9 Important Questions To Ask Before Buying Land In Wyoming
Being a land owner has been the dream of many in Wyoming since the early settlers found their way here many years ago. According to landwatch.com, Wyoming has nearly $3 billion worth of property for sale and you may be pretty surprised at how low the prices are for a good chunk of land. Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota all have low populations and lots of open land. That makes finding and buying the land a little easier.
In total, figures show that there are around 443,000 acres of land for sale. The average large established Wyoming Farm, Ranch or other substantial land sale is about $1 million. Compared to other states, Wyoming is a relatively cheap state to purchase land and if you're a fan of hunting, fishing, riding horses, camping, riding ATV's or just being floored by beautiful sights this state is for you.
