Frequently Asked Questions
How much will
I receive for my property?
every seller asks us this question. The price we pay for your property
will depend on many variables. A few of the most important factors are
the size and location of the parcel and the distance to utilities. Many
times, sellers have not seen their property for many years, so it is necessary
for us to do extensive research before making an offer to purchase
it. This may extend the amount of time you have to wait for an offer,
but it could also increase the offer significantly if your parcel has specific features.
long will it take to sell my property to Land Research Foundation?
us to request an offer and we will send it out to you in about a week. After
we mail the offer to you and you accept it, we order a copy of the deed
where you took title to the property. This takes approximately four weeks, but
if you can provide us with a copy of the deed we will be able to send
you your paperwork in just a few days. We send you check just a few days
after recieving the signed and notorized deed back from you.
did I receive a letter in the mail from Land Research Foundation?

years, and we are buying property from private parties who are tired of
