Basically Maggie, it's much more expensive to build a house now than it is to just buy one that's already there...waiting for you to just sign the papers and move right in. :-)

Vacant land isn't selling in Stockton or anywhere else in the Central Valley. Not unless the owner inherited it and wants to just get rid of it.

I'd be very wary about this type of speculating in this area unless you have some deep pockets and staying power. Now if you were near the coast that would be a different story.

Hi Maggie,

Most folks look for a home already built. The market for lot is much smaller as it would take a large about of work to line up and manage a contractor, build a single home and get the right financing in place. There's more to it than that, but perhaps you could share the street name or address of where the lot is located. There may be something else.
