If I were to offer you up to 5 acres,
your choice of cleared or not,
in a lease of up to 18 years,
what would you propose as a fair exchange?

Wow, that's a really open ended question. There's so many different variables to take into consideration that can have a huge effect on the value of the land.

You can get 5 acres of desert land with zero improvements for <$10K but the price starts to go up quickly if you have water, good soil, in the vicinity of a town, etc.

Can you give some specifics about the property this is being proposed for? Location, climate, soil type and existing vegetation cover, things like that.
