Average Value Of Homes On Acreage
We often use the average price per square foot of homes sold to estimate the appreciation in the housing market. This is fine with a large volume of data, but it really does not provide clarity when looking at homes on acreage.
Think about the actual formula involved: Sales Price (divided by) Square Footage. This means that the price per square foot formula gives no value to the land. Can you imagine believing that a 3,000 square foot home on 1,000 acres is worth no more than a 3,000 square foot home on 1.25 acres?
I believe there is relative value in the graph if we follow the direction (trend) of the change. For example, the average value of a home on acreage at the market bottom in 2012 was $105 per square foot, while the average value of a home on acreage in 2021 is $163 per square foot. This represents a change of 55% or an annualized appreciation rate of about 5%.
Average Size Of Homes On Acreage
The average size of homes sold on acreage has sporadic changes each year, not surprising as with relatively few sales, volatility in the data should be expected.
For the 13 years covered in our dataset, the average size of homes sold on acreage appears to be just over 2,700 square feet, which also happens to be this year's average.
