I'm looking to buy a couple of acres to build a house. Looking in the towns of Denmark, Harrisburg, Martinsburg, Pinckney and in the Lowville School District. I have looked in the NNYMLS and haven't seen much there.

Thanks

Have you tried going to individual real estate sites in the area.... www.newzjunky.com has listings and also listings of realtors for the area.

1. If you start a google for one of the places, say Denmark, with the name Trulia after it (make sure to use the state New York) the Trulia website comes up. From there you can change the towns right in the search bar. Trulia is a "clearing house" from all sorts of sources.

For comparison, NNYMLS had 7 properties listed (both homes and land) and Trulia had 13 properties listed.

2. Try using google and put in the string "For Sale By Owner". FSBO websites will come up. Only people that advertise on this site will be listed, unlike the Trulia "clearing house" that takes from all sorts of places.

3. If you google "land for sale Lewis County, New York" you'll get all sorts of websites. Some realtors don't list all their properties on NNYMLS (!) so if you scour all the googled sites you'll get just about anything advertised from them. I know there are places that deal mostly with just Land.

4. YOu can try craigslist, too.

Take good notes and you'll be on your way.

Thanks for the ideas. I've taken a look at them and are not coming up with anything new. I'm hoping to find someone who is interested in selling off a few acres from who might currently not have it up for sale.

Good Morning Realty has listed several lots just outside of Lowville on the Markowski Rd. The lots have drilled wells so water shouldn't be a problem for you.

Thanks, I did see them but we can not live in the Town of Lowville due to work districts.

Where is it located? Is it listed? We're looking for a 4 bedroom and something on the newer side.
