Much like the state's overall housing market, small land sales in Texas are seeing high demand, competitive market conditions, and robust sales and price growth. The Texas Association of REALTORS® released the 2015 Texas Small Land Sales Report today to offer a look into how this market has performed over the past year. 

The definition of a "small" land tract varies across the state due to the variety in land characteristics. Here are a few statewide highlights from the report: 

  • 5,282 small land tracts were sold in Texas in 2014—a 20.69% increase from the previous year. 
  • The average price per acre increased 3.5% from last year to $5,018.
  • Median tract size was 20 acres, which is unchanged from 2013.
