Land Brokers Help Find a Purpose for Vacant Land
Land brokers often work toward gaining the rights of way for land for commercial purposes, so if a somebody wants to buy land he or she can earn money on, a land broker is the person who gets the deal done.
Land Broker Responsibilities
What are some of the responsibilities of land brokers? A broker typically looks for acquisition opportunities and identifies a property’s disposition– they’re often called to be the public affairs liaison between, say, the company they’re representing and a local municipal governmental entity in charge of a specific area or piece of land. Indeed, land brokers often keep track of the land in their region, knowing details about various parcels. If and when they have to evaluate a piece of land, they have to take into account things like wildlife protection, hazardous waste disposal and required permits. With that in mind, they’re generally familiar with local land ordinances and zoning issues.
Land brokers may deal with different types of land. They might specialize in farms and ranches, undeveloped tracts, subdivisions and lot wholesaling, etc.
