Cheap Land for Sale in Texas

Land for Sale

The state of Texas is different; in fact it has always been kind of like a separate country unto itself. Perhaps that is because of all 50 states Texas is the only state that actually was an independent country, the Republic of Texas, before it entered the union. Texas has always been associated with cowboys, oil, multimillionaires and big land. And the most dramatically beautiful region of Texas is Trans-Pecos – the immense western part of the state that stretches from the outskirts of San Antonio for over 500 miles to El Paso.  West Texas alone is bigger than many states and probably receives more attention than any other place in the nation from investors searching for cheap land deals.

If you are interested in cheap land for sale in Texas, and especially the vast western part of the state, then you will find some of the best land speculation and investment opportunities available anywhere in the United States. In fact Texas is one of the five states containing the cheapest land for sale in the nation. The other four states are Wyoming, South Dakota, New Mexico and Nevada. No other state in the United States – be it any state east of the Mississippi, any of the Great Plains states or Arizona, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Oregon or Alaska – will have land for sale at cheaper prices than available in these five states. Of the five states, however, Texas, Wyoming and South Dakota probably offer the best combination of low prices, wide market demand and relatively lenient subdivision regulations.

The term “cheap” land refers to the per-acre price and not the per-parcel price. For instance a 160-acre tract for $31,840 is a far cheaper price than a half-acre lot for $2,995. The reason the 160-acre tract is cheaper is because it costs only $199 per-acre while the half-acre lot costs $5,990 per-acre. The key to success in buying cheap land for sale in Texas is to concentrate on the per-acre price and not the per-parcel price. Since the Pilgrims landed in 1620 and Americans began migrating west, land dealers have made fortunes buying land by the acre and selling lots by the parcel!

There is more to consider in buying cheap land for sale in Texas, however, than the price itself. While the price is of paramount importance, market desirability and applicable subdivision regulations are also major concerns. Texas rates at the top of the list in all three categories. Land prices in Texas are very affordable, almost every land investor in the United States wants to own a tract of land in Texas and there are very few state or county subdivision regulations affecting the division and sale of land in 40-acre sizes or larger.

In summary cheap land for sale in Texas offers some of the cheapest per-acre prices to be found anywhere in the United States and is an excellent place to acquire a large tract of cheap land!
