I have sold a number of lots to builders in the past years and I drove around, finding new construction and got the fax#'s of those builders. I then mad eup a flyer and faxed everyone at the same time.
As to Multi-family. It sounds like a pretty small lot for multi family. You have to see what the zoning and setbacks are for that lot.
For example, my neighborhood’s setbacks are 30’ in the front and 7’ on each side. If it’s a corner lot the setback would be 15’ on the street side. That would not leave a lot of room for a multi-family on that lot, maybe a duplex.
You say, that there’ re apartments, that are equivalent on the same size of lots. Keep in mind the age of those dwellings, since the setback may have been established afterwards and the dims on those houses are ‘grandfathered’.
Not trying to discourage you, but just make you awar eof some issues you have to think about.
I would find some of those owners of new constructions and tell them, that you have an angle on a lot with these particular dimensions and whether they would be interested? Don’t give them the address, of course.
