Ready to build my dream home, looking for a plot of land within 50-60 miles of NYC, need help!

Asked by orp967, New York, NY Thu Aug 23, 2012

I'm looking for a plot of land that is flat and at least an acre big, within 50-60 miles north of New York City, located right off any of the major north/south bound highways (87, 9W, 9A, Taconic, SMR Pkwy, 684, 15, 95) as well preferably within close proximity to a metro north station (Port Jervis, Pasack Valley, Hudson, Harlem & New Haven lines are all ok). Looking for an area with a property tax amount (no more than 10K annually for a 400-500K home). Not looking to spend more than 200K on the plot.

Sorry for the long wish list, location is critical for me. Thanks for reading.

What no one has mentioned here are the taxes on new construction! On most of the listings the tax shows $1 as the builder does not want to file the final CO as that is when taxes start. In Northern Westchester your taxes may be in the teens and I've seen taxes in the $20k's! You probably need to go into Dutchess County. I cover the lower Dutchess county area and can help you find a nice property close to Metro North. Any questions, just ask. I am a full time Realtor and here to help.

The area I cover sounds perfect for you. You might need more than just 1 acre, some areas might want 3 acres in order to build a new home, like in Mahopac. Theres a lot more involved, give me a call!! 914-943-6442

This is out of my area, I work here in New Jersey, but the best thing you can do for yourself is find a good realtor to work with. Since the seller pays the commission, their services are free to you, and free is good, right? Let the realtor do the research and you build the house and the dream!
