I want to reach out to a few in the counties I’m looking at because there isn’t much to go by on Landwatch, Zillow etc. Should I just call ahead, make a day of it, and pay them cash? I don’t want to waste their time and ask them to do it for free.
Marcus – I would call them on the phone. Be honest and tell them that you are an investor who is thinking about buying land in the area. Ask questions. Most will be happy to chat. Some will even have useful information. Try to find the realtors who are listing land for sale. You are not wasting their time. You are developing a relationship that may benefit both of you.
