That's pretty vague. Do you want open farm land, forest, or water access? Narrow it down so we're comparing apples to apples and you' get more response. On a very general scale, I would say it's comparable.

It's according to the area you want to buy land in. I used to live in a town where you can buy an acre anywhere for $500-1000, I moved 2 hours away and the people here are insane, the cheapest price for an acre here is $20,000 and I've seen half an acre sell for 150,000 simply because of the neighborhood it was in.

Land sells for what it is worth...not a penny more.

FYI about Canaan Valley:

The national housing sitution has in some ways hit Canaan Valley. Houses aren't cheap but things have not been selling well so may be a time to strike for anyone interested.

Also, saw on TV that Aspen Glow has lots for half price. Haven't yet figured out where it is.

May also look into Tuscan Ridge. Don't know what the deal is there - classy looking development with a nice looking clubhouse. But does not look like any houses are actually being built and when we drive up there is a gate with lock across the road where you would access lots.

About Tuscan Ridge...

File this under "rumors"; heard it this summer from a friend who lives in the CV area, but don't know what credence to give it.

The story is that Tuscan Ridge is a property of a land development/investment company out of California. The general modus operendi would be to set up a development, sell the lots to investors, who would then pretty quickly turn the lots to people who would actually build houses. The developer had a loyal following of investors who had made money this way in the past.

Except that the TR lots hit the market just about the time that people became very disinterested in 2nd homes, being as how they were having trouble keeping up with the adjustable rates on their 100%-financed 1st home mortgages.

Supposedly, there's only one lot in Tuscan Ridge that's been bought by someone who actually wants to build a house, instead of just turn an investment over quickly.

Again, just a rumor...
