Vacant Land – Always the last part of a fallen real estate market to dust off the rubble and come back to the market! No shortage of it but land sales are beginning to pick up steam again. When the market was buoyant we used to have about 100 available lots for sale in Barrington 60010 area at a time. Currently we have 173 available vacant lots with sizes from 0.05 acres in town to 60 acres in Barrington Hills. There are a further 10 more lots under contract.
Vacant land sales have been progressing over the last few years. I’ll go back as far as 2011 because that was the last year before we saw the inklings of a revived economy and real estate market. 2013 was the year we saw a much stronger market.

Sell Your Vacant Lot in Barrington
It’s a sad fact but vacant lots are just not worth what they used to be. If you bought at the height of the market, you’ll likely not be able to get what you paid for it. However maybe it’s better to liquidate now rather than wait who knows how long to realize your money again. Profit is a thing of the future, the far future.
