Raleigh, NC: Vacant land and building lots galore! Find it here

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty Arts NC Broker License #235526

You can find almost any sort of lot in Raleigh.  Small building lots, townhome lots, whole subdivision phases, up to and including brownfield transition land.  Commercial?  Sure.  It's out there.

Raw land is a fascinating side to real estate.  Many buyers and sellers think it is "easier" than home sales.  The fact is, in most urban and suburban subdivisions, most planning and zoning issues have been satisfied, and with that work done, the attention turns from the dirt to the "improvement," the home.

Many agents recognize the issues involved in due diligence in land, and decide to let someone else list raw land.  Some agents proceed to list, when in reality they should let someone else take the listing.

Survey, water well, septic requirements, easements, flood plains, stream buffer requirements, stormwater control, zoning issues and myriad other topics must be dealt with before a piece of land is ready to be built on.  And woe to the agent who helps a buyer procure a cheap lot that turns out to be "Unbuildable" due to incurable issues.

I like working land.  It is different.  And interesting.  Often I end up pulling deeds that take me back 70 and 80 years as I search to learn what I am listing or helping someone consider buying.

Mike, I like working land also but you are right you need to know what you are doing. 

By the way for some reason you have some HTML script showing at the top of your blog.

Mike - great idea.  Have you thought of doing an under $50,000 category as well?  Most of the buildable lots/land under $50,000 is in areas like Wendell, Clayton, Fuquay-Varina, and other surrounding areas, but it's sure nice to see it all in one place. 

Great points on buildability - that's one topic we get a lot of questions about!

Thanks, Penny.

Yes, there are several ways to slice it up.  Makes it an ongoing project.

Good Info. I used to get a lot of calls for vacant land, but after doing a lot of research for people, they never bought it. Seems like they realized it's a lot harder than it looks.

Everyone has to dabble at the dream, don't they?
