When looking in a subdivision looks as though there may be a vacant lot. How do you find out?

My husband and I are looking for residential lots with in a certain area and do not want to buy a piece of land in a new construction neighborhood if in fact there are lots out there that people would be willing to sale. Most of the time there is no address and other then driving by to confirm it is vacant how do you get information on the site?

You will probably have to go through a realtor. If there is no address you would have to know the legal description. You might try the tax assessor for the county you are searching for to see if they can help with some type of list.

In most cases a Realtor is the best answer to that question.  We have the capabilities to find the owner of any piece of land in the area in just a matter of minutes, the harder part is getting ahold of the owner.  If the subdivision is newer, many times the developer or a builder may own it.  If it is an established neighborhood and you do not wish to consult a Realtor, then I would start with a neighbor, they "always" know what is going on.

An agent can look it up through their map function on the MLS, looking at the parcels and then using the tax records to identify owner, size, dimensions and other information.

A realtor will be able to find out any information for you a lot faster than you probably can or would want to spend time researching. Another good idea I've used in the past with success is to go to a neighbor and ask them who owns the property. A lot of the time, they might own it, or they will know who does.

This is another old question.

I would go to the town office. Ask to look at their property tax map. You will see every single property in town listed. Once you know the map and lot number you can ask who owns it and write to them.

A realtor would be happy to find the tax information on any property with no obligation.  However, if you decide to purchase the property, use the realtor that looked up the information for you.

Good question, you can pull taxes on the area by going to the local court house or you can call your local Realtor and ask for assistance.

Jodi's Zillow suggestions are great but to be 100% certain it would be best to consult a Realtor. Good luck.

There may be a better way but this will work to search on Zillow if the property is for sale.

1. Make sure you have the city pulled up that the land is in.
2. Uncheck all of the search boxes except Lots/Land
3. Cick the map to zoom in and click and drag the map to the area that the land is in. (If you have an address of an adjacent property that will be more helpful.)

If the property is not listed for sale or you have trouble finding the information you can always find out who the owner is by researching the address in tax records. (google is a great way to look for addresses). A Realtor could help you find the type of property you are looking for.
