Run… Now… to the houses on that street that are NOT listed with an agent/broker. Get an “Option to Purchace” at the present, fair market value, from all all of the owners who will sell to you.
While your at it, concider making offers on the houses on the next street(s) over (the ones that back up to these newly listed houses) because commercial lots are often more usefull (read valuable) if they are deep lots.
Check with a Realtor or the courthouse to find out the MAILING addresses of the listed property owners. Some of them might be out of town or out of state, motovated owners.
Good Luck… Keep us informed.
