First of all you need to be priced correctly.This can be difficult and will require the assistance of an experienced Realtor or an Appraiser. Base your price on the comparable "solds" not currently "active" listings. Many active listings will NEVER sell and are priced incorrectly, so don't make this common error. Your best bet is find a Realtor with a track record in raw land sales who has local knowledge and also national marketing power to get you exposure to buyers who will be relocating to your area. Ask them to document their land sales experience and don't hesitate to ask them for references from past and current clients. You may need to consider increasing the amount of commissions offered to the Realtor bringing in the Buyer (Buyer's Agent) to make your offering the most attractive for them to show. In our market this would mean moving from a 6% to a 7% gross commission; with 4% offered to the Selling Side. Realtors receive no pay until transactions close and like any business person Realtors are appreciative of increased pay for their services.
Finally, be sure that your land is properly SIGNED and visibly for sale. Keep it trimmed, mowed, bush-hogged and free of brush, trash, and debris with fence rows clear. If it looks like it has little value to you then it will have little value to potential Buyers. Along with signage be sure that you have a committment from your Realtor to advertise your listing. Land sales bring in smaller commission amounts and some will cut corners by not advertising land.

It is all based on marketing for your property, the more exposure you have the better off you are. Do you have an agent that can post in MLS? that increases your opportunity.

list it with a Missouri realtor in the area that the land is located in, however with an email address like yours, it sounds like a spamming email address, so I would get a different email address first so you come across as more creditable before you talk to someone and quite frankly I would start by contacting the real estate offices directly rather than waiting for them to contact me if you are serious..

I agree with Dale Weir. List your property with a local REALTOR who will work for you.
