In that case, Sell!!! I would pull 5-10 million easy even for undeveloped land. Developed lots near me are going for 100K for 1/3 acre.

it's crazy how expensive commercial land in even wny can be.  i was looking for about 2 acres for a project that i want to complete.  i went a few minutes in one direction from my office, and 2 acres is going for $500,000.  i looked in the opposite direction that 5 mins where i'm from, and although it's not as desirable, the cost of the 2 acres is $35,000.  it may be 7-8 miles from the two lots.

Sell it all to the highest bidder, in parcels or all at once depending on the zone. Invest it all in low cost index funds, and reinvest the dividends for 20 years while I keep working. Cash out when I'm 50 and buy a small private island in the keys or the Caribbean.

I would let Christopher Robin and his friends have the run of the place.

100 acres where I live now?  Well there's a slight problem with that seeing there is nowhere here where there is 100 acres available.  Up the road a bit in Sonoma I'd sell, sell, sell.  That would fetch about $2-5m.

Do I have any money to develop it? Or is it I have 100 acres just given to me like I am now and have to go from there?

100 acres on the Eastern slope of the Shenandoah valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

 

I often see lots of cows and deer.   There is also River Rafting on the Shenandoah and Potomac up near Harpers Ferry, along with Zip Lines, vineyards, equestrian boarding, Alpaca farms, Christmas Tree farms......... 

 

 

Its funny, I've seen 100 acres filled with homes in 3 years and another  100 acres 5 miles away sit for 3 years and only 3 homes being built on it. 

 

 

If housing is booming and you don't mind Yankees moving in as your neighbors SELL.  

 

Like CARY  (Containment Area for Relocated Yankees)

The taxpayer funded Super Villain lairs are out in West Virginia where they believe it's far enough from any residual effects from an attack

Good lord, I'd sell it. Land near downtown Austin goes for roughly $1.5 million an acre. I could do a lot with $150 million.

I would not cut the grass myself.

A flat acre in Buckhead can draw $800k to a million. I'm not far away in distance, but I am very far away in price. :(

Still, residential development would be the most likey outcome. They are just completing an amazing mixed use development on about 65 acres where the Atlanta Braves new stadium is.

As a wise person once said, if I wanted to disappoint two people at the same time, I'd just go to dinner with my parents. :)


And why would that take 100 acres? Are you doing it right?

You have no money, I would say. If you want to develop it, get a mortgage on it.
