Rem...I'm talking timbered trashy land that's only good for hunting. Neighboring farm was bought last year for $67,000. It was 167 acres. No hard road touching it...no timber. I'm talking hunting land that is REMOTE with only a couple flat places for a cabin...mostly hillside.
We have to drive 1.1 miles through a creek to get to our cabin. We have no available phone line.
You're talking about a residence, I'm not talking about a place to live, I'm talking hunting land with no house at all.
The last 82 acresmy wife and Ibought was $20,000 in 2001. That's under $300/acre. The land is good for nothing but hunting at this point.
All that said, a bowhunting club just bought a farm behind my cousins house that was for sale. It was 150+/- acres. It has a nice house...lots of timber...and tons of food plots and fields already planted. It fetched $300K. It's all in the amenities.
It's like the difference between an F-150 in XL trim ($15K) and and F-150 in Harley Davidson trim. (35K)
