Your amounts don't fully add up. 75k vs 76k (3+73).

I would think the following transactions should take place, since the sale does not actually occur until 2/15/21

December 2020 Entry
(Dr) Cash --------------- 3,000
(Cr) Unearned Rev -- 3,000

2/15/21 Entry
(Dr) Cash ------------------- 73,000
(Dr) Unearned Rev ------ 3,000
(Dr) Loss on disposal -- xxx (if there is one)
(Cr) Land ------------------- xxx (book value of land)
(Cr) Gain on sale -------- xxx (if there is one)
