell your Arizona land.
