Land Brokers: Developing a Database of Large Acreage Property Owners

In a recent blog post, “GIS Tools and Applications to Give Land Brokers a Competitive Advantage,” we discussed the unique challenges of a land broker in comparison to a more typical residential real estate broker. We also honed in on the challenges of bringing interested buyers to the listed property in order to explore the property line and all the unique benefits the large acreage property has to offer. But how do land brokers reach out to potential buyers? Where do land brokers find individuals that would be interested in either buying a large acreage property or selling their own large tract of land? When determining which land brokerage company to use for buying or selling a large acreage tract – either for hunting, recreation, harvesting timber or farming, most experts advise buyers and sellers to use the land broker with a large database, or a large marketing reach. But how does a land broker or land brokerage firm build a database of current large acreage land owners?

Land Brokers Use GIS Tools Like the ReportAll Parcel Data

Starting a database of large acreage land owners can be difficult and expensive. Using ReportAll’s online national parcel database is an inexpensive method of gathering owner information and mailing addresses of large acreage land owners across the nation.
