Land Value

Land Value

How much land and the improvements on it are worth, especially in its sale. One calculates capital gains (or losses) on the sale of land by subtracting the land value at purchase from the land value at sale. Generally speaking, land value increases over time, but this is by no means a universal rule.

Land Value
