Selling land in Texas; how do I go about it?

Asked by ecampillo, 90007 Thu Jul 26, 2012

Several years ago, I inherited some land in Texas, approx. 6 acres, and held onto it int eh hope I would use it in the future. Now, I've been paying property taxes and my life is going in a direction that won't allow me to really make any personal use of the land until my old age and I think i would rather sell it, but I have no idea how to go about it.
I live in California and would like to make this as hassle free as possible.
The land has nothing on it except an old abandoned steeple church and barn, and is arable land for the most part according to surveys. There my be some abandoned non-functioning farm equipment if it hasn't been hauled away by scrappers.

Hi Texas - You may want to contact a Realtor in California. If you don't know of anyone, ask family and friends for a referral. Once you get an agent explain to them what you want to do and they will contact a Texas agent. It should not be a big issue for you. Let the agents handle it. Good luck.

Contact some Realtors in the area of Texas and ask them to do a market valuation of the property and send them to you. Decide if you like one of the Realtors and let them guide you on how to get it listed for sale, they know how to do what you want to do. Take your time and interview a few agents and see which will work best for you.
