How would I go about finding land developers to buy land?

11 Replies

My family has land that they are trying to sale.  Lives in Baldwin county in Fairhope, AL. The land is undeveloped so I was wondering if it is best to try to sell to a land developer?

Hey @Ashley Hankins  

Yes, that would be a good place to start.  Or, since you are interested in investing, maybe finding a builder to partner with?  You supply the land, he does the building, and y'all split the profits up.

Any builders on here in Fairhope, Alabama??

 Thank you for the advice, I'm new to this @Andrew Davis, that sounds great, even though my family, I believe are just interested in selling the land, which I have brought your idea up a few times. I'm actually on my way to Alabama now, hopefully we could come up with an agreement. But if that does not work, then what?

@Andrew Davis are undeveloped property harder to sell?

This might be obvious, but a local real estate agent might be a good place to start. 

Yep, put it on the market with a local agent.  You never know where a buyer will come from until it gets exposed to the widest audience.  If any developers are interested, you'd find them this way too.

Great question, I have no idea!

Like @Adam Anderson  and @Wayne Brooks  suggested.  List it with local broker, they will be able to market it and get it sold for you.

 Thank you!

Of course, feel free to reach out anytime!
