Your state sucks
I’ve been searching around for an affordable piece of land to hunt which CT does have. Problem is $2500 a year in taxes for vacant land wtf.
Maybe the taxes suck but if you think that's bad look at NY tax's. Land, ambulance, school tax.
I paid $1800/year for 100 acres with no building's.
All you have to do is apply for farming or using the land for animals and the tax rate changes.
There are some options classification as forest, open space farm. State sets assessment rates on those acres. There are options but connecticut aint cheap any way you figure it. Just give it time. The slow suck of people out of Connecticut should free up land. I heard more people moved "United Van Lines said 60 percent of their customers in the state last year were moving out and 40 percent were moving in. Connecticut's outbound rate ranked fourth, topped only by New York, New Jersey and Illinois (63 percent)."
According to the survey, the top destinations for people moving out of Connecticut were Florida, California, Texas, North Carolina and Massachusett. Are looking to get away from the Connecticut people moving to mass from connecticut?
Your state suck??? Hunt somewhere else then.
Tell us something we dont know.
I was looking at land in Ohio....taxes not bad...i looked quick and its seems you can find a land for 1000 a acre ball park
Easy Buckiller, mine sucks just as bad hence why I’m looking at CT also lol.

CT is either the worst or close to the worst state for financial stability, taxes, cost of living, smart politicians, and tick counters (sorry Doc, had to do it). I'm telling myself to move out and hunt somewhere else when I retire at the end of the year, X2 Spike78.
Or you could enroll the vacant land in Public Act 490 so it is taxed at a lower rate.
Thanks Doc but it’s a gamble to find out if you can get the reduced tax rate after you buy the land. SWK, I have been looking mainly at Tolland and some of Windham County as it’s not too far from where I live in MA. Theirs a ton of cheap land in NY as well just way further ride.
Depends how many possible building lots...Road frontage with power on it ur gonna b charged for building lots. I think it still is 6 open acres to put it in open space so u need 8 acres min because they take 2 out if u have one building lot. I know of 2 people going through this now. Perk test ect. Open space will cut the tax almost in half but not on the potential building lots even if u have farming on those lots. also if its in open space u cant sell it for 7 years or u have to back pay the tax... Good Luck I do see more & more up for sale
I’m trying to balance between an investment and hunting land for the most bang for my buck but to get the most acres I may have to buy some garbage land strictly for hunting but a buildable lot would be nice. Thanks Doc and SWK for the tips.
Here ya go bud.cheap price
Ha Notme that price will put me out on the street. My house isn’t even half of that!

I'm somewhat familiar with pa490 but I will say there are probably better states to invest with the conn. Population shrinking. Simply supply and demand.

Wondering what those tax's are?
Damn. Tennis players make that much coin? Be nice if I was good at something.
