I have been looking for a realitivity small piece of property to set up a small hunting camp with my brother to share with our kids and the guys on here.
The one I called on today was a ten acre lot with a small cabin, no water, no electricity, no nothing on a non- plowed road for $78,000 dollars. A house in town that is habitual with all communities is almost half the cost.
same here .. but more land but on a seasonal road , good luck getting there if its a wet muddy fall/winter or heavy snow fall ..
no elect .. but you can dig a hole and find water there where i hunt .. good thing there is still 56 acres there that i can still use to hunt on ..
grew up on that land and thanks to the friends of the family and Family members that still own it ..
it used to be my grandpa on my mom's side and 3 uncles owned it .. now its down to a friend of the family and like 3rd cousins if not 6th ..
see spots next to that area for sale with a small cabin that would need to be demolished and rebuilt .... but the price is OMG
few years ago i did see some stuff on hunting land searches to buy .. if the area is full of trees , you can get a tax break to leave as a AKA forest ..
something along that line .. i think it was on the NY DEC site that i seen it .. where it is now .. not a clue ..
I've been looking for land since Jan of 17. Many land owners are idiots, they want absurd amounts of money. Insane how do I know? because it never sells.
I was talking to somebody earlier today who owns 2 acres near me. I estimate it's worth $40-50k. They bought it to build, years ago, but have decided not to. So the husband sits on this land so that he can sell it for money down the road. His wife, who I talked to, wants him to sell because all they do is pay property taxes on it, and all the lost opportunity cost is quite literally costing them thousands per year if they would just dump it and invest the difference in equities. If they had sold this land years ago they'd be sitting on 6 figures, but instead of they have this silly parcel of land costing them property taxes every year instead.
I've seen lots of parcels in the area people asking idiotic amounts of money that nobody ever will pay.
When I look at land that actually sells in my general vicinity (e.g. hunting land) it goes for around $1500/acre, but that doesn't stop people often hitting up the MLS asking $80k for 10 acres and other such crap.
