Many Ways To Find Land For Sale In Colorado
An investment in land is a smart investment. There are many reasons why you might want to acquire a piece of land – perhaps you’re looking to use it for your own personal use – from farming to recreation to retiring, or maybe you’re looking to develop it as an investment that you hope to eventually profit from.
You might be looking for raw land; maybe you’re searching for farmland or empty land, or perhaps finding recreational acreage for sale in Colorado is your goal.
Whatever type of land to look for, here’re our 4 sources of places you should look.
#1. Finding Acreage For Sale In Colorado In Classifieds Ads
Classified ads in the print version of your local newspaper or local real estate magazines could be a great option as well. Especially if you’re looking for land for sale near you.
Just start searching through their classifieds to make a shortlist of land for sale in Colorado – specifically the area or radius you’re looking in. You won’t get a lot of detail from the ad but it may tell you how big it is and how much it costs.
You especially want to do this exercise when you’re looking on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. Type in “Colorado land for sale” or “acreage for sale in Colorado” and a bunch of listings will come up. You can make note roughly of how much the price is depending on the acreage, and if the property has any utilities or other notable features like road access or wooded areas, things like that.
#2. Finding Acreage For Sale In Colorado By Asking
Don’t forget the old “tried and true” method of finding something for sale… by asking for it. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, right?
You can ask your friends and family, post on social media, tap into a network of real estate investors (which you might find at a local real estate investing association), or just ask everyone you meet – from your dentist to your dry cleaner. Just ask!
You never know what you might find. And even if the person you ask doesn’t own the land, they may know someone who does.
Of course, you can always ask us 😉! Just pick up the phone and call us at (313) 349-0434 and see what we have available. Think of us as your “on-call” real estate network for Colorado land!
#3. Finding Acreage For Sale In Colorado By Driving Around
Get in your car and drive. Drive into the rural areas of the state and look for two things: first, look for “For Sale” signs that owners may have posted on their land; second, look for land you like and then approach the owner and ask to buy it (this really works!)
Driving around can be a time-consuming method but it’s also a great way to get out and enjoy Colorado (bonus tip: bring along your spouse and kids for a fun family outing!)
I’ll admit, with the easability of the internet, “For Sale” signs might not be widely used in your area of Colorado. But getting out and driving around will still help you narrow down what you want in a property (like road access!). It will also help you get a feel for the area, and note environmental surroundings like trees, if the area was affected by a forest fire, stuff that a seller might not think to share with you.
#4. Finding Acreage For Sale In Colorado By Reaching Out To A Land Seller
While the above 3 ways can be useful to find some land, you may not always get the widest options, the most variety, or even the most attractive prices.
