    I am curious to find out what land prices are in/around Gainesville, Florida. Wondered if someone who lives in or near the area could do me a favor and pick up some free real estate guides, especially ones containing ads for land, and maybe a copy of the classified ads from the Sunday edition of the Gainesville paper and mail them to me. Will gladly reimburse for shipping, handling, gas, etc.

    If anyone happens to have any info on hand, please post here.

    Specifically, I am interested in knowing the price for 40 acres of planted pines around Archer. I just had my parcel there appraised but am uncertain of the accuracy of the appraisal. Would greatly appreciate the help.

    This may not help much, but the Florida Market Bulletin has its classifieds online. This is the link to the "land for sale":

    http://www.florida-agriculture.com/fmb/farmland.htm

    Most of the bigger real estate firms have online search engines too.

    Good luck!

    (I live in Saint Cloud, FL -- near Orlando -- and the prices are outrageous down this way!)
