A neighboring place sold for $490,000. It is 160 acres. Has 30 acres of sorry irrigated ground. The rest is dry sagebrush covered hill. The buyer is in construction over in Boise.It's funny, no one mentioned land cost. Here in Idaho it's doubled and tripled. 30 acres behind me is listed at $650K. I have no idea on how you'd make that work. You have to be rich and looking to have fun with about 12 cows on that, or rich and buy that as your hay ground.
We have been doing battle with Idaho Power over a powerline right of way. They brought in an independent appraiser. She appraised our place at 2.8 times more than we paid for it 5 years ago.
