3 Tips to Sell Landlocked Property

Landlocked property can be confusing to first-time land buyers and a nightmare for landowners to sell. The term landlocked is used to describe a piece of property that is inaccessible via public thoroughfare and can only be accessed by going through someone else’s land.

Landlocked properties are usually cheap but due to their nature, landlocked properties are repelling for most land buyers, but for some niche investors, landlocked properties are an exciting prospect. For those that are considering purchasing a landlocked property, the good news is that it is possible to gain access to your property.

Pat Porter, broker and owner at RecLand Realty, is in Louisiana on his way to look at a 40 acre landlocked hardwood bottom tract with no legal access. Land agents deal with land access issues all the time, so Pat takes a few minutes to share the three things he tells owners who want to list and sell a landlocked property.
