I would question that tax amount. Here's a comp in another lake community to compare: Interior lot on the 12th green in Stoney Point with partial views of Lake Greenwood. 2500 sf home. Assessed tax value from 2012 is $265k, taxes are $1750.... more
That is a tough one, your best avenue may be some form of owner financing. There used to be more options prior to 2008 manufactured home loans are very hard to get at best and a single wide is even more difficult at any interest rate. If you have already located the home on the land you want let your "fingers do the walking" call around or surf the web and ask the question.
Choose a Realtor tell them the area you are most interested in living, the basic must haves for the home and the love to haves and let the agent do the work for you! The homes that qualify are in designated areas so it is not the home but the location of the home that determines this. There have been areas added recently to the greater Greenwood area.
Greenwood is a fairly small town and finding the right property for a "frat house" may not be able to be determined by just locating a particular area, it may best be located by finding an agent who will work diligently with you to locate the right property when it comes on the market if it is not already on the market. You may find a property on the internet that works for you but without knowing if it is going to pass zoning guidelines it is not the right property. Or you may locate an area that is zoned for your purpose but no properties fit the needs. When you are looking in a large city there may be hundreds of opportunities but in a smaller town with much less inventory and even less inventory that fits specific criteria. Your best option is as I pointed out earlier in my answer, a Realtor who will be diligent in helping you snag the right real estate that fits the need, the location and zoning. It may take awhile but the right agent will not give up on finding the real estate to fit your needs if you don't give up.
Glenn pricing a home involves more than just price per sq. ft. you have to compare apples to apples. location,what amenities, number of bedrooms, baths, lot size, upgrades the home has and what buyers have ultimately paid for homes comparable to the home that is being valued. The process of an appraisal takes an expert who is valuing an individual property and comparing it to other individual properties in similar locations, sq.ft. lot size, upgrades and how these upgrades translate into value added to the property. There is little to no accuracy in a website valuation of homes in a whole town.
Unfortunately, we are finding more and more that our crime rate is rising. We are listed as a high crime rate area for this region. That is so sad because we have a beautiful, wonderful town. My door is unlocked most of the day.... more
