Hi Mr. Miles!

I am located in the Hiram/Douglasville market. Your question is somewhat difficult to answer because there are so many factors that go into properly putting a value on a tract of raw land.

Depending on whether the land is on an easement, possibly has commercial potential, has paved road frontage, has any portion of it in a flood plain, has access to county water and other utilities, etc. all play a big part in what a piece of land is actually worth. It would certainly be on a case by case basis with the biggest factor of course being exactly where the land happens to be located in Hiram or Douglasville.

Generally speaking, this would be an excellent time to buy a piece of land because the value overall per acre is the lowest I have seen in many years. You could expect to get a really good deal right now on some land as compared to the prices that we were seeing 8-10 years ago.

Please call or e-mail me so I can help you identify some suitable land for you and then I can help you determine the current market value of each tract you are interested in based on it's individual characteristics.

I hope that helps you!

Have a great day!

One way to find a real estate agent is to ask your friends and relatives who they have used in the past and have provided the greatest service. Word of mouth recommendations are usually a great way to find an agent.

Another way would be to attend a number of Open Houses in the area you want to purchase a home. That way, you have an opportunity to speak with real estate agents and find those who may be a good fit for you.

Another way would be to Google homes for sale and real estate agents in the area you want to purchase and see whose names come up in the top rankings. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), 87% of the buyers start their home search online. Those real estate agents who come up in the top rankings in Google for the area that you want to purchase a home are effectively marketing their real estate services and listings, and probably will be a good choice as they are probably the most active agents for the area.
