Finding land for sale by owner involves scouring real estate ads such as those on Craigslist. Websites such as Land for Sale by Zip allow users to narrow locations by ZIP code and find land that is for sale by owner.
Potential land buyers can also search out areas using LandWatch, a website built around owner-financed land for sale. The queries here allow purchasers to search by location or price.
Land owners who do not want to use a real estate agent often advertise in the local newspaper or put signs up along the land that is for sale. Land seekers should drive around town and look for these signs.
