One of the worst things that could happen to the purchaser of residential land, is realizing that his new neighbor are up in arms against him. Dan Edward Phillips provides some greats tips that will preclude such occurences.. Please stop by Dan's post and leave him a comment
If you are considering purchasing a vacant lot to build on, in an established neighborhood, contact the adjoining neighbors to determine what their response will be to your building plans. Having a clear sketch of your plans to provide them will be very helpful.
Will you be blocking their view?
Will you be building on the kid's 'ball diamond".
If your plans are less than conventional, will they object to the plans?
How positive a reception do you receive when contacting them? Does it appear they are resistant?
You do not want to find out after purchasing a vacant lot to build on that your new neighbors will object to your design and even appeal it.
Do your home work before you purchase.
