There is one other option that I did not mention below. It has been fairly common in DB to buy an existing home in disrepair or original condition and then scrape the lot and build new. If you are looking for ultimate location this may be a great option. It costs approx $30k to scrape a lot. So if you find the perfect location with a REO or below market fixer it in the $400's, you can get the perfect location for less than the cost of an available lot only in a less than prime location.

Again, my job is to make sure you look at all of your options.

Edie,

Yes a few lots are available but that is not the only question. You asked about specific bays which means you know what you want. This is an excellent time to purchase lots at far below their highs. However.....You can purchase beautiful homes, on the bays you are asking about well below the cost of the lot and new construction costs. Construction costs in DB are still between $150 and $250 per sq ft. (or more). If you build a 3000 sq. ft. home, in order to maximize the value of the deep water lot you are looking at approx. $600K to build plus $300K to $600k for the lot. So it may cost you near $1M to build what you could buy pre-built for hundreds of thousands less.

As a Realtor and Broker for many years in Discovery Bay I know the area extremely well and would be glad to help you decide which course of action would meet all of you needs. My primary job is to make sure you look at all of your options.

Please also ask me about our Buyer Commission Rebate up to 1.5% of your purchase price.
