One of the most common questions land flipping business owners ask is “How do I value a piece of land?” In this episode, of the Forever Cash Podcast, I’ll discuss one of the ways you can do this by looking at the value of houses in the surrounding area.
This podcast was recorded as part of our Winning Wednesday live series. Every Wednesday at 10AM PST on the Land Profit Generator Real Estate Investing Facebook Group, I answer your questions and delve deep into real topics that affect land flipping business owners.

How To Value Land
The first way you, as a land flipping business owner, can value land is by using the assessed value.
This is not 100% reliable, but – depending on your state – it can give you a ballpark figure. What’s crucial to understand is that market value does not equal the assessed value. Instead, the assessed value is a percentage of market value.
However, the main method for valuing land that I want to discuss is backing the value of the property by the value of the surrounding houses.
“Typically, as a rule of thumb, the land on which a house sits is worth 15 – 30% of the total house value.”
We’ll take a look at real-life examples from our students and help them determine the value of their land parcels.
