When you’re buying, selling or exchanging land, you have many significant issues to consider. That’s because each land transaction is unique, and considerably more complex than residential real estate. Whether you’re interested in purchasing a ranch, a recreational property or doing a 1031 Exchange, you’ll get the best results if you engage a land specialist with proven expertise. That is where you look for an Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation. It takes years of specialized education and real transaction experience to earn this coveted award and that is why there is only a small percentage of real estate practitioners who have this designation.
An ALC can give you better price analysis for both buyers and sellers by tapping into their extensive network of contacts and attending marketing sessions and they know the dynamics driving value. They have specialized land knowledge regarding 1031 Exchanges, estate planning and can advise you on navigating through water rights and financing.
You can be confident that when you ask for and ALC, you’re working with a land professional who abides by a strict code of ethics and holds your best interest as their number one goal. You’ll have peace-of-mind knowing that the largest investment or sale you may ever make is in the hands of a qualified expert. An expert with proven knowledge and skill.
