I would not limit your search to "private parties".... in the York area there are very few for sale by owners, and don't be misled that you may get a better price without a Realtor. If you do have a buyer broker, their responsibility is to represent your best interest, including financially.
I personally purchased a lot just over a year ago, for a great price, and am now building an investment property on it.......was listed with an agency but had a few "issues" which I was able to get answers from the town and resolve, and ultimately was a more desireable buildable piece of land.
Best of luck!
