Cheap Land for Sale in Wyoming

Land for Sale

The expansively rugged land called Wyoming resonates with the spirit of the American West. For anyone who has spent time in Wyoming, the state evokes vivid images: cattle standing in the lee of snow fences; children riding horses along dusty roads; weather-beaten ranches lit by the slanting light of late afternoon; oil-covered roustabouts struggling with the furious machinery of a drill rig; the sounds of drumming and singing at a powwow; and cow towns where the area code is larger than the population. The frontier spirit pervades both Wyoming’s landscape and its people, mixing the past and present so completely that sometimes it appears time stands still. There is also something else – a large supply of cheap land for sale in Wyoming that can present some amazing investment and speculation opportunities.

If you are interested in cheap land for sale in Wyoming, and especially the vast central and southwestern part of the state, then you will find some of the best rural land investment opportunities available anywhere in the United States. In fact, Wyoming is one of the five states containing the lowest priced land for sale in the nation. The other four states are Texas, 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, Wyoming, Texas and South Dakota probably offer the best combination of low prices, 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 is costs $199 per-acre while the half-acre lot costs $5,990 per-acre. The key to success in buying rural land 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 Wyoming, however, than the price itself. While the price is of paramount, importance market desirability and applicable subdivision regulations are also major concerns. Wyoming rates at the top of the list in all three categories. Land prices in Wyoming are very affordable, almost every land investor in the United States wants to own a tract of land in Wyoming and there are very few state or county subdivision regulations affecting the division or sale of land in 160-acre sizes or larger.

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