What information is collected from the seller during the initial phase?


We ask for the name that is listed on the deed for the property, county that the property is located in and a parcel number if available. In order for our land specialist to get in contact with the seller we ask for a phone number and email.




What if I don’t have my original deed?


Typically, you don’t need the original deed when selling a piece of land. Most counties have the original records on file for land in their area.




What if I owe back taxes or HOA/POA fees?


We can pay those back taxes and extra fees that are due on your piece of property. That cost will be calculated into our offer price.




Should I just sell my land myself?


Selling your land by owner is always an option, but it can sometimes take months to even years to find an end buyer for vacant land. Working with a real estate agent can be challenging because vacant land does not move quickly on the market when compared to houses. Additionally, many real estate agents do not focus on land sales because of the lower commissions compared to selling higher dollar houses.




What expenses are involved with selling land?


With KPA Land we do not charge you any costs. Below is a list of expenses that we take care of.

  • Broker Fees
  • Title and Escrow Charges
  • Advertising Expenses
  • Local County Transfer Taxes
  • County Recording Costs
  • Listing and Photography payments




What if there is not a clear line of ownership to the title?


We have worked with sellers who have dealt with a variety of title issues. We will not shy away from title issues, but we ask you to keep in mind that it may take longer than our typical timeframe to clear the title. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to file a probate, apply for a quiet title, or research other creative ways to clear the title.
