Q: What Are Land Values Like in South Central Texas?

Posted by Chip Bubela on Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 at 2:10pm.

Here’s an estimate of what rural real estate costs in South Central Texas.  

What’s going on with land market values these days? It’s harder to run land values because no two pieces of property are exactly the same, so we’ll go over the average price per acre for different-sized acreages in Colorado, Fayette, and Lavaca counties to help you get an idea. These averages were recorded over the past six months:

Colorado County:

  • 1-15 acres: $14,852 per acre

  • 16-30 acres: $11,986 per acre

  • 31-60 acres: $7,702 per acre

  • 61-100 acres: $6,922 per acre

  • 100+ acres: $3,890 per acre

Fayette County:

  • 1-15 acres: $26,236 per acre

  • 16-30 acres: $12,341 per acre

  • 31-60 acres: $8,945 per acre

  • 61-100 acres: $6,126 per acre

  • 100+ acres: $5,168 per acre

Lavaca County:

  • 1-15 acres: $10,709 per acre

  • 16-30 acres: $7,235 per acre

  • 31-60 acres: $7,075 per acre

  • 61-100 acres: $5,926 per acre

  • 100+ acres: $4,911 per acre

Keep in mind, you may find 100 acres priced at $8,000 per acre somewhere out there, but that doesn’t mean the land is overpriced. There are other factors to consider too. For example, does it have good fencing or access to electricity? Can you drill a decent water well there?
