about selling your land in North Carolina

When it comes to selling land you've owned for a long time we know there can be a lot of questions that come up. We've spoken with many land owners who have had questions just like you and posted the most frequently asked questions about selling land in North Carolina here.

A: Land contracts are similar to home buying contracts, but we make it even easier for you because we buy with cash, removing the hassle of banks from the process. We use a standardized form (Form 12-T) provided by the North Carolina Associate of Realtors and the North Carolina Bar Association. This contract documents the terms of purchase and sale of your land and helps to protect both parties in the event that the sale or purchase must be terminated. We do NOT use assignable or unofficial contracts at Slate Land Buyers, we are always the end buyer and will never assign your contract to another buyer. We also use a Closing Attorney that is experienced with land contracts, providing a simple, quick and easy closing process for you!


A: It depends! Each plot of land is different so we use public records, FEMA maps, topography data and dozens of other data points to make sure we’re offering you what your land is worth. Unlike other land buyers, we do our own research and compile an offer that is unique to your lot.


A: At Slate Land Buyers we cover all taxes and other closing costs associated with the sale of your land. There are never any hidden costs or fees when selling your land to us.

A: Because we are a direct buyer, the only documents you’re required to submit when selling land to us are filled out and signed copies of both the land purchase contract and a mineral, oil and gas disclosure which we provide. We have designed our process to be as simple and straightforward as possible, once both parties are in agreement on the offer we do the heavy lifting when it comes to the paperwork and will guide you through these few documents that you need to provide.

A: Working with a company experienced in buying land is generally the easiest way to sell your land quickly. Experienced land buyers, like Slate Land Buyers, can help you navigate the land selling process and ensure you get the best price for your land. We don’t charge you any fees or commissions like a realtor would, meaning you won’t have any out of pocket expenses which ensures you get every dollar that your land is worth.
