Not as rare as you might think, at least in the areas of Utah county  
that I was interested in when my wife and I were looking for a new  
home 6 to 10 months ago.  I looked at a lot of lots, many of them were  
being sold by the person who bought them (speculators), some were  
being sold with a "use our builder or your own" type of deal, and a  
few were "buy the lot, but you must use our builder to build the  
house".  I was looking in various parts of Orem, Provo, Springville,  
Spanish Fork, Lindon, and Pleasant Grove.  It is probably highly  
dependent on the subdivision that you are looking in.
