November BLM Land Auction Results

By | Market Watch, Buyers' Knowledge, Sellers' Knowledge

The Bureau of Land Management conducted an online sale, offering 16 parcels of public land totaling over 600 acres. The BLM successfully sold nine parcels totaling 589.53 acres in the northwest valley, for a total of $93,141,000. Under the terms of the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act of 1998, 85% of the total funds from the sales will be allocated towards projects such as park development, capital improvements on federal lands, acquisition of environmentally sensitive land, hazardous fuels reduction, and landscape restoration. The remaining 15% will go towards the State of Nevada General Education Fund and the Southern Nevada Water Authority. Among the bidders who purchased parcels of various sizes, developer Lawrence Canarelli purchased the largest parcel up for auction, 505 acres near the west end of Centennial Parkway, for $55 million . Some of the smaller parcels are located near the Kyle Canyon and U.S. 95 interchange. The BLM removed a 225-acre parcel from the sale, due to an appraisal issue. The parcels that were not sold may be re-nominated for consideration in future land sales by the local government.

The value of your land may be greater than you think.

Multiple Property AllianceSM – Explained

Simply stated, the assembled value of smaller properties is often greater than the value if sold individually.

Although a property may be located in a high-demand market area, small parcels are undesirable for developers.

Developers require larger development sites to benefit from the economies of scale. They will often reject sites that are less than 5 acres and pay a premium for those that are 7.5 acres or greater.

There are very few sites with common ownership that meet this criteria. Consequently, high-demand development sites must be created by assembling multiple parcels with cooperating landowners.

When you create critical mass, you create value.

Larger sites allow homebuilders to spread the fixed costs of development over more homes, considerably reducing the cost per unit. When homebuilders save money, they can pay more for land while still increasing their profit.

Our proven strategy of a Multiple Property AllianceSM significantly benefits the landowners, as well as the homebuilders.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss your participation in a Multiple Property AllianceSM and provide you with a Broker Price Opinion. This document includes a market analysis and an independent opinion of value.
