Broken Land Assembly: What You Should Know

Broken Land Assembly: What You Should Know

Broken Land Assembly: What You Should Know by Geraldine Santiago, Realtor

There are 'perfect' land assemblies, and there are 'broken' land assemblies.  A perfect land assembly is an assembly that is an assembled by one lead Realtor and listed with all the owners in the assembly. This type of land assemblies will typically be marketed as a parcel to developers, and it is more sellable and marketable than one that is 'broken'.

A broken assembly is an assembly that has four or five different listing Realtors, in for example, a five lot assembly.  Sure, every home owner has the right to choose their own Realtor.  But from a developer's point of view, this is a 'broken land assembly' because it is much, much harder to deal with. Think of it, the developer will have to deal with five different Realtors, explain the contract and terms five different times, counter with five different Realtors, update five different Realtors with changes, addendums, notices, updates, and more!!! Simply put-- developers just don't have the time to deal with this type of broken assembly as it is very messy, disjointed, and they tend to walk away and go to another site. Developers would much rather have a neat assembly in a nice package with one lead Realtor to deal with.  

How to remedy this situation? The solution would be one is the lead Realtor and the other Realtor of your choice co-lists with that person. It doesn't happen often, but this would be a win-win situation for all. The homeowner can deal with the Realtor with whom they have already dealt with in the past, know and trust and the developer can work with the one lead Realtor who will coordinate with the others and developer.
