Land Acquisitions

TrustLand will purchase rural properties statewide. We are actively looking to increase our holdings in farmland, timberland (both pine and hardwood), recreational properties (especially waterfront), rural residential and urban fringe tracts.

Once we are contacted with a purchase opportunity, we will begin our evaluation process of your property. We prepare a detailed land analysis that enables us to determine if the property fits our investment criteria. In this business, the investor with the best land analysis is usually the Buyer!

In addition to whole (Fee) property purchases, we are seeking investments in undivided interests, lease hold interests, leased fee positions or owner-financed land loans.  We pride ourselves in innovative transactions. Nothing is too complicated!

For more information, contact Clay Cook, Colt James or John Dean at 318-442-5263.

Frequently Asked Questions

What information does TrustLand need to buy my property?

To begin our process, we need a legal description of the property you wish to sell, a copy of your original deed, a plat of survey or even your most recent tax notice will get us started.

Next, it is very helpful if you can give us a brief, physical description of your property.

Finally, we need to know your asking price for the property. We will not begin our purchase process without a known asking price.

How long will it take TrustLand to respond to our offer to sell?

We will begin discussions immediately with the first contact. Usually, we can make an offer in less than two (2) weeks.

Once a price has been agreed upon and a written contract has been signed by all parties, how long will it take to close?

After a written "Purchase Agreement" has been signed by all parties we typically close in 30 to 45 days.
