It depends on several factors and more specific info would be needed. A local real estate agent would be best suited to help you answer this question. Some agents will provide free comparative market analyses to anyone who asks for one...Some, like myself, actually conduct an analysis, and therefore only provide this information to our clients. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Just because information is free, doesn't mean its accurate. I'm in Conway. If I can help further, feel free to contact me. ... more

You can check road ownership in a couple of ways. If the subdivision is a platted and recorded subdivision, most likely the roads are maintained by the county or city. This can be determined if there is a formal subdivision plat on file at the county court house. The plat would have had to go through a formal approval process before the local zoning authority. Taking over road maintenance is one of the purposes of approving or rejecting a formal subdivision plat. The owner of the original tract of land 'gives' or 'dedicates' the road to local government.

On the other hand, if the subdivision in question was a "boot leg" subdivision, in other words, a large tract that was divided into smaller parts and given individual metes and bounds descriptions, but platted all together to give the appearance of a subdivision plat, then it may very well be possible that the roads were never formally handed over to the city/county. In those cases, the road still belongs to the owner of the larger tract of land.

To begin your search, start by looking for a copy of the subdivision plat in the court house.

I will see if I can track anything down for you.
Give me an idea on the basics like, how much you want to spend, how much acreage, if you prefer a lot that has utilities already installed (might be harder to find, but I can check).
