I’ve been working with various real estate brokers to find land to build on. One in Indiana hasn’t found anything great but she’s still looking. Indiana was attractive to me because property taxes are only 1/3rd of Illinois. Still, I’m struggling to find land there because I’m a little late to this idea.
I have a broker in Illinois I’ve been working with as well. She’s been great and I’ve met up with her a couple of times to look at lots around St Charles. The second time I saw a particular piece of land, I fell in love with it. It was 8 acres though. Still it was at the end of a cul da sac on a slope and hidden from the road. Just a half mile from a main road. I obviously couldn’t afford to buy the whole lot so inquired about breaking it up. Man was I excited!
My broker Kathy told me later that the lot was zoned for four 1.9 acre lots. Bigger than I need but I wanted one. Any of them.
Unfortunately, the owner of these lots is a trust and they have not responded to multiple requests. We are moving on though that is incredibly frustrating. My expectations have been set now. I will settle for nothing less. Yes, I want to build the house and move in but the land has to feel right.
The search goes on.
