- Extensive Direct Road Frontage
- Almost No Restrictions (Zoned Rural)
- Power Available
- Very Flat & Buildable
- Partially Cleared
- Seasonal Stream
- Only Half Hour from Columbia & Spokane Rivers
- Priced about 12% Below Market
- Abundant Wildlife
PROPERTY: This 40 acre lot is moderately wooded with several clear areas and accessible through extensive direct frontage on two different roads — Deer Mountain and Drum Roads. There are no structures on site, but power does run along the road frontage so the whole package is ready for your development. It’s ready for just about anything, in fact, because its RA-5 (Rural Area) zoning is very loose and allows for a wide variety of residential and even some commercial development! Possibly most importantly, the lot is partially cleared, very flat and very buildable, and offers excellent views of the mountains to the west. A seasonal stream even meanders down the west part of the tract. Neighbors are few and far between in these parts so you can enjoy the unspoiled wilderness and wildlife here in total serenity. If you don’t mind neighbors and are considering this as a “subdivide & sell” investment, then this is a great opporunity for that. The zoning for this property allows lots as small as 5 acres. The process to turn it into two 20 acre lots is quick and simple after a survey is done. With Deer Mountain Road splitting the parcel almost exactly in half at its southern boundary line, you could easily configure both sides to have road access. When you’re ready to get out and explore the great Pacific Northwest, Fort Spokane is just over a half hour to the west and guards the confluence of the Columbia and Spokane Rivers. The legendary Columbia, of course, carried Lewis & Clark to the Pacific Ocean in 1805. Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area is also serviced by Fort Spokane and offers breathtaking views and exhilirating hiking opportunities. For major shopping and dining, the city of Spokane is only an hour to the east is one of the American West’s most charming mid-sized cities.

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
OUTSIDE FINANCING: Your best deal for financing will come from a local bank or credit union and we can help you find a great deal.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why we price our properties at below market value, and the answer is really simple: because we can, and that’s our core business model. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and deeply liquidated rates, and by passing this discount on to our buyers, we can sell land quickly . . . and more of it! In fact, our average property only lasts 2-3 weeks on the market (vs. industry average of about 6 months).
DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
The information within this listing is posted by a private or third-party seller and we do not guarantee the accuracy of the information enclosed. We encourage to always verify ownership and property details listed. As a precaution, due diligence in any real estate transaction is encouraged and closing through a verified title company is advised. To the maximum extent permitted by law we do not accept any responsibility to any person for the accuracy of the information herein.
