Yes, location is everything. Co-workers's dad sold a piece of land that was about 30 by 40 feet for about $ 700,000. It just hapened to be at Myrtle Beach, SC in a high dollar area.

One of my neighbors wanted to buy a strip of land from me, it was going to cost them more than it was worth. They finally resorted to trying to take it by adverse possession but that failed (they started to mow it and stuff and told the judge that "her grandmother" (who they inherited the house from) had gardened on it for years. Too bad the "for years" ended when she died in the 60s.
You could ask the owner if he'd be willing to sell a strip if land. I'd consult a surveyor along with your city planning people then get a lawyer. Then my neighbors did their research it was going to cost about 1k for the survey and transfers/plot updates plus any other fees the city or lawyer would levy.

What about an easement? "an interest in land owned by another that entitles its holder to a specific limited use or enjoyment; also : an area of land covered by an easement".

I always offer a lease when I detect an adverse possession claim.
It clears up the confusion.

What is the lot size? If you want to go10 feet into his property, and the total is 100 square feet, it sounds like you want a 10' by 10' parcel. It sounds like one of several things is occurring here: Either the lot size is 10 feet deep, your estimate on the total square footage is off, you are looking to build a pen of some kind, or I am missing something (quite possible)
I guess I don't have anything constructive to add to the discussion. I am just trying to determine what you are looking to do. It looks like some of the answers are based upon the idea of a fence running the length of a property line. With many lots, it would only be 1 foot or less into the proerty line to equal 100 square feet.
