Looking for rural land in Southwest Wisconsin?

For those of you looking for information on rural land in Southwestern Wisconsin, you have got to check out Jay Frazier’s blog post on Rural land home sales.

Jay spent a lot of time looking at MLS stats for rural land in Southwest Wisconsin and shares tons of data in the above linked post. He notes that sales are up 13% in the last quarter of 2011 and up in 6 of the 7 counties he studied.  Like residential property, prices are down approximately 4%.  Current list prices per acre are far off of sold prices per acre which explains the high inventory unsold.  To sell, land sellers may have to adjust their expectations.  Take  look at Jay’s charts listing detailed sold acreage including breakouts into tillable, wooded, pasture and more.
