In Rabun County, GA approx. 70% of the land is owned by the National Forest or by Georgia Power around our Lake Burton. So for someone looking to have privacy we have a lot of land backed by national forest. I have one home in a quite area with over an acre of land that is backed by national forest and it is listed at $359,900. Beautiful log with 3 bedrooms.
This market is going to see housing come back I believe before land. Because their are some good buys out there on homes. Some inventory will need to be bought before land can begin to move again.
For anywhere right now you need to find a Realtor willing to take the time and explain their area and where land and homes stand right now. Price is a big key right now. Hope this helps!
