With our reputation among New York land owner community, We’re building a pretty good list of wholesale NY land for investing and if you’re a:

We have NY raw land, lots, vacant land, and empty land – whether for recreational, development or for personal use, there has never been a better place to buy wholesale land in New York as an investment.
Q: Why are these prices so low?
We provide solutions for landowners and buyers in the state of New York with our proprietary marketing systems that get in touch with landowners who need to sell their property and we help them out by buying their raw land quickly for cash… which is a win-win. Then, we pass the discount along to you… which is a win-win for everyone!
Q: Who owns theses properties?
A: Unless otherwise stated, all properties for sale are property of WeSellNewYorkLand.com which is owned and operated by Surplus Asset Specialists, Inc. a real estate investment company.
Q: Can I visit the property before buying?
A: YES, we highly recommend that you drive by anytime and inspect the property before you buy it. You should also check with the respective county on the zoning and approved uses of the property.
Particularly, the County Planning and Zoning Department. They will be able to provide information about the current and future development plans for the area. We cannot provide suggestions, or advice with regards to your purchase and you should do your due diligence on property condition, the zoning and approved uses of the property.
Q: What kind of New York land do you have available?
A: We specialize in land that is vacant and undeveloped. Some of our property may have service (i.e. sewer, water, power, etc.) and some of our property may be completely raw (i.e. no sewer, water, power, etc.). We offer both since different New York investors want different things. We’ll let you know what is available with each property.
Q: How are these properties different from ones I’d find on the MLS?
A: Great question!, The MLS is the “Multiple Listing Service” which is where New York real estate agents list properties for sale. Most of the land investments you’ll find on our site are ones that you’ll never find on the MLS.
We work directly with the landowners because many times we’re able to help them solve their problem more quickly and cheaper than listing it on the MLS.
Q: What GUARANTEES do you offer?
A: Another great question. We guarantee that the property is being sold “As-Is” and is free and clear of any governmental or private liens or encumbrances other than recurring assessments or bonds. However, we cannot provide suggestions, or advice with regards to your purchase and we recommend that all buyers do their due diligence on each property’s condition, back taxes, and liens prior to buying.
Q: Are there any liens on the properties?
A: No. We guarantee a free and clear marketable title on all properties we sell. Again, we cannot provide suggestions, or advice with regards to your purchase and we recommend that all buyers do their due diligence on property title, condition, the zoning and approved uses of the property.
Q: How do I make an offer on a property?
A: Simple, Buyers can either click on the “Secure With Deposit” Button and pay instantly by credit card or secure bank payment (EFT), send us an email or give us a call. We take offers first come first serve… and clicking on the “Secure With Deposit” Button tends to be the quickest.
Once you place your deposit, this secures your offer on that property and we’ll email you instructions for you follow and then call you to answer any of your questions so you feel 100% comfortable and confident in your decision.
Q: Can I back out from a sale?
A: All deposits are fully refundable within 48 hours. However, All sales are final because of the associated costs with the transferring the deed to property in question and that it is being sold “As-Is“.
We ask that you do your research and due diligence before you purchase any of the properties listed on our website. Also remember that you will need to have the down payment for the property purchase available on the agreed upon date.
Q: Do you charge any fees to me as a buyer?
A: When you buy an New York investment property from us, There is a one time document fee of $500.00 for each property purchased. This fee covers eventual document transfer fees charged by the respective counties, a recording fee of the Sale Agreement, as well as the setup cost for the loan servicing.

Q: Is there any fees for paying off a property early?
A: No. Our loans are open and you can pay off your property loan at any time with no pre-payment penalty at all. Just contact us at any time and we will let you know your current balance.
Q: Once the property is paid off, what kind of deed do you convey the property with?
A: Once a property purchased through us is paid off, transfer of title occurs exclusively using quitclaim deed unless otherwise stated on the property listing you would like to purchase.
Q: When do I get the deed to my property?
A: Once you pay for a property in full, your title to the property will be conveyed via special or limited warranty deed or quitclaim deed within thirty (30) business days.
If a loan was paid off, the Loan Servicing agency will inform the seller of such pay-off. In case of a cash sale, loan servicing agency will inform the seller that a cash sale has occurred. In both cases, the seller commits to signing all paperwork necessary to transfer ownership and deliver a deed to the recorder/clerk of the county the property is located.
In addition you will receive copies of the notarized deed via mail so you can have proof that the seller has issued the deed to you. After the recording of the original deed is completed the county recorder/clerk will then return it directly to you. Depending on the County it may take 4-14 weeks (depending on the county) for the county recorder/clerk to mail the recorded deed back to you.
