Land sold online draws demand

Land selling on the online platform is exceeding sellers' expectations by 10% to 15%. Land advertised for 60 days then selling online brings the most return — often with more than 100 bids from dozens of bidders. According BigIron Realty, this is because of transparency and added market exposure.
