A property listed on Trulia should be listed through an agent or service who lists their properties in your local MLS. All you need to do is have them update the photo for you.

Check to see if the agent is already experienced in selling land in the area and if they have a number of other land listings that will attract attention and traffic to your listing as well. Also interview the agent and see how they answer questions about the land and potential development, because the agent is going to be the one fielding questions from other agents and potential buyers about wells, flow rates, perc., septic systems, utilities, etc. ... more

Ron below me is right you can search for a Realtor here on Trulia, or you can ask one of us, if we have
a good partner agent to recommend to you. You should connect with a Realtor in the area who has some
expertise in listing and selling land and farm land, as he or she then would be better prepared to market
price and advertise your farmland best.
Let us know if you need a direct recommendation.
Good Luck to you

27 showings and an offer, not too bad and you seem to be happy with all other that is related to marketing and selling your home, you know patience may be all you need and the one right buyer
who is pre-approved with a nice size down payment.....

May be they are like a needle in a haystack..... So all you and your Realtor can do, is make it easy to be shown, and spread the word as best as your Realtor is able to do.....

May be an incentive for the buyer to pay some of the closing costs for the buyer, may help
some buyers, but then they are also not the ones with the nice size down payment.

You could try some curb appeal changes if that is possible it sounds that all is perfect just the perfect buyer has not yet shown up.... Now you say the price is right, may be reducing it to another level
will bring in a different group of buyers.

Let's say you are listed at 355 K and now you are going down to 349 if before buyers or their agents were looking for 350 to 450 K now that you are at 349 You will get a new group looking
in the 250 to 350 or 300 to 350 range, just an example of course discuss it with your Realtor
and trust her advice she knows what is going on in your neighborhood, also if new homes have
come on the market may be you want to have a look at them with her, to determine if you are
still priced right or let's say competitively....

Good Luck to you, you seem to be sellers wonderful to work with and you seem to appreciate your Realtor and all she is doing to get your home sold. Good for you both :)

Ken Dooley answered:

Hire an agent that can generate exposure outside of the U.S. Marketing Real Estate today has gone beyond the local and national level and is truly global. Make sure your agent belongs to an operation that has offices in other countries and the agent is Transnational Referral Certified (TRC). This allows the agent to market to other agents internationally within a set of guidelines that each party must adhere to throughout the transaction.
In my market alone, land deals have turned into developments. The Chicago Spire which will be the tallest structure in North America is being developed by Shelbourne Development based in Dublin, Ireland. Another Chicago project is the Lexington, developed by Chieftain Construction based in Limerick Ireland. Developers no longer look in one location but search internationally for land opportunities and act when they look attractive even if the local market thinks differently (50% of The Spire pre-construction sales are to International buyers from around the world).
Make sure your agent uses to market listings.

Good luck, Ken.
