Hi RebeccaH7 -

Please make use of Zillow's search filters to look for lots/lands for sale in a specific neighborhood, area or location. Please follow these instructions to set the parameters of your search:
 
1. Search for the address. Once signed in simply type in the address or location in the search field.
2. Once on the search page, make use of the search filter located at the top of the page. To narrow the search result to lots/land only, click on the "more" drop down tab, look for the "Home type:" option then check the "Lots/Land" and then apply. Results of lots will be displayed at the right hand side of the page.

Here is also link on How to search for home.

You can also visit our Zillow Help Center for other helpful information.

Thank you.

In important aspect to know about buying vacant land is that most companies won't lend on vacant land.  Banks and credit unions will some times lend on build lots.  The lot needs to be "stubbed", meaning ready access for utilities without adding lines to bring utilities to the lot.  Without this the loan may not happen.  Also, many build lots have CC&Rs that require the owner of the lot to build a house or building with certain minimum requirements within a certain amount of time.  Good luck lot hunting!

Great Idea's certainly to have a Realtor set you up on a Land Search via MLS, as well as checking with local authorities or auctions (good Realtors can assist you with local auction sights that might add to the mix).

I will mention however that bank pre approval for a land purchase is difficult. Banks and mortgage companies may agree to loan against land if your loan application shows you've done your homework. Prepare a concept package showing your vision and how you expect to pay back the loan once development has occurred, Obtain design plans, etc. Additional collateral guaranteeing the loan may be required, and the interest rate might be higher than the market reflects for home financing.

Hope this helps, Best Wishes!

Good afternoon !

Another great idea, is to have an agent set you up a search for land, that meets your criteria, that can be emailed to you. That way you can look through the list at your convenience. This is done, at no charge to you and can be set up immediately. Also, the agent can recommend a good mortgage company, if needed, to get you an instant pre-approval, so that when you find that lot you want, you are ready to put a contract on it.

If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Go to your local assessors office/tax office and find out when and if they are having land sales/ sheriff sales in the area you are looking to pruchase.

Hope that helps!
