You Can Buy Mountain Land For $2,500 Per Acre in Murphy, North Carolina!

Real Estate Agent with Country Homes and Land Murphy NC Realtor


Eager buyers are snapping up large tracts of mountain land at bargain prices in Murphy, North Carolina and Cherokee County.  The downturn in the real estate market has created once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for savvy investors.

As I mentioned in my recent market report on 2010 land sales in the mountains, several parcels of land of 100 acres or more recently sold for $2,500 per acre.  Many smaller tracts of land are currently for sale for under $5,000 per acre, including one acre building lots with community water.

Lots with incredible mountain views that previously sold for $50,000 to $100,000 or more are on the market today for under $20,000

I sold a lot with a 3 state long range mountain view in Grand Vista Subdivision in 2006 for $130,000.  Last fall the lot across the road with a similar view sold as a foreclosure for $14,000.


Just this morning, one of our sellers reduced the price on this 40 acre parcel of land in the Peachtree community to $5,000 per acre. 

     This tract of land has both pasture and woods, with beautiful mountain views and numerous gentle building sites.

     Here's a view of the level pasture and the woods beyond.






This property is  on a paved road in a great location just 2 miles from Murphy Medical Center and Tri-County Community College.

With over 1,500 parcels of land for sale right now in Cherokee County, there is a huge selection in every price range. 

Whether you're looking for waterfront property, mountain view lots or a large tract of land for a family estate or future investment, there's never been a better time to find your dream getaway here in the mountains!
