How difficult to change zoning from single residence to double?
I saw a lot with a realtor's sign on it. The lot was between two single family houses, but just down the street were several duplexes. I looked on realtor.com, Zillow, and redfin and couldn't find a listing for the lot. So I called a local big name real estate company to find out. They told me that the listing had expired in 2011 and that it was zoned single residence so I couldn't build a duplex on it.
Sooo, why was the real estate sign still there, and how hard to get it rezoned? The others must have been rezoned at some point I assume. They wouldn't start out with six single family lots and then a few double family lots would they?
