Find cheap land for sale in Tennessee by searching on sites such as LandWatch.com, LandAndFarm.com, BillyLand.com or RealtyTrac.com, as of 2015. Use the search features on these sites to identify land in foreclosure, in need of maintenance or in rural and unpopulated areas to find the cheapest options.
One of the most common ways to find cheap land for sale in Tennessee is to search for foreclosures or lots for sale through repossession auctions. In these cases, a bank or government agency typically takes possession of the land due to the previous owners' inability to pay loans or taxes on the land and is seeking to sell it quickly to recoup as much of the lost revenue as possible. RealtyTrac.com offers tools that allow you to search exclusively for land foreclosures, with additional features that enable you to narrow results according to price, size and location.
Both LandWatch.com and LandAndFarm.com occasionally feature foreclosures among their listings, but generally provide listings from a wide range of sources. In order to identify cheap land through such sites, use the location filters to limit the search to an inland area with a low population, as these plots are typically less desirable. Avoid land that has the amenities for farming or similar activities, as they are usually more expensive than fully undeveloped land.
