Best thing to do is find a real good agent and have them set you up on an automated searh for OWC properties. Not many out there but persistence will get you what you need.

I want to buy a emptly lot and build a duplex with (1) 1000 s.f. unit and (1) 500 s.f. unit. What do you estimate my fees will be for permits, etc?
I highly advise you contact a local builder. Let me know if you want references. By the way, odds are very high you can buy existing for much cheaper than you can build.
