Cheap Land in Mississippi near Heidelberg
Heidelberg is one of Mississippi’s most prolific producers of natural resources like oil, timber, and livestock, and this property is located just 20 minutes from Lake Claude Bennett, a 71-acre lake popular with both bass fishermen and water sports enthusiasts. Historic Laurel, Mississippi, where the hit HGTV show “Home Town” is based, lies just 23 minutes to the south.
- No Restrictions
- Spring-fed Pond
- All Utilities (power, water, sewer)
- Mobile Home
- Paved Road Frontage
- Priced about 32% Below Market
- Flat + No Floodplain = Very Buildable
PROPERTY: This 22.3 acre generally flat lot features a 28,000 square foot clearing and driveway at the far northwest corner, where an old mobile home stands. The rest of the land is wooded, with a spring-fed pond near the southeast corner of the lot, about 85 feet from the road. That road is County Road 35, a paved public street, and it offers about 1200 feet of direct frontage to this parcel. All utilites are available and there are no floodplain encroachments, so the whole package is very ready for further development. It’s ready for anything, in fact, because there are no restrictions here! With this much flat, dry acreage, paved road frontage, and utility availablity inside a county that’s buoyed by a vibrant natural resource industry, this would also be a great investment for anyone looking to subdivide and sell. A high school and elementary school shares your southern boundary, with a church and a three homes on the other side of the street. So, even though you’re only one minute from the freeway (US 59) the area is not highly developed — a win-win for both quick access to travel and a more peaceful, rural lifestyle. Heidelberg is your local town about 5 minutes down the road and you can grocery shop at Dollar General or Family Dollar or grab a bite to eat. Lakes, rivers, and natural springs are bountiful in Jasper County, and Lake Claude Bennett, just 20 minutes to the north, is sure to delight any fisherman or water sports lover. Historic downtown Laurel is about the same distance in the other direction and is one of the most charming towns in the entire state – a fact not lost on the folks that run HGTV, who now film the hit show “Home Town” here. As a regional shopping hub offering big box retailers like Walmart and Lowe’s, it’s also highly practical.

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. In this case, we think Merchants & Planners Bank in Heidelberg is your best option. Call Bill at (601) 787-3431. They offer land loans for 35% down, don’t have minimum credit scores, and their current land loan interest rate = 4.5%, as of 7/25/22.
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.
