Land for Sale - this is a pretty active category for Poconos
real estate.. Because of the way land has been developed over
the last 100 years in the Poconos, there are lots of lots.
During the 1960s through the 1980s many large parcels of land
were subdivided into lots.
Unlike the rest
of the world where builders subdivide and sell house land packages,
here in the Poconos many lots were sold off to individuals often
with low down payments and financed. These buyers anticipated either
building in the future or selling at a profit. Many of them did
neither leaving them with the burden of taxes and dues to carry
the land. So.. Today, (again unlike elsewhere in the US) there are
many lots for sale and because of the economy very few being sold.
There is, indeed, a twenty year supply of lots. So... if you have
one. Good luck. If, for some reason, you want to buy one, they are
Large lots and
parcels of land are however, in a different category. Since many
were subdivided up into lots in the past, there are few of these
left. Parcels of land over 2 acres are rare and sell at normal prices.
Below you will
find a list of lots and large parcels of land. They are listed in
price descending. Thus.... you will find the larger ones first and
many of the smaller pieces on the bottom of the list. (You can reverse
the order by clicking on "Price")
