Normally, the land underneath a home accounts for one-quarter to one-third of a home’s tax assessed value.
So, for a home worth $300k, the land would likely be valued at $75k – $100k.
And then there’s this home, set on an almost one acre lot backing up to the Kenilworth Channel (connecting Cedar Lake and Lake of the Isles, southwest of downtown Minneapolis):
Land value: $819k
Building value: $214k
Total tax assessed value: $1.033M
If there’s a (habitable) home in the Twin Cities with a higher land-to-building ratio . . . I’m not personally aware of it.
