I'd suggest that simply putting your name and return address on the envelope informs them that you're next door. Maybe they'll respond to you simply because you are their neighbor.Yes, but what I mean is how do you separate yourself from the hundreds of BS random letters? I know I don't even open mail from random folks.
Also, the real estate is crazy, as in odd as heck. You will see a 1.5 acre parcel for $12k, and same neighborhood, wooded, vacant piece, for $75k. Saw one the other day, been unsold for probably 9 months, I get zillow/redfin/whatever notification of price change. After not selling for 9 months, of coarse they Raised the asking price by $20k. My own neighboor hood, a wooded 2 acre could be $90k asking; and a very similar wooded 5 acre parcel for $40k. There has been a couple small independent spec builders buying/building spec houses on some of those real cheap 2 acre pieces. You'll see 10 acres and a single wide for $650k, ect. Doesn't seem like anyone has a good grip on what the market really is doing here.
Mom sold 28 acres of scrub woods for $90k about 5 miles from me. Almost thought about it, But, I don't want to live next door to mom... family is best at a bit of distance
