It depends where your lot is located. I'll be building my retirement home in Salton City within the next year. Things seem to be booming there. If they finally get started on stabilizing the Salton Sea, this place will explode. I've held on to my lot for 43 years. I went from being offered $300 to now over $30,000, just in the last year! This stupid state has spent millions of dollars on Mono Lake, which is a totally worthless body of water, just to protect some sea gull eggs from the coyotes, and will let the greatest fishery and retirement area in Calif. die on the vine.

Are the homes really worth the listing price I have seen? What is the latest actual appraised value of a average 3 bedroom home in this area?

From what I see, Salton Sea shores could be flurishing again like before 70 years ago like any other shore line resort, once the sea is cleaned up who knows, I'd hold onto that property if I were you. The mud pots are a fascinating place to visit. Its too bad it smells there and very very swampy and humid, also, is there really valcanic type activity under that area near Red Hill?

Imperial Irrigation District will run power to your lot for about $13.00 a foot from the closest existing power pole plus about $1,000 for any poles that need to be added....if anybody builds a house and gets hooked up between your new pole and the existing one within one year of your pole being installed then IID will give you part of your money back.

Am trying to sell a lot that is part of a probate sale from San Diego. A lady offered $7,000 saying that there is a building moratorium due to lack of city water available. Is this true or just a hustle? This lot could be a really good deal for someone but that sounds really low!

do not sell for less than $25,000. it was worth that 2 years ago and will be worth more in 2 years. i have owned 2 lots for 30 years and i will sell in the next year or two.

chris , you can only get power when your plans are approved& permits issued for construction, water meters cost 10000.oo if plumbing is in the street in front of lot,this doesnt include pluming to faucet or structure,& only once plans are approved & permits acquired. no more power & water on vacant lots except ones already existing . between these cost & land& construction you might look at many foreclosures from 50000.oo newer homes too
