Buying and developing land is a risky business. We know… because we’ve done it!
We understand that this industry is about more than just location, location, Location! Finding the right information and leaving no stone unturned is why our clients profit from working with us.
Risk factors associated with land acquisition:
- Price & terms
- Market conditions
- Entitlements & fees
- Environmental issues
- Construction costs
Our experience enables us to effectively investigate, understand, and communicate these issues with the appropriate parties. Our talent is finding solutions that meet the needs of both sides of the table. Our years in the business have taught us that unless we meet the business objectives of the client, no transaction will take place.
We specialize in creating opportunities that you won’t find on the residential and commercial MLS. We look at land every day. If we don’t have it listed, we know where to find it.
Working For Our Clients
The most important person in the transaction is our client. The sales price and its terms are determined by you with our assistance and knowledge. Pricing land depends on your goals for the property. We will advise you of your options. You decide the path to take!
Gathering information is key! We spend an incredible amount of time analyzing the information we seek from a mountain of sources. Government agencies, public databases, and our own business associations provide us with a wealth of available information.
- Plat maps, Zoning Maps
- Utility Plans
- City Ordinances
- Comprehensive Plans
- Aerial Photos
- Traffic Counts
- Title Information
- Soil Information & Topgraphical Maps
- Rents & Comparable Sales
Sorting and analyzing that information is even more important. Our brokers and agents are trained to translate that information in a way that is understandable to you.
Marketing Your Property
We use a host of tools available to market your property. Some clients want the most visible, inclusive and far-reaching marketing plan available. Other clients have reasons to be more discrete. We work with you to achieve the most appropriate marketing strategy you need.
