How big is a lot?

Asked by dahknowsbest, Port Charlotte, FL Thu Jun 6, 2013

How many square feet per lot on biscayne drive?

This question was asked from this property: http://www.trulia.com/homes/Florida/Port_Charlotte/sold/1000…

Help the community by answering this question:


This lot on Biscayne is not for sale. If you look in the upper right corner it says Public Record. If you want to look on Trulia for lots for sale, it will say For Sale in the upper right. I would be happy to send you some lot listings that are actually for sale in the MLS or you can search on my web site at: http://www.tammyhayes.remax-florida.com/.

The average sq ft lot in this area is 10,000 sq ft. (80 x 125) There are some larger corner lots and lots in cul-de-sacs and there are some double lots around 20,000 sq ft with a few larger ones here and there.

Are you looking at lots to purchase as an investment or to build on. New construction is increasing in this area. If you are looking to build on a lot, then you may want to contact a builder. Most of them will do a feasibility study for you for free to be sure the lot will meet your needs. They will also be able to give you what the additional costs are for building on a lot such as water/septic or sewer, utilities, impact fees, etc. Some areas require a minimum square footage of the home as well. So be sure to do your research before investing in a lot.

I would be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

Many of the standard lots start at 80 by 125 which equals 10,000 square feet. There is no guarantee that every standard lot will be the same identical square footage. They can vary in size by many of degrees. You have some lots that are 80x120, 80x125x80x125, 160x125, and so on. There are too many sizes to list, but to keep it simple just remember that the standard lots are right at the 80x125. The first number represents the front footage while the second represent the depth of the land.

Right now as of the date of this message being posted there are 4 lots available on Biscayne Dr. which three of them are 80x125 and the last being 80x120.

The lots in order from lowest to highest price are as follows, $3,900 $8,750 $11,900 $49,900

The lot that is 80x120 is asking 49,900

It totally depends where you are. Example: in Cape Coral a "lot" is defined as 40'X125', which is not large enough to build a house on... So, MOST homes in Cape Coral are built on double lots which equal 80'X 125' or just under a quarter acre. Some homes are built on "triple" lots which are approximately 125'X125'.

However, in some deeded communities the lot size is much smaller, as the are in Sandoval - as they may be in different cities...

Each property has it's own specific characteristics.

If you need a certain lot size or acreage, please give me a call. I specialize in locating the perfect property that fits your needs, negotiating the best deal possible and protecting your interests every step of the way. Call me and lets talk about how I can help you find a home you will love.
