Top Tricks for Finding Available Land

Finding Available Land For A New HomeFinding the right land for your new home is an important part of building. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you get started.

When you are searching for available land for your manufactured or modular home, you may feel a bit lost. Finding land or lots to build on isn’t quite the same as finding a home. Some areas of land may look great in a picture but then need extensive clearing and leveling before building. Palm Harbor Homes has extensive experience in seeking out the best lots to place a home. We are happy to share the knowledge we have acquired over decades of experience. Here are Palm Harbor Homes’ top tricks for finding available land.

Look Online

An easy and fast way to find empty lots is to look online. Several popular home search websites such as Zillow and Trulia have options only to see lots or land available for purchase. Looking online is a great opportunity for you to price lots in a particular area as well as getting an idea of the worth of other homes located in the neighborhood. The only downside to being online is there may not be a lot of information about the land, its condition, or pictures of the land in its entirety. If you are interested in a particular parcel, contact the real estate agent and schedule a meeting to look at it in person.

Check Foreclosure Auctions

It isn’t uncommon for people to purchase large parcels of land and then realize they have bitten off more than they can chew before even building anything on the property. Check your local foreclosure auctions for discounted property. While you may have a bit of extra paperwork to fill out, you can enjoy some large savings.

Talk to a Real Estate Agent

Local real estate agents are a great resource for scoping out available land in an area. Let them know what you are looking for. If the agent can’t find anything on the market right now, they can keep an eye out for you if they find a parcel that they think would be a great fit.

But our number one tip to find available land for your manufactured or modular home, is to contact your local Palm Harbor Homes model center. Call 1-888-466-3718 to speak to one of our friendly customer representatives about available land in your area.
