  • Pre-Sell to homebuyers from "ground up" 
  • "Turnkey Listings" sell homes on your lots
  • Sell your excess lot and land inventory
  • Build more. Find new homesites & projects

Built for You...The One Site for Homesites was designed specifically for the homebuilder and developer industry -- it's the nation’s premier web site for residential homesites and land for new homes. 

And because LotNetwork's audience of users includes thousands of people searching for homesites for building a new home, we help homebuilders connect earlier with homebuyers. You get the many benefits of pre-selling by reaching buyers who are considering a not-yet-built home over one that is already completed. You can use LotNetwork's tools like Turnkey Listings and our other powerful marketing and advertising options to help you connect with these desirable homebuyers who are trying to get into their new home from "the ground up." 

In addition, if you are ready to get another project moving forward you can search LotNetwork's more than 400,000 listings nationwide for homesites and land for new homes. LotNetwork connects builders and developers with new project opportunities.

So whether you’re selling new homes, finished lots, a builder-owned “Turnkey” lot with home to be built, or development land – or if you’re looking to buy property for your next project – is the site for you.

Search Tips:

  • Customize your searches to get a list of potential properties that fit your needs. Use Quick Search at the top of most pages and on the Home page for a speedy search by city, state, zip or LotNetwork ID#. Want even more control? With Advanced Search you can fine-tune searches and filter results using pricing and acreage info, as well as county, keyword and other criteria on the Search page.
  • Fewer properties will be returned when your search criteria are narrow. Consider broadening your search (most search criteria are optional) to receive a larger list of properties and then narrow down the list. That perfect property might be just outside your ideal criteria.
  • Focus on location first, and see how many results you get (zip code only, city/state only, etc.). Then narrow down by price, acreage and other criteria as you wish and re-run your search.
  • Use the Select Sort Criteria options above the search results to change the order of the property list.
  • Manage your Saved Searches, New Listing Alerts, Saved Favorites and more in the My LotNetwork area.
Search Tips
