Frequently Asked Questions

Rush Creek Land is a family-owned property investment company based in Blaine, MN.  We help land owners remove the burden of property ownership by making the sale process quick and easy.

We found your property in the county assessor’s property records.  Every county maintains a public record of all its properties.  This information is available to anyone who asks for it.  We do not share your information with any third parties.

No, there are no fees for working with us.  We pay for all fees related to closing and the sale of the property.

  1. Efficiency:  Using a Realtor to sell land on the MLS often takes 12-18 months to find a real buyer.  We can close in less than 30 days.
  2. Cash Closing:  Traditional sales that involve banks, loans, and underwriting take 30-60 days for a deal to close, if they are approved.  We close with cash and there is no waiting period or approvals required.
  3. No Fees:  Since we purchase land directly from you, there are no realtor or MLS fees, saving you 6-10% on sales commissions.  On top of that, we pay for all the closing costs, which equals more CASH in your pocket.
  4. Back Taxes:  We can usually pay off any back taxes that are owed.  If you sell on the MLS, you will have to pay all back taxes in order to sell.
  5. No Upgrades:  We buy AS-IS, so no improvements are required.
  6. Professionalism:  We hire a professional title company to manage the entire closing process from start to finish.  This ensures that the payment and deed transfer is handled in a professional manner.

We mainly focus on undeveloped land, however, we will consider properties of any size, type, and location.  If you would like to receive an offer for your property, Click Here to submit your information and we will make an offer if it fits our criteria.

We resell most of our properties on the wholesale vacant land market, typically for around 60-70% of retail value.  Depending on the property, we may consider making improvements or holding onto it as a longer term investment.  

Our offers are determined by comparing the property’s estimated retail vs. wholesale value, and then calculating a fair price based on a quick cash sale.  We consider retail value to be the price in which a property would sell on the MLS after being listed for 6-12 months.  Wholesale value is the price in which a property would sell between two land dealers or investors in less than 7 days.  Since we offer to pay for all the closing costs and can provide an immediate sale, our offers are typically priced slightly below the wholesale value.  Note:  If you want to sell for maximum (retail) price, we recommend hiring a Realtor to list your property on the MLS.  A traditional retail sale of this type typically takes 6-18 months to sell. 

You will not have to pay any fees or closing costs.  Our offer amount is the net amount you will earn on the sale. 

One of the biggest benefits of selling to us is we offer to pay 100% of the closing costs and seller’s fees.  Sellers traditionally pay for all closing costs which can include realtor commissions, listing fees, title work, appraisal fees, surveys, property taxes, recording fees, etc.  

In addition, we will never ask you to make any improvements to your property prior to closing.  Some agents will require improvements before even listing your property on the MLS.  We buy land as-is, no questions asked.
