    Could someone give me an idea of price per acre in Taylor county for hilly country (not farmable) that has already had the timber taken off of it. Thank you!

    WAY too many variables to answer this question correctly.... Location is the key??? But I'd guess your looking at $1500-$2500 an acre. I'm in marion co. Close to Taylor co line. If its rough and rural, you might get it cheaper.

    When my Brother and I purchased our 83 acres back in 2008, which included a new log home; we paid around $1,400/acre. Some one told me that land prices are going up in Taylor, especially in the Southern part.

    I paid $1600/acre for 88 acres about 8 years ago. Hilly and non farmable, with timber standing

    Land prices everywhere are up significantly from 5 yrs ago...land is one of those things too that it's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Lots of variables to consider as stated above. You are paying for the lands best resource, obviously the timber is gone for now so I would heavily consider its best asset would be hunting/recreation, tillable, or residential potential.

    This is on the Taylor Marion line. It has been logged within the last 10 years. It has been on the markey several times in the last 23 years. Not sure how many times it has changed hands. This is about as hilly as it gets in that area. Give a call and get an idea. 1A0340E6-4F3B-4EFE-8116-93504C38EE60.jpeg C91AB73F-62A7-4122-A523-CE359DA38C7E.jpeg

    For what it's worth not many really good hunting properties ever make it on the market before they sell and every property for sale with any trees seems to have the caption "great hunting." Changing hands a lot is a red flag for me personally and that road right there might be a trespassing issue. Just things to consider as it might be a great place. I'd be surprised though if still it's not 1800-2000 per acre.

    We have some good deals going on here in Lexington. 530 acres/6.9 million, 94 acres/2.4 million, 36acres w/house/ 2.1 million...I would go on but I don’t want any of you buying them out from under me.

    I got 24 acres behind me for sale at 69K. It would take 20K or more to clean up enough room for a house, garage and driveway. I like they advertise you can see Lake Malone from this lot....Yeah right all the way to the back, narrow and long lot and only 200 yards from the lake where maybe in winter you could see 20 foot of water across another lot if you worked at it hard...LOL.

    They don’t make it anymore so if it’s something you like you’d better get it.
