Colorado has some of the most beautiful plots of land in the west. This state is well known for its stunning and spectacular landscapes that can include rivers, canyons, deserts, forests, mesas, plateaus, and mountains.
However, even though Colorado is a great place to live and work, you may find yourself with some Colorado land for sale that you no longer need or have use for. In this case, you need to know how best to sell it and what you should take into consideration before you do.
1. Know What You Are Offering
Land in Colorado can vary greatly and therefore have a multitude of ideal purposes. Some lots are great for farming or raising animals whereas other pieces of land may be better suited to residential or commercial buildings. You need to know what category your land best fits before you start advertising it.
A great way to do find out what your land can be used for is to go and check out the zoning guidelines for your lot. This will tell you a lot about what your land can and cannot be used for. To acquire this info, there are a couple of things you can do…
Contact County Offices
You may have to go on google and search for local county offices but you want to contact either something like “County Planning” or the “County Zoning Department.” Reach out to them directly and ask them about your property.
Colorado Department Of Local Affairs
Another thing you can do is go to the CDLA website where a lot of information is housed regarding zoning laws and regulations. According to their website, there are various forms of zoning that are worth reviewing and understanding.
2. Market To The Right Buyers
Now you have some idea as to what your land can be used for, you also know what kind of clients might be interested in purchasing your land. Reaching your target audience is the difference between marketing ice cream to kids on a hot summer’s day and trying to sell ice cream to lactose-intolerant veterans. In order to sell quickly and at a good price you need to target someone who is actually interested.
When writing your ad, try to keep in mind the audience who you want to read it and highlight specific descriptions and benefits that would appeal to them. Additionally, if you are advertising via an online land selling site, you can use very specific subcategories to make it easier for your target audience to find your property.
