Great question! When it comes to residential properties, it seems like you can always find listings, but with vacant land it’s a little harder. So we like these 4 resources you can use to find farm and land investments in Illinois…
4 Resources You Can Use To Find Farm And Land Investments In Illinois
Resource #1. Word Of Mouth
One great but often overlooked resource is simply word of mouth. Reach out to your network – at work, among your friends and family, and on social media – and ask them if anyone knows of any available vacant land or farm land for sale. They say that everyone knows 200 people, so if you ask 200 people and you’ll be sourcing from tens of thousands of people… and someone probably knows of a piece of land for sale!
Resource #2. Internet
The internet is a powerful place with a lot of information at your fingertips. There may or may not be a specific website dedicated to the kind of land you want in the specific Illinois area you’re looking, but if you search “vacant land in Illinois” or “investment land in Illinois” or “farm land for purchase in Illinois” you’ll probably find many leads that you can follow up.
Resource #3. Real Estate Agent
Ask your local real estate agent if they’re aware of any vacant land for sale. If they don’t know of any right away, they’ll have access to a network of agents who can probably source the land for you. (Just be aware, though, that you may have to pay more for this land because of the agent’s help, versus any land you find on your own.)
Resource #4. Chicago Property Deals!
