I want to sell my land

Asked by Monica, Strongsville, OH Fri Jul 25, 2008

I have a little over an acre I want to sell to the developer behind me. There is a housing development right where my woods end. The city told me that this guy has future plans that include mine and my neighbors properties. He already bought one of the properties because he bought the house at an auction, split the land, kept what he wanted and is now selling the house. He plans to build a culdesac back there and only offered me 32K for over an acre. According the the realtors I've spoken to, the land in this area is worth over double that. I'm ready to sell but I want what it's worth. How do I approach this guy and tell him he's not being at all reasonable? A half an acre around here is going for 60-70K.

This person is looking to make money on your property. Do not take less than market value. I work in Strongsville, the value depends on which development (Waterford, Westwood, for example) , and the expected market values of the homes. Which developer? You can feel free to contact me with more questions. I think I may be able to help you get more money. 440-572-1200. Mandria Pisek

Easy--List the land with a Realtor at the market rate. If he wants it he can make an offer like anyone else.
