Default land for sale

the place I hunted has been up for sale about 7 months now. 254 acres for 1.7 mill. I started working for another company and the owner is looking for a ranch closer to Houston. this one is right on the Brazos less than 1.5 miles from 290 if he buys it should I ask the land owner for some kind of commission for the sale? yes, I will still hunt the land. no money was payed from me to hunt the last 4 years. went as a guest and really only shot hogs. did work the fences and ran the tractor mower. built a 8x12 cabin. its not like I just showed up and killed. some tax free cash would be real nice. any thoughts?

I'd just be thankful for having a place to hunt like you did and will continue to do.


Maybe say it in a joking way and see what happens.

Be thankful and hope for the same opportunity on the next place. If you feel you're owed more you should rethink hunting there until a discussion is had about compensation for work.

it would be a gift? even that I payed nothing to hunt, I worked the land one weekend a month. the cabin cost about 1,900.00 and it stays. built feeders and blinds. trucked in many loads of used brick and fill material for the wash outs. but feel unsure if the "gift" is needed. the sign out front say brokers welcome.

I would ask for a finders fee from the seller. Maybe 10k

Wouldn't hurt

We bought our first house that way, from someone who brought us to the showing. She got a $500 gift card from the builder. But it was a 100k house not 1.5

I would be very happy with 1000.00 I shot one doe 2 years ago. its not about greed on my part. just question about is it normal to receive some thing for helping sell the land?

If you brought me a buyer for a 1.5mil piece of property I had for sale, I would be more than happy to toss 10 grand your way after closing for a finder's fee.

You canít ask for ďa giftĒ I think it would be waranted of them to offer one but I donít think you should ask for payment unless you worked out a deal for payment prior to bringing a buyer.

Trying to wrap my mind around you even feeling like you are in a place to ask for anything. You be thankful for the past hunts. Your work was for trade for those seasons.

if you go to Austin from Houston, on 290 just before the bridge on the Brazos. the ranch on the right with the 300 white Brahma cows on it. just across the river the land is his ranch. 80% cleared for cows. two tanks. 20 acre hay field. county road right up to the gate. a ranch not but 2 miles from this one is 900 acres and they want $5,800 acre.

Illegal, you can’t get a cut without a license. Unless you get the property under contract, and then assign your option to buy the property to your end buyer. It gives you equitable interest. I have sold several parcels of land in this manner, but I was working directly through the owners and buyers...technically you can do it with a broker involved. But not going to be an easy sell, and you better be real good buddies with the new buyer.

If I could find a place to hunt where I've hunted and never had to pay, only help do work which would be any piece of land or lease, there's always work to be done. And it was going to be sold but you would still be allowed to hunt without still paying....Id keep my mouth shut and a smile on my face, and give the new landowner my number on speed dial in case they needed anything done anything! You have a good deal it seems like so don't ruin it. Hunt and be happy. They consider you a friend I'm sure and have you out so everyone can have a good time and stuff gets done. I let some friends dove hunt at my place once a yr, but when they're there, we all get together and knock out what's needed. Realize what you got before you possibly overstep your boundaries and ruin a sweet deal for yourself. I say this in the best way possible too. Just think it thru. I wouldn't ask for a dime. I'd ask to be there when they close so you can drink a beer and help them celebrate and move in or out.

I don't see the issue. He's simply thinking if he should ask for a small cut if he brings the seller a buyer. Nothing wrong with that as he's not acting like he's owed something.

It's not "tax free" regardless.

But one thing I've learned in my dealings over the years, unless you get something in writing in advance, you probably don't have it and that ship has sailed. Guy could be nice and throw you a little shout out, but I certainly wouldn't expect it.
