Nick Ringling is the Co-Owner of Vacant Land Club. Nick spent the last decade working in the Industrial Sales space, most recently selling Electrical Supplies and Electrical Engineering Solutions. Three years ago he first heard of vacant land investing through Invest Like a Boss, and took massive action. Since then Nick has left his cushy sales job to buy and sell vacant land full time. So far in 2021, Nick's team is on pace to buy and sell roughly 150 properties, with an average ROI of about 400%. Every one of which was never seen in person prior to purchase. Vacant Land Club brings value to land sellers by offering them quick cash for properties that they no longer see value in. They offer value to buyers by offering easy owner financing that they wouldn’t typically be able to secure from a financial institution. Vacant Land Club is growing and scaling very quickly with potential investment opportunities on the horizon for investors looking for a way to invest passively.
