As you now, foreclosures over the past 5 years have been at record levels. Just like with anything, when there’s an opportunity or when there’s people in pain… the dishonest and unscrupulous people in the world tend to come out of the dark shadows to prey on home owners who don’t know any better.
Foreclosure scams in Atlanta have even picked up in recent years.
We’ve been working with land owners for some time now, in fact we talk with land owners in foreclosure every single week. You should hear some of the stories we’ve heard of people in foreclosure being taken advantage of by scam artists proclaiming to be reputable “real estate investors”.
Not All “We Buy Land” Companies Are Created Equal
You’ve seen those signs that say “We Buy Land”… or websites like ours that mention the phrase. Yes, we buy land in Atlanta and I’ll walk you through how to spot potential scams vs. reputable land buyers in our area.
As a quick summary… there are companies out there that buy land from people who need to sell. But, in some cases… that’s where the similarities from the scam investors and legitimate companies with great reputations like us stop.
In this article I’m going to walk you through some of the ways a small percentage of people try to take advantage of land owners like you.
This is meant to be a “consumer awareness” guide to help you spot the companies to avoid and pinpoint the “we buy land” companies that you can trust (because the majority of land buyers are great people with great integrity… it’s those few bad apples that ruin it for everyone else.)
Do Your Homework And Do Business With Someone You Can Trust
We buy land in Atlanta and help people in foreclosure each and every week. So we know the market well and have seen lots of dishonest things happen to land owners who were duped by a scammer before they found us.
What we always say is to do your homework. Ask any “we buy land” company lots of questions before you do business with them to make sure that they’re real, that they’re honest, and that they can and will follow through with any offer they make you. Some investors make lots of offers and back out on the ones they don’t have the money to close on. With WebuylandAtlanta.com, we only make offers on properties that we know we can close on if our offer is accepted… no if’s and’s or buts.

Or, if you’re looking to sell your land fast, we’d love to chat with you… learn about your situation and your house… and make you a fair all-cash offer within 24 hours of our talk. We can close in as little as 7 days. The beauty of the whole thing is that we’ll make you an offer and there’s no obligation, no pressure, and no catches… you get the offer, you take as long as you want to look over, pass the offer by those you trust, even shop the offer around to the other “we buy land” companies if you want. We’ll be here for ya and you can get started whenever is right for you.
