Rich Tracts of Land Going Cheap in Mississippi

Jun 14, 2008
Land is one of those commodities that lasts, holds its value, appreciates well, and can be used in variety of different ways. Unfortunately, there is less and less of it available with every passing year. In fact, some states have been developed to the max. One state with a lot of land on the market is Mississippi. In addition to being plentiful, Mississippi acreage is also affordable.

For example, a one acre lot - that could cost $300,000 to $500,000 in Utah and even more in New Jersey - can cost as little as $3,000 in Mississippi. Of course, price will be affected by location, accessibility and quality, but in general Mississippi land is a great deal for your money. Depending on your needs, you can buy anywhere from one acre to hundreds as well.

There are many good ways to use land in Mississippi. At such a great price, Mississippi land could be a good place to develop a new luxury resort, a factory or a residential community. With more than fifty percent of the state covered in trees, lumber is a thriving industry. Farming is also an important part of the economy because Mississippi has some of the richest south in the south. Much of the areas fertility can be attributed to the silt deposits that remain after periodic flooding.

If you want to avoid flooding, you might want to purchase properties away from the Mississippi River. Coastal areas are situated at lower elevations so they might be less attractive to some people as well. On the other hands, there are a lot of benefits to building by the water. In addition to the scenery, rivers and the coastline facilitate recreational activities like kayaking, canoeing, fishing swimming and water skiing.

The Mississippi state government is making a conscious effort to diversify its economy, but a few industries that could benefit from setting up headquarters in Mississippi without making many changes would include construction, furniture, paper, produce and hunting businesses.

If you are looking for the right parcel of Mississippi land for sale, a Realtor's services could be a valuable resource. They can help you sort through hundreds of listings based on your budget, needs, development plans and geographical interests in a quick and efficient manner. In addition to helping you find the land, a Realtor can help you close the deal. Whether your investment is small or large, you want it to be secure.
