Land Market Report: April Land Sales

Published

By Jared Groce

April was a slow month for closings on rural real estate in our area. There was a lot of activity with showings and negotiations, but the actual number of closed transactions was significantly lower than usual. I guess the never-ending turmoil of our nation has everyone in limbo as to what to do right now.

The lenders are seeing more interest from buyers starting the purchase process right now, and we are also seeing more inventory become available on the market. The market is definitely not stagnate, in spite of the low number of closings in April. Be sure to look closely at your property tax appraisal notice and make sure that you agree with it, and follow the proper steps to contest them if you don’t.

Demand remains strong for some properties, while the number of buyers for others has dropped. We are seeing a decrease in the demand for lower price point homes, with increased demand for raw land over $1,000,000. There is still a lot of people with 1031 money who are trying to defer capital gains taxes, and they have a limited amount of time to get that money spent.

The higher interest rates are keeping first-time home buyers on the sidelines, as well as folks who need to borrow a lot of the money to buy and build on land.
