Scott Wild, Both Buyer and Seller in Arizona

How can I find plots that have 2 or more structures, such as two homes on the same lot? That is what I ideally need to be looking for.

Asked by Scott Wild, Arizona Thu Mar 11, 2010

I wish to run a commercial business and house my family in two homes all on 1.5 Acres of land. Similar to 902 W. Harwell Rd.

Hi Scott,

You need to get in touch with an agent that is knowledgeable of both, commercial and residential real estate. The property/land will most probably have to be zoned commercial, and the type will depend on what kind of business you wish you run. In order to help you your agent will be asking for some more information, including the kind of business you wish to run, area, size, etc...

The MLS does not have very helpful parameters for this type of search, so many agents will be disqualified from helping you at the outset. Relatively few of us have experience actually digging for information. You will need someone experienced in commercial and residential transactions ... like me:)

I have been a commercial real estate attorney and agent for nearly a decade and have been involved in over $100M in transactions in the last 12 months alone. I can certainly help you identify the available properties that meet your needs.

We can find those properties for you. What price range would you like to invest and what areas area you willing to consider?

Hi Scott,

It is easy to search for workshops, extra garages, casitas, guest houses etc on a Realtor search. You won't get that capability on a search on the MLS such as What you want to do is allowed in any R-43 zoning...a home based business, such as you described is allowed. You could also just search for a house on an acre with R-43 zoning and put up your own building. I currently have 2.5 acres available with a manufactured home and a 10X14 Tuff Shed with electricity that might work in about the same price range. Or contact me and I can set up a search for you in the areas you want, and can have it updated with new listings sent as often as you want through my automatic update capabilities.

If you are looking at a for sale by owner setup look at The amount of listings places I have looked are not overwhelming.

If you are going to use a realtor tell them what you want and allow them to have the headaches.

Okay well thanks, maybe I should reword this. I don't mean commercial walk-in business. I run an at-home printing company. There is no actual storefront or sales on site. But thanks for the help!
