Land for sale in North Texas encompasses Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, Wichita Falls, Sherman-Denison, Texarkana, Longview and Tyler. The north and east sides of the region are bordered by Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. In this region, small land sales consist of land parcels 33 acres or smaller.
There has a been significant amount of land being subdivided into either residential or recreational tracts coming down from the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington Metroplex and up from the northern Houston area due to Region Five’s Piney Wood landscape, which has good interior roads, surface water and woodland for hunting. Region Four is also the largest timber producer in the state. “The continuing subdivision of pasture lands has significantly reduced sales that were larger than 300 acres,” said Renee Harvey, a Texas REALTOR® actively involved in small land sales in Region Four. “Well over half of the land in Region Four is either native or improved pasture tracts and because of the demand for rural residency, 300 acre land sales became four, five or even six purchases.”
