Great Land Priced to Move Quickly
Birchwood Land Company is a land sales company. We are not brokers. We own every parcel we sell.
What is great for you, is that we sell to individuals as well. By buying right, we are able to pass the savings on to you.
The First Step – Buying Right
Most land for sale is listed on the MLS at full market price. If you’re looking to invest, it takes a LONG time to find anything at a decent price. We know. We’ve tried.
If you are looking to invest in raw land at a steep discount…
We Love Land
Land is the only type of real estate that gets better with age. We love investing in real estate, and especially land.
While holding land as an asset on your balance sheet, it’s pretty nice to be able to hunt, camp, build your dream getaway, or simply plan for that retirement escape. Fun and financially responsible.
You’ll find land investment properties on this site are discounted around 20% to 50% because of our proprietary marketing systems that get in touch with land owners who need to sell their property. Often times they may want to sell because they need the money so our company can help them out by buying their raw land quickly for cash… which is a win-win. Then, we pass the discount along to you.
Yes! Please see the bottom of Property Details where there is a downloadable .kmz file.
Most of our listings have a plat map near the bottom of the Property Details section.
Most of the land investments you’ll find on our site are ones that you’ll never find on the MLS. The MLS is the “Multiple Listing Service” which is where real estate agents list properties for sale. We work directly with the home owners because many times we’re able to help them solve their problem more quickly and cheaper than listing it on the MLS.
Great question. No, we are not agents. We buy land and then sell it. All the properties for sale on BirchwoodLand.com are owned by us. We are not brokers.
If you are pre-approved with a bank and can close quickly, we’ll consider all offers. We also offer in-house financing with the details on the pricing section of each listing.
Mineral rights are typically not included with the parcels we sell.
All parcels are subject to local ordinances and these rules vary widely. We encourage you to call the county directly and ask them. In most counties an RV can be parked on but not lived in and is only allowed as a temporary living quarters if the land owner is in the process of building a permanent structure. This, however, usually requires the land owner to apply for a Building Permit. It should be noted, however, that many counties grant very lengthy building permits and allow you to renew them for equal periods of time even if you haven’t built anything. Put another way, sometimes a Building Permit is an effective way to permanently park an otherwise unlawful vehicle on the land for indefinite periods of time.
No there are not. One of the guarantees that we make to our buyers is that there are no back taxes or liens associated with the land you’re purchasing and at the time of conveyance all taxes are current.
Unless indicated in the headline or description, the rural properties we represent do not have utilities.
While Birchwood Land Company does a great deal of research on the properties we buy and sell, our research is typically limited to making sure we can convey clear title and that there are no back taxes or liens associated with the land. Because we can not anticipate every question we may receive, nor can we know all of the zoning ordinances in any given county (much less multiple counties), we always encourage our buyers to go directly to the source and speak to the people who work in either the Planning & Zoning Office or the Assessor’s Office of that specific county. Those offices’ websites and contact information are provided on each of our listing pages and will be a far more authoritative source of information about what the county does and does not allow then we ever could be.
Yes- but the Property Visit Agreement Form found under the FAQ section must be completed before your visit. We absolutely encourage all prospective buyers to visit the property they’re interested in prior to purchase. We understand that not all buyers are able to do this and this is why we provide photos taken from each property we list along with – in some cases – drone videos. In the absence of being able to physically walk the land prior to purchase, reviewing these photos and videos can be an excellent way to gain insight into what the property, its terrain and surroundings are like.
Birchwood Land Company purchases property for the sole purpose of re-selling it. In the interest of transparency, everything we know about each parcel is disclosed in the listing and nothing is withheld. We do not know additional details, and that is one of the reasons the properties are listed far below the typical market price.
While Birchwood Land Company would never discourage anyone from seeking proper legal counsel, we have done our best to simplify the buying process with straightforward, easy-to-read contracts. Furthermore, land acquisition and resale is not typically a heady or paperwork intensive process and rarely does it involve more than a notary. In fact in our experience, the participation of an agent or attorney is the exception and not the rule when it comes to legally conveying rural vacant land from one party to another. This is yet another reason why our prices are so low.
All this being said, if a buyer feels more comfortable having a professional review the contracts under which they purchase one of our properties, we would never object.
