I'm looking for some property in AZ for an idea of mine. I'll go into details later. I'm looking for around 20-30 acres in total. But I don't want it way out in the country. Any one have any ideas on who I should contact or where to start? Everytime I look it just keeps sending me out to the boonies which I don't want. I would prefer to have this land around North Scottsdale or above the 101 on the North side of the city.

That would be reservation. Acreage is all in the countryside. I do know of 20 acres in Apache Junction fenced off Cordova

From the sound it,what you want you are looking for is land in a prime location,that much land in a prime location would be worth millions.

20-30 acres in one piece in the metro area is not going to be cheap land. There's a reason our new houses are built five feet apart...

North of the 101 is not reservation. East of the 101 (Pima Freeway) yes.

OP- That is going to be an expensive proposition if you want that much land in the areas you mention. Apache Junction is a workable option, and it's not that far out.

I assume your budget is around 100 million?

People that own 20 to 30 acres in the Metro Area are just sitting on it waiting for someone to offer a very high price.

The probable reason they send you out to the Boonies, is when they find what you are looking to pay for the land, they send you where it is possible to acquire land for that amount. That much land in the Boonies, will cost less than a half acre parcel in the development areas.

Close in land as you apparently want to acquire, is all considered future development land, and future development land is very expensive in any Metro Area. If it is already zoned as much is, then it is even higher in price.

And if it is for business purposes, commercial land is higher priced than residential land as there is less of it.

Check out the Arizona State Land Department. They periodically auction off parcels of land to developers. Most of this land is in areas that are ripe for development, not in the middle of nowwhere. You may have missed the boat though, as the last few years the auctions have been a bust, even some of the sucessful bidders have defaulted on their bids, but that is changing (again). Builders and developers again are hot to buy these parcels as they ramp up again to start building. Still, worth checking out.

ASLD Scheduled Auctions

Good luck.
