Hi Blake, landlocked property may have some real issues to review before you can establish value. One consideration is the present and future use. I understand that "recreational" is your current thoughts. Access to the property has to be your main focus before the purchase and this will impact the sell price. I am a real estate broker with 5 offices including one in the are of this property. If you have not resolved your issues with this parcel it may be well worth discussing.

Hope this gave you some insight.

The best answer to your question can be provided by a certified or certified general appraiser in your area. Preferably a certified general. There are a number of things that need to be addressed, researched and verified along with the need and purpose of obtaining a value. The appraisal board in your state may have a directory of appraisers to choose from or you can find many in your local phone directory.

Blake, Chris brings up a good point. It may be possible to get an easement by necessity for the property, but you and your agent will need to carefully look at the Title for this property. A local Title Company would be a good place to start.

Sorry, I'm not able to answer your question about value. In general, it depends upon what the property will be used for.
