Need help for a friend in selling large acreage in VA
Hi, everyone. A friend of mine inherited a lot of property following the death of her aunt. Unfortunately, it was a very complicated estate, and her aunt didn't leave a well drawn up will, so it has taken several years to settle - universities and and other public institutions involved.
One of the properties she inherited consists of multiple connected parcels in Paris, VA, totaling 54 acres. My friend needs to sell this property to pay off all the taxes and legal fees. However, her realtor is not being overly helpful and it is difficult for my friend to do this long distance - her health issues mean that she can't just fly out there.
IMHO, the house that is on the property is a tear-down, and I have told her so. Unfortunately, most of the photos on the website are of the house, which I don't think is very helpful.
Sorry for rambling on, but could those of you who are familiar with dealing with acreage take a look and let me know if you have any better suggestions for marketing this property?
