What To Know Before Selling Land in DC and Maryland

What To Know Before Selling Land

Selling vacant land quickly is a lot harder than selling a house quickly that is already built. The value is in potential use. Figuring out permitted construction requires consultation with developers, builders, architects, zoning attorneys, city officials, and the zoning board. This process costs thousands and sometimes takes months.

You can save time and money by selling your vacant land in DC and Maryland to DC Land Buyers. Don’t got cash to pay an architect? We pay for construction plans during due diligence. Live far away and can’t consult with local builders? DC Land Buyers has a real estate professional network to expedite vacant land sales.

Even if you can’t take all the steps to determine what may be built on the lot, there is some simple info you can figure out on your own before selling:

  • Zoning. Zoning governs how land may be developed. These rules and regulation determine land use (residential, commercial, industrial) as well as building specifications (area, lot coverage, dwellings per acre). Zoning is set forth by cities and counties.

  • Dimensions & Positioning. Zoning alone doesn’t determine property use – consider size, shape, and geographic positioning. Prime corner lot? Great for building. Land-locked behind another property? Little to no value. Square shape’s are buildable, while long and narrow parcels may not be.

  • Local Vacant Land & New Construction Comps. Vacant land comparables are sparse, but check out local sales, as well as new construction comps.

  • Contact The City & Zoning Board. Local building change fast. Online records are often not up to date. Reach out to the local city officials and zoning board to discuss recent changes in the area.

DC Land Buyers makes it easy to “sell my vacant land” or “empty lot”.
