Hi again Tijon,

I just sold a 13.6 acre lot in Jefferson, MD. There are some land listings available. One I know of in Potomac is about 2 acres and is priced at around $1,000,000. But other areas have different prices. If you give me a call, I would be happy to talk about your goals and help you devise a strategy to achieve them. My services are generally free to buyers, so there is no risk on your part. Let me know if I can help and we can get you the information you are looking for right away.

Hi Tijon,
The first step is to work with a realtor who has real-time access to active land/lot properties for sale. I can email you land/lot listings once you contact me.

Piero is correct. I represent many builders and developers and when they are looking for land we find the best opportunities through our contacts and word of mouth in the local market. If you are interestsed please feel free to contact me, or visit my website at http://www.JackShoptawTeam.com.

Tijon, homesdatabase.com is a good place to start, but land is often sold by word of mouth so you need to work with someone who is connected, like a Realtor.

Hi Tijon - There's two places to look: 1. listings for unimproved lots, and 2. existing, older homes on the market -- e.g. "tear-downs". You'll see #2 on any search site -- simply specify the lot size and 20854 for the zip.

Some sites don't include unimproved lots, so you should have an agent setup a search for you. Here's a link of all available lots (sorted by lot size) in Potomac with at least 2 acres:


Hope that helps. Building is quite an endeavor. Finding and buying the right lot is just the first step of many. This process can take years, and obtaining financing is more of a challenge now than it was several years ago. Good luck.

We've looked at buying land ourselves in that area, since we live in the adjacent neighborhood and would think about building. There are some lots out there for sale now, and you can buy from a developer and have them build to suit or just purchase the lot to hold or build yourself. Various real estate sites have postings and you can search by land/lot to find price/location that meets your needs, or you can have a (preferably experienced) broker or agent run the searches for you. Your fortunate that there typically would not be a charge on the buy side for that service.
