Buyers - look for Deals
Location is of prime importance in residential real estate, but in land, it's timing. Think about what type of development will occur on the property, how soon, and what permits will be involved. Then gauge the change in market conditions which will be prevalent when you are ready to sell.
One timing issue that you might consider is the IRS' 2-year limitation on deducting business losses against profits in a preceding year. 2006 was the last year many builders made a profit, so they may price their real estate more aggressively to sell by the end of this year and take the loss.
