Cheap Waterfront Land in Texas on Matagorda Bay
Along the Texas Coastal Plains once explored by the legendary expeditionist Sieur de La Salle in 1684 lies Matagorda Bay and its various inlets. The water systems here are known for great fishing and shrimp farms, but the beauty of these shorelines is enough to draw you in and never let go.
- 200+ feet of Beachfront
- On the Point of the Peninsula
- 84 feet of Road Frontage
- Power & Water Available
- Discount Priced about 37% Below Market
- Flat & Buildable Shelf 10 feet above Sea Level
- Beautiful, Peaceful Setting but less than half-hour from Major City & Walmart
PROPERTY: This 1.1 acre square-ish parcel is perfectly located on the point of a small peninsula that runs out into Carancahua Bay, an inlet of Matagorda Bay, and features about 207 feet of beach frontage and about 84 feet of direct road frontage on Five Mile Trail. You have 300+ feet of depth, from the road to the beach, to provide an ample amount of building space too and the topography is well-suited for building since the majority of the property rests on a very flat shelf about 10′ above sea level. The beach portion of the property lies beneath this shelf. The land is undeveloped, grassy, and lightly wooded but power and water is available in the neighborhood. The neighborhood overall is still highly undeveloped except for the Cape Shores community dock just down the beach. The undeveloped neighboring lot that shares our north boundary line, and comprises the other half of this peninsula’s point, just sold for $229K. Jump on this beachfront property at a huge Acretown discount!

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: City State Bank of Palacios offers land loans in this area and their phone # is 361-972-2585.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why our properties are priced below market value, and the answer is really simple: we choose to sell to you at wholesale prices. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and discounted rates, and we strongly believe in passing this discount on to our buyers.
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.
