Hi,

Almost two years ago I bought 3 acres of beautiful wooded area in Overlook Pointe in Cookeville, TN.

How are land prices these days?

Thanks.

I've seen a few new homes built in Overlook Pointe. It's a stunningly beautiful area, very hidden. I just stumbled upon it by accident a couple of months ago.

But since it's a very upscale development, I honestly can't imagine that the prices have gone up much in the last 2 years, if at all. While Cookeville is a popular relocation destination, it's not totally immune from a nationwide recession, unfortunately.

I did a search for you through County Records. Use this link and scroll down. I sorted the development by sale date. If you click on each property the size and sale price should come up. These are the properties that have sold.

Sorry for some reason it won't let me direct link you. Go into the above link, put in Putnam county and Overlook in the subdivision section.

This will give you the list you are looking for.

That's a nice resource. Despite the poor economy, my mom and sister's house in Telford has gone up.

I just checked the assessment site. They have 88 of the 95 counties in TN. Knox, unfortunately, is not one of the 88.

Here are 2 sites that might help.

Property Tax Search - Trustee - Knox County Tennessee - A Great American Community


Knox County Public Records Data - REALTOR.com®

Based on market value, in the 3 years we've been here, the river front lots on the Caney Fork in Rock Island are holding steady about about the same price - $60k for an acre and about $75k for a 2 acre lot. The in land / farm land seems to have gained a bit of value. Was running about $3k an acre when we bought and went up to nearly $10k at it's peak, but looks like it's running in the $7k per acre range now.

I bought 40 acres for $1500/acre in 1996. Is worth at least 4X that now.

Yup, real estate has been good here for the last 20 years. Prices appreciated relatively rapidly here up until the last year-two years when the appreciation slowed. It's still going up, but slowly...and like many areas of the country, many properties are on the market quite a bit longer than they may have been just a couple of years ago.
