Just Sold – Vacant Lot in North Port FL

To search vacant lots for sale in North Port FL

lotThis 10,000 square foot vacant lot is located off of Sumter Blvd. in the City of North Port. It has a park like view, also a walkway and bicycle trail behind the vacant lot. It is less than a mile to the City Hall of North Port, golfing, restaurants and shopping. It has a quick access to I-75, US 41and Glenallen Elementary School, Lamarque Elementary School, Cranberry Elementary and North Port High School.  The just sold –Vacant lot was listed for $4,900 and sold for $4,500

The seller of the vacant lot was from the Caribbean Islands. According to the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (“FIRPTA”) the seller is a “foreign person” as defined by FIRPTA, Section 1445 of the Internal Revenue Code requires to withhold 10% of the sold price from the seller and remit the withheld amount to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) unless an exemption applies. The seller can apply from the IRS for a refund.

The buyers of the vacant lot are from North Port, Florida. They were recommended to do the following feasibility studies to determine whether the vacant lot was suitable for their use.

1.       Soil boring test

2.       Percolation test

3.       Survey

4.       Environmental audit and/or inspection for scrubjay and gopher turtle.

5.       Review of all governmental agency planning and zoning requirements and building permit requirements

6.       Confirmation of land use and access.

Finally, closing was completed and the buyers walked away happy and satisfied. I had both sides of the transaction. However the seller was quite unhappy with the 10% withheld by the IRS.

Kwee, congratulations on the sale (both sides), and nice of you to let us know about the withholding.   I had a foreign buyer last year, and will need to remember this fact when/if she decides to sell.

Kwee congratulations on the sale of the vacant land.  I like the way you mentioned the recommended tests when purchasing vacant land, as welll as what the seller needed to do as far as the IRS was concern.

Contratulations on the sale of the lot, Kwee!  It is unfortunate about the 10% but that is the way it goes!
