      There's still a lot of open land in the mid- and upper Hudson Valley.

          This makes the area very desirable to people who like a quiet and pastoral environment.
Less and less land is available for sale, however, so prices keep going up.   In particular, small parcels of 3 to 10 acres are scarce. Much of the land in Northern Dutchess and Columbia Counties is not available
 at all because of several factors.   For example, many land owners put portions of large parcels
into a land conservancy, or lease it to a farmer in order to save on taxes.  Other owners keep land in the family and never sell it.  

      There's a lot of pressure to keep subdivisions out, too.  Even when land is subdivided, there are large areas that have 5 acre zoning.  The price of land in this area runs from around $ 3,000 per acre
 to over $ 40,000 per acre. A good guideline for raw land suitable for building is around $10,000
 per acre and up.   If it doesn't already have a Board of Health Approval ( BOHA )  for a septic system,
 it can take up to 4 months during the busy season and cost several thousand dollars.

         If you are selling your land, you can greatly speed the process and receive a significantly higher
price if you do any of the following:  get a BOHA, survey it, put in a rough driveway, clear portions of it,
or apply for a basic subdivision permit.  For large parcels,   it's also very helpful to have some aerial photographs and a topographic map.
