Attention boaters and fishermen! These two lots have great access along Lindell Street and South 23rd Street. These level lots are covered in thick grass and are ready to be used. The elevation of these lots appears to have been raised in the past as they are a couple feet higher than the surrounding land. Perhaps the most exciting feature of these lots is their location--they are located literally right next to a public access ramp to the Big Muddy River!  They would be absolutely perfect for temporary recreational use!  Please note that there is still a flood risk for these lots, and you will want to investigate this before building any permanent structures on the property.

Below is an aerial imaged of the two lots. The dotted yellow line is the dividing line between the two lots.  You can purchase either lot individually, or both of them!

Financing Terms
We are willing to work with buyers to find a payment solution that is affordable and meets your needs. You can purchase this property one of two ways. The first is with a cash offer, either with cash from savings or from a bank loan. The second is to get financing from us in the form of a contract-for-deed, which is a form of seller financing that helps buyers avoid the difficult and costly process of going through a bank to obtain a mortgage loan. The minimum requirements for this type of arrangement is: 1) a 15% downpayment; 2) monthly payments of at least $250; and 3) interest of 7.0% per year. Paying more per month would reduce the length of the financing and there are no penalties for paying it down early. In the event you want to take advantage of this financing, we will work with you to arrange a satisfactory monthly payment. Once the last payment has been made, the deed will be transferred to the buyer. Before entering a contract-for-deed, it is important to make sure that you can afford all of the payments until the financing is completely paid off. A default could result in loss of the property and any funds paid up to the time of default, similar to a mortgage loan.
