My guess is that vacant land home may be a lot where an old house once stood, but it is not habitable or has been removed. You could check with your local building office and they might be able to tell you.

Just because it says vacant land, doesn't mean it can be built on. Just some things to consider are zoning (shore-land, etc) , deed restrictions, conservation reasons (endangered species,vernal pools), set backs, etc. This is a great reason to hire a Realtor to assist you in finding land that is build-able.

What can be built will substantially depend on the Zoning.  Unfortunately, Zillow doesn't provide Zoning data on this site, so you would need to go to the county records office to get that data.

The vacant land listed for sale on Zillow is supposed to be zoned for residential use, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it is.  And even if it is, there is all kinds of different zoning designations for different residential areas.

And one also needs to consider access and utilities.  It could be quite expensive to build if it doesn't have access, and/or the utilities are no where near by.

Land on Zillow is sometimes described as "vacant land home".

WHERE do you see that ? A 'home' is an improvement on vacant land so you really cant have both unless you're a gopher.
