Nope, been there and tried all that even with support calls with CoreLogic. The RQ search and filter functions are super basic with no Boolean or “exclude” capability. You’ll have to get creative with your filtering if you want to get specific. For example if you don’t want a few zip codes in a county you’ll have to explicitly list only the…[Read more]

At this point, you may want to try some of the tactics landlords and note owners use to motivate or find their non-responsive tenants or borrowers.
This includes a take on “cash for keys” — “cash for signatures”. Offer them money for signing the additional documents, maybe $250 per person.
And to get their attention, you could either…[Read more]
I think it really comes down to SEO (search engine optimization). If your goal is to have most of your leads come from online searches like “need to sell my land fast in Arizona” or “cheap vacant land in Colorado,” then you should plan on having individual websites to take advantage of SEO. This can be done without much fuss through LeadPropeller…[Read more]
I have 116 acres that a seller is looking to sell. It’s listed for about $225k but he mentioned the word “ASAP” when I spoke to him so I’m trying to come up with an offer. Let’s assume it’s worth the $200k that two like kind properties sold for within the last year, what would you offer? I have no idea how pricing changes in this price range.…[Read more]

I’d like to add a few more questions to the thread. When closing with a title company do you need to present? What if you (as the seller) are in a different state than where the land is located?
Have members closed with a title or escrow company while not being present? If so, is there a term for that? Is this what’s called a courtesy close –…[Read more]
I’m going to comment in here because I’m curious what others’ experiences have been (any by commenting hopefully this thread will get some more exposure again and more people weigh in). I have two sites currently, but if you google my LLC name, which is on my purchase agreement, then you get my selling website and my pages on LandWatch and other…[Read more]

I’m just going to comment to follow this post. I’m curious what everyone’s experience has been selling through title when they bought on their own.
My guess, is going to be that if you bought it from and individual or married couple where everyone was there to sign, then it will go plenty smooth. And that if you bought from an LLC, trust, or so…[Read more]
I haven’t done this, but if it were me I would 100% go through title. That’s a crazy amount of paperwork and my understanding is that title will charge their usual fee then a “per parcel” extra fee that is less than if you did 72 individual title closes. The economy of scale kicks in in your favor. Save your time for posting properties and tal…[Read more]

I have been telling them I need 1 day for document prep and on day 2 to meet with a notary. This gives me time for Stripe to process the payment and get it into my account. That being said, Shay from Heartland told me that with Stripe and other CC processors that they can file a charge back up to 6 months after the purchase, and that stripe will…[Read more]

Yea I’d agree with your last comment. I’m no expert but my understanding is that as long as it can identify the property you should be ok. I think Luke Smith once said a title person offered to completely rewrite a legal description because it’s was really wordy and confusing and they could apparently rewrite it more concisely.
My 2 cents…[Read more]
I have a potential 72-parcel, bundle deal spanning across multiple subdivisions in a TX county. They are all currently listed on the MLS and the Seller is also a licensed Realtor and will de-list them all if I decide to buy after a bunch of Due Diligence.
Any “lessons learned” or words or wisdom based on experience towards the best way to buy…[Read more]

Hi Bei — I haven’t done a sale on terms, but I think you read that correctly.
In this particular case/contract, the vendee (the buyer of the land on contract) is simply responsible for paying the taxes himself, as opposed to it being collected and paid by the vendor (the seller) through the monthly payment.
You would want to check with local…[Read more]
I think mentioning mineral rights creates more problems than its worth. When people buy land, they want it to be “their” land.
If you start removing mineral rights and adding easements, etc. I would think it becomes less attractive. I have removed it from my agreements. No one has ever asked to keep them.
Now if you are buying and selling…[Read more]

I agree. This article implies that as long as the property can unique qualified or deciphered in the legal description, then it’s a legit deed. “http://homeguides.sfgate.com/can-quit-claim-deed-voided-word-misspelled-81557.html”. I’m going to go with it!

So I’m creating a deed and I noticed the vesting deed has the subdivision in the legal description spelled wrong. Does the owner actually own it?
I would like to ask a favor of the group. I’m just getting started and I would like to get some ‘likes’ on my land page on Facebook:
Also, I recently paid to boost a Facebook post that links back to a recent blog post on my land website (3 Mistakes to Avoid After Inheriting Land). If you could…[Read more]
Kevin & Joe: I sent an offer to myself as part of the mailer — that’s how I know it hasn’t reached Colorado yet (other than no response — including hate calls. Ha.).
But that’s a good tip for anyone just starting out.
So, I sent out my first mailer at the end of April and this is what I learned: USPS standard mail can take upwards of 3 weeks to be delivered.
Standard mail is another name for bulk mail, and USPS indicates that standard mail will “typically be delivered in under 5 business days locally, but nationwide it could take 2 to 3 weeks” because it “is…[Read more]
