This should be good....

Curious as to what the going rate for land is in your area with this market. I know this is purely location based, but I think it would be interesting to get a wide variety of input.

For reference, I am about an hour northeast of Charlotte, NC in a rural area. Everybody is moving out of Charlotte and other surrounding larger cities to move to the county and make the commute. This, combined with the crazy market, has driven our local market sky high.

I'm currently land shopping and the going rate has been anywhere from 20-25k per acre. I thought this was crazy, but in the last month I think everyone has realized they can get more and now most things I'm seeing are 30k+ per acre. Two years ago the common selling price of this land would have been 8-10k per acre, so the prices have roughly tripled.

What are the prices of LAND in your area now vs. 2 years ago? Not concerned with the value of homes as I know that is sky high too, wondering about the price of buildable land that can pass a perc test.

Rich. $$ from the cities are buying land at any price just to have a solid asset. Actual value means nothing.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

Ok, I will attempt to kick it off with $10,000 per acre raw wooded mountain land 20 miles from town. It's been this way for 15 years more or less.

Farm ground is around $4000-5000 per acre.

There's a 79 acre of woods and rough field close by for $200,000 total. A stream running through it.

Our prices are still mostly dairy agriculture based. It takes 2-3 acres per cow to feed the cows and distribute the manure. The range depends upon yield factors for the land. Currently we are seeing prices from about 5-11K per acre for land that is sold, without buildings. More land is leased or rented however and they range from 100 to 325 per acre in our county per crop year. The big factors for price is location, yield and field size. Big equipment is not cost effective on small and odd shaped fields. Not much being sold now with rent prices as high as they are.

1/4 - 1/3 building lot about $225,000.

About 20 miles away, 80+ acres zoned forestry (80 acre minimum lot size if you want to build), with very little merchantable timber would start at about $200,000 per 80. 640 acres $750K - $1 million.

What about when you get further West? I hunt a lot out towards Rooks, Trego, and Graham county. Seems like guys around there are paying more like 2-3k per acre, but they buy it by the sections

If it is level enough to build on and in or near town, it is sky high.

900.00-1000.00 per acre for bush land, no road maybe a 2 track, no elect. Lake front 142 ft. 1.5 million-Up, that is with a cabin. Lake front taxes will kill you. To run electric you pay the local electric company by the foot, or any other lines. Cost me a little over 13,000 to run telephone, internet line, 1/4 mile, the line had to bored up to the house. Could not get a southern skyline for sat, without cutting a crap load of trees.

That price per acre is about right, less populated out west and dryer
They farm section out west here they farm smaller tracks of land and spread out.
If a section of land came up for sale it would get divided up into 4 or more tracks

Northcentral Pennsylvania rural raw land went from $1,500-$2,500 an acre to at least $3,500 an acre since the flatlander influx started in 2020. Some places with special stream frontage etc just saw sales go from probably $5,000 an acre to…$17,000 or even $125,000 an acre. It’s gone quite bonkers. A great deal of land purchasing in central/ Northcentral PA has been driven by Amish and Mennonite buyers for the past five years or so. Now add in the flatlanders fleeing from Joizy, Néw Yawk, Delaware, People’s Republic of Maryland etc and most realtors will tell you raw land over ten acres is impossible to find.

Just drove past a really nice farm a mile and a half from my house which sold for just over a million last fall. It was bought by an investment group who divided it up into 10-11 acre lots.

They want 200,000 for a ten acre lot and 600,00 for the lot that has th house, barn and other buildings on it. In all, they want to double their money.
