Good luck in your venture. You may want to check out Landwatch.com or other websites to list this land if you are not going to list with a realtor. Current statistics show Gilmer county, as of end of Sept. '09 has 7,519 lots or parcels of land on the market. 41.% are listed for under $50,000(3,129 parcels); 36.6% are listed between $50K-$100K (2757 parcels); and the other 23% (1,718 parcels) are listed over $100K. That is your competition! Some are individual lots, some are subdivisions. I suggest you get a realtor to create a CMA (Comparative Price Analysis) for you to give you the right range to price your S/D. Be sure you have at least some "slivers" of views cut on lots with that feature so lookers and pictures can reflect that option. If you have any water features, also "beautify" those for pictures. You need signage with a plat, if already created, so people can orient themselves to which lot is which. However, if you don't go with a realtor, you need to get an internet presence because that is where the modern day shopper starts. We used to be able to go to builders and get them interested in lots; now, builders aren't building, banks aren't lending except for custom homes (contract in hand!) and life is different with all the foreclosures mixed into our inventory. Just for your information, Sept. 09 sales of land numbered 10 and year to date numbers 82. Median price is 49,900.
I hope this gives you a perspective of the market we are in and will help you plan how to market your property. One other source may be talking with commercial realtors who may have investors with an interest.
