Top 5 Free Websites to Sell Your Vacant Land in Florida
By Space Coast Daily // September 12, 2022
Looking to sell your Florida land fast? Get your land in front of potential buyers in just a few minutes with these websites. And…the best part…they’re all free!
The Facebook Marketplace is a section of Facebook designed for individuals to buy and sell nearly anything. In its most recent update, Facebook Marketplace offers users to create listings specifically for selling and renting homes. However, there’s not a section specifically for vacant land. We recommend creating your Facebook Marketplace listing under the ‘Miscellaneous’ section.
One big drawback is Facebook requires photographs. So, if you’re saying ‘I need to sell my land fast’ you may not have time to visit your vacant land property to take photos.
Lastly, Facebook makes it easy for prospective buyers to contact you directly through the platform. If you’re selling a desirable vacant land property and an attractive price, be prepared to field several if not dozens of inquires per day.
Here’s a link to Facebook’s guide to their Marketplace. <https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/learn-more/>
■ Reach a Huge Audience
■ No Section for Vacant Land
■ Must Have Photos
■ May Get a Lot of ‘Tire Kickers’
■ Must Have a Facebook Account
Hands down the best free real estate sales website is Zillow.com. Zillow is specifically designed for real estate. Although, Zillow is focused on home sales and rentals. It’s not exclusive for vacant land. But, unlike Facebook Marketplace, you have the ability to create a listing that’s labeled vacant land.
One quirk to Zillow is that you have to ‘verify your listing.’ Makes sense, right? Zillow wants to ensure its sellers will respond to prospective buyers’ inquiries.
After you submit your listing on Zillow, you will receive an automated phone call asking to enter in the property’s zip code and asking price. Here’s the thing…you never know when you’ll receive this phone call. Sometimes you’ll receive the call within a minute or two after you submit the listing, sometimes a few hours later and sometimes a whole day. And, if you don’t enter the zip code and asking price correctly, Zillow may not approve your listing.
■ Audience is Actively Looking for Real Estate
■ Can Create Listing for Vacant Land
■ Must Verify Your Listing
Compared to Facebook Marketplace and Zillow.com, Craigslist is very accessible. You can create a listing within just a minute or two and you don’t need to sign up for an account. And, although it would help, you don’t even need photos of your vacant land. These are two big pluses if you are looking to sell your Florida land fast.
It seems that Craigslist is more popular in some cities and towns versus others. It’s possible that your listing on Craigslist can be viewed by just a few dozen or so people. Not ideal if you’re looking to sell your land fast. But, hey, it just takes a few minutes to create your listing and it’s free!
■ No Account Needed, Can Post in Minutes
■ Photos Aren’t Required
■ Audience Size May Be Very Small
This website is one of those ‘we buy land’ websites that connects you to specialists that focus on buying vacant land as investments. Rather than advertising your vacant land to the general public, SellTheLandNow.com connects you to Florida real estate investors that focus on buying vacant land.
What makes SellTheLandNow.com different than other ‘we buy land websites is that it connects you to multiple investors all at once. This saves you time and can help you sell your land faster rather than going to dozens of websites that only connect you to one investor.
Posting your Florida property on this website can get you cash offers in a matter of days (or even hours) as these investors are actively buying vacant land. And, many times the investor will handle the closing process from start to finish – making the transaction fast and easy. This is helpful if you (and your buyer) are unfamiliar with the real estate transaction process.
However, unlike ‘retail buyers’ who may be buying on emotion, investors look at the dollars and cents. Investors tend not to pay top-dollar (they are investors) but can help you sell your land fast. If you’re saying ‘sell my Florida land fast’ this may be an option to consider.
■ Likely to Get a Cash Offer Within Days
■ Investor can Make Transaction Quick and Easy
■ Investors Don’t Pay Top Dollar
This website is dedicated solely to buying and selling vacant land. Like all the websites on our list, Land-Listings.com is free to create a listing to sell your vacant land. They do offer paid listings that can promote your property to more buyers. You’ll be reaching an audience that’s just looking for vacant land. That’s where you want to be if you’re looking to sell your Florida land fast, right?
■ Reach People Only Looking to Buy Vacant Land
Audience Size Can be Small
■ Tip: Create a free listing and then consider a paid listing.
