Both other agents that responded to your question gave you good answers and asked good questions. Having sold lots of land in that area and all over the east mesa I know three things that are most important:
1. Are the utilities in place or if they are not how close are the electric, phone, & water. There is no gas or
sewer in that area, so is there a septic?
2. Getting bank financing for land is difficult and the required down payment may be as much as 30%.
3. In the actual Moongate area your land will sell better if a mobile home would be allowed.
All of this said, if you were able to offer owner financing with 10-15% down, an interest rate of let's say 6%, with affordable payments, you could balloon the principal balance in 3-5 yrs. and get a better over all price for the property without having to deal with banks or appraisers.

Close to the city and within the city, one acre of land suitable for a single family home can cost from $45,000 to $100,000 or more. In the Moongate area; the distance from the city, the desirability of the land, access to utilities and to nearby schools and shopping might decrease the value considerably from city prices. Zoning for site-built versus manufactured homes might also decrease the acreage value.

There are many factors which can affect the value of land. A specific value would be easier to calculate if I had the exact street location of the land so please contact me if you would like a more accurate assessment.
