Who Pays When Selling Land In Phoenix

Are you thinking about selling land in Phoenix? If so then you might be wondering this common question: who pays when selling land in Phoenix. In this article, we’ll reveal the surprising answer.

When people think of selling land, they think of handing over the deed and accepting a check for the property. Makes sense. At first you might think that the buyer pays the seller. But that’s not really how it works and you might be surprised at who pays when selling land in Phoenix

Who Pays When Selling Land surveying

If you’re the seller, you’ll have to pay first! You’ll probably have to pay for a survey or a site analysis, or for a geologist to look at your property and tell you what potential it has.

Then you’ll work with a real estate agent to try and sell the property. There will probably be additional expenses that you’ll have to cover while the agent tries to find a buyer. For example, you’ll have to pay any mortgage, bills, taxes, and insurance on the property in the months that the agent is looking for a buyer.

When an agent finds a buyer, then you may need to work with a lawyer, a title company, and potentially others as well to complete the paperwork. Yes, YOU are paying for all of this the entire time.

Once the paperwork is complete, you will get the money for the property – after your mortgage is paid off and any liens are taken care of). That money might either come from the buyer themselves (if they’re paying cash) or it might come from the buyer’s bank (if the buyer had to get a mortgage to buy the properties).

But your paying is not over yet! Once it’s all said and done, you’ll also have to pay the agent’s commission… and that typically comes out of your pocket.

So, to answer the question, “who pays when selling land in Phoenix,” the answer is that you’ll pay over and over and the buyer or their bank will pay you once.

A lot of sellers are realizing that this is not the best way to sell, especially if you don’t have the cash in hand to cover those expensive up-front costs. Sure, it’s nice to gamble on the possibility of getting a higher selling price (although you might not get what you’re asking for the land); it’s no wonder why so many sellers are looking for a faster way to sell land – by getting a fast cash offer and bypassing all of the costly and complicated steps, above.
