This seminar centers on concepts for building-intensive properties in rural areas. The price allocation between land and building is complex. Most situations involve multiple buildings or rural “compounds," where consistent analysis is key. Mini case studies emphasize differing uses in several geographic locations across the United States. Property types range from Executive Retreats to Fishing Estates, Mountain Campgrounds purchased and converted to single use due to low property inventories, Equestrian Ranchettes, Mixed Timber/Recreation types, Trophy Ranches, River Horse Facility, Barn Restoration, and small- to medium-sized properties purchased in several hundreds to thousands of acres as “getaways” from the impact of COVID-19. Are we reporting Market Value or COVID Value?
