Hi Mary, I know Island Park very well, The property you have is most likely a buildable lot. You have to go through the proper channels and I'm sure it would be approved. I know somebody who did it with a 50 x 40.. You can sell it for approx. 70-80K. I lived in IP my whole life. If you have any questions feel free to call my cell at 516-749-6925, Thank you

Your neighbors benefit from your under enhanced property, whereas you pay for your neighbors’ over enhanced properties when taxes are assessed--whereas market value can and should be defined as the price at which both buyers and sellers are willing to enter into a contractual relationship, whereas the market price is the actual sale/purchase price of a property--in order to establish a fair value, you need to be aware of recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--after reviewing the data, a determination can be made--therefore, ask your agent for comps or if looking in Nassau County, check out under closed properties, then by area. ... more
