Listed Lots at lakewood!!

I want to discuss available listed lots at Lakewood. After an extensive search , I would like to list here from best to worse(my opinion as to the best value,buildability and suitability) of each lot. I will be giving the street that the lots are on and the map and parcel number. If you want to see the plat map for a particuliar lot, please call me or e-mail me and I will scan the plat map into an e-mail to you.

1. best listed lot available- Redwood Drive 1 acre listed at $19,900 map 062 parcel 24.66
2. next best listed lot available- OakRidge Ext 1 acre listed at $19,900 map 062 parcel 25.42
3. 3rd best lot available- Elm Lane(across street from our close friends (Wrights) 1 acre listed at $18,500 map 062 parcel 25.66

There may be another lot or so listed that I may have missed but these are my top picks.

I have also located a few unlisted lots that may also be available.

lots available at Lakewood!!

In the next few days, I am going to post information about several lots at lakewood that are available to purchase. I found many of these while researching lots for one of my clients.

While the sale of homes at Lakewood has taken off, the sale of lots is still almost non existent for (I believe) 2 reasons. One, when the lots were purchased, the appraised value was high and the purchase price was also relatively high. For instance, a 1.5 acre lot would have been valued at $22,500 amd purchased for $21,900. That same lot today, if listed would probable sell for $16,000. The difference in those values would mainly be attributed to the cost of removing large trees from the property to get lot ready to build on. The second reason the lots are not selling is because(already alluded to) the lots are grown up and people can not see the "real lot" behind all the brush, undergrowth, and trees.

There is still some very nice lots remaining at Lakewood but most if not all will require alot of work cleaning up(and removing very large trees).

For you Florida people looking to relocate to waterfront property here in northwest Tennessee, come up here and let me show you these lots and introduce you to some contractors/builders that can in turn tell you the cost to get the lots ready to build on. Then let's purchase the lot and get your builder started on construction. Go home and put your property on the market and move up here into your "new lakefront home" !!!!

people,clients and lots

Hello all,

I got a call yesterday to meet some clients at Lakewood to look at lots. I have a lot listed on
OakRidge near the house I just sold at 698 OakRidge. We also looked at an unlisted lot down the street right beside the Nichols family. This is the first time I have met this very nice couple. The Nichols were very cordial and helpful with information.

We then left and looked at another lot on Redwood Lane. They are trying to decide between the lot near 698 OakRidge and the lot on Redwood.

If any of you Lakewood(lot only) owners are reading this and want to sell your lot, please call me asap.

Also, I worked with a new client on Sunday who would have bought at Lakewood if we could have found a nice home for sale in Lakewood. The pickings are slim right now in Lakewood!!
Anyway, I sold this client a home in another part of the county.
