No matter your budget there are options for you. The state’s average cost per acre of agricultural land comes in at $3100. The state also offers some of the lowest property taxes in the country. Property taxes are calculated based on the assessed value of the land, which is 10% of the appraised value. The millage rate used to calculate the exact tax changes by county with the state average total property tax being $398, or 3 to 4 cents per dollar of assessed value. The state varies as you travel from the northern portion to the southern portion. The north is mountainous with average winter low temperatures in the 30s. The south is flat and borders the Gulf of Mexico. Many parts of the state see average summer highs above 90 degrees.
