The best way to sell land in Rio Rancho quickly is, PRICE. Determining if the lot has utilities can help increase the selling time, since lots with or near utilities attract more buyers.

When I list land, I take multiple photos, a 360 degree video and a satellite image of the lot. Marketing is a HUGE factor in getting land sold.

I can provide you with a detailed market analysis of your land at no cost. You will know what lots have sold for and what lots are presently listed at. There are also no upfront fees for me to list your property.

If and when you're ready to sell, I drive out to the actual lot, take multiple photos of the area, custom create a satellite image of where the lot is with nearby development, shoot a 360 degree video (which is marketed on YouTube, Facebook, etc.) and exclusively showcase the lot on Rio Rancho web sites that receive thousands of targeted visitors who are interested in Rio Rancho Land.

I would suggest you ask your broker for assistance. The wording should be simple, easy to understand, with amount and terms addressed. Lastly, call the lender and ask if it meets their guidelines and if title on HUD can give money back to buyers regardless of reason? You didn't specify if allowance is for range, dishwasher, refrig, or ???? Good luck. ... more

Just do what the banks do when they want to determine current value. Ask some agents in the area to perform a BPO, for you. A BPO, is a Broker Price Opinion, performed by Real Estate Agents. Active, Pending and Sold properties with the same attributes are used to determine the value.

Agents please do not state commission rates since this is an anti trust violation. Use statement of X% or less than X%. Don't want to visit you in jail.

I agree with what all the previous responders have said, but Barbara is write your home is competeing against new construction both in size and price, suggest your Realtor do a Realtor tour to get advise from other agents. Are you even getting showings to get feedback on? With all of these things considered it does fall down to Price, Condition, and Location in that order. No one will buy a home, car or anything for that matter that they can get cheaper and newer; think about it would you? ... more

"The Agency" doesn't sell your house - "Your Agent does". Do not make the mistake of thinking listing with this agency or that will matter all that much. The agent representing you is critical. Look for an expderienced agent who talks your language - one you relate to. You are going to become a team so you'd better like and respect each other.
I've worked with two large franchises - currently with one of them now. I love my agency and can say nothing negative about it. The large franchises can offer the agent so much more than a small agency. That may, in turn, offer more to you. But don't just list with a large franchise without checking out the agent first. You could get a brand new, inexperienced person that way.
NOW - big agency vs small agency. Your chances of finding a well trained, experienced agent are usually better with a bigger name. These large agencies usually have a lot of training available and a staff to back up the agent. Listing with the biggest producer in your area may not be the best move either - unless you can be assured that you will be able to relate to (talk to) that agent on a regular basis. Often, The Big Agent is just the leader of the band. You probably won't get the leader (or even the brass section) but an assistant. If you don't mind that - go for it. However, if you want your hand held by the experienced agent you expected you may want to look for a high producing, successful single agent.
SO - does it matter if you list with one of the big franchises or not???
No - You need to find the agent who will do the job you need done - sell your house. That agent may be from a franchise or a small "Boutique" agency. Do your due diligence and check them out.

The good old reset the days on market counter trick...yep we know that one. Maybe try to reset the price, to a lower price, that should help.
