I'm all new to this, how do I start the process?

What exactly do you need to know?

@Carlton Kohler To be honest, everything from top to bottom.

flipping land?  how long are you going to hold it for?  takes a while to appreciate (land).  paying cash to start off?

@Marcus Rogers ,

Welcome to BP.  You can do several things, but first I would recommend listening to BP Podcast #39 with Seth Williams (www.biggerpockets.com/show39).  That podcast is only about flipping land.

After you listen to that podcast, you should have a lot of starting points for your research.  Take notes while you're listening of things to do (select some counties near you to contact regarding finding the land you want to flip, etc) after you finish the podcast.

Then you can use the site as a resource to:

  • Search the forums for land flipping related posts ("flip land", "land flipping", "buy and sell land", etc)
  • Search the marketplace to look for deals that are for land and perform trial analysis to see if you understand the concepts you've learned
  • Add the people who are talking about flipping land as colleagues and start discussions with them on how they got started, and what they would recommend you do and don't do as well as mistakes to avoid
  • Post more specific questions on the forum once you have a more solid understanding of what's involved and where you specifically need a clearer understanding of what you are trying to do.

Best of luck in your educational research!

Jared S.  - I'm just starting out. Any advice sir?

Marcus, I've never done it.  I'm new to this forum, so sorry i cant really give too many tips on land.  I was just curious if you're paying cash and going to hold ot for a while or.....?
