Question How to get average land prices per county?

Is there a website that lists the average price of just land (no home) per acre by state and county? Not just TN, but all over the U.S. ? I googled but haven't been able to find a site that wasn't just trying to sell land.

I doubt seriously if anyone would bother to compile such a list. When it comes to the value of land (unless you're talking about flat agricultural land as is found in the Central Valley of CA) each piece is really unique and an average wouldn't be of much use.

The most frequent question I get is "How much does 5 acres go for?" I ask them if they want a flat 5 acre piece or a vertical one. There's a huge difference in the utility of every single parcel around my neck of the woods.

I can tell you that prices of land will range between $8,000 per acre and $4 million per acre in Dallas County, TX. What good will the "average price per acre" do for you? It's all a function of location and any "average price" would be totally meaningless.

That's probably why nobody does it.

I was kind of thinking the same thing.

There is no average price. There may be a median price list somewhere. But you would need to contact each county in a state individually. There are just too many variables: A, R, C, I, perked, not perked, open land, rolling land, tree covered land, initial acre, secondary acreage, acreage beyond 20 acres,etc. As stated, too many variables and every county values it differently.
