You probably need money NOW, so you will have to target investors, not retail buyers or builders. Consider selling an option on your land to an investor who is bullish on the next couple years in the Florida market. Basically, selling an option is selling the right to buy your land at a set price, within a specified period of time. They are not obligated to buy, but can within the time period (they are betting the prices will increase over time). You get the "option fee" up front, in cash, and if they buy in the future, you're cashed out, if they don't the option expires, and you still keep the fee and the property (and could do it again). $$ have to be in line with values, but this strategy puts needed money in your pocket.
Most 1-4 Family P&S contracts have sections for option periods and you can use that. Title company can help you with the rest.
Good luck. In this market it's time to get creative!
for the next year and let's see what happens with the market.
If you can afford to take a loss, list them at a VERY cheap price and we'll see what we can do.
Thank you for your question -

If you need to sell them fast, I would contact a full time certified real estate auctioneer. There are several I know who work that market and can give you a referral if you are interested.
BUT - The only way any auctioneers, myself included are accepting building lots for auction is if they are to be sold absolute, with no minimum and no reserve price.
If you have owned these a long time and bought them "right" years ago then you probably will not be selling at a loss. I can guarantee they will not bring what they would have at the peak of the bubble
