Land For Sale in Columbia SC
Choosing the Right Real Estate Agent
Looking for land for sale in South Carolina? Many real estate agents have the same tools to sell the same product but not many have the know-how and resources to find and or acreage in South Carolina. There is a big, actually huge, difference in selling Land for sale in Columbia SC vs, selling homes for sale in Columbia SC. “Why”, you may ask?
Well… land is unique and landowners are particular about strangers driving across or walking through their vacant land. Many times acreage is used as a hunting tract, farming, development or livestock and it can be disrupting to the seller to have anyone crossing their land when it is “in use”. Furthermore, without a good understanding of how property boundaries are marked can put you in a dangerous situation... like during hunting season. This is one of the reasons that most landowners do not list their land for sale on the MLS system.
The key to finding acreage for sale in South Carolina is knowing the right people and networking with them on a consistent basis. And once you have found the right property, it is important that your real estate agent knows the important procedures and signs to determine the value. Here’s an example, why would two neighboring 50-acre tracts have a difference in value? I’m sure that you can take a few guesses but the most common answer would be timber value. Many agents don’t understand that there are other factors in value than “location, location, location”. This is a simple example and often overlooked. There are hundreds of other factors that may determine the value of real estate and vacant land.
