Our second property in that area looks like that. My wife has a spot of about 25 acres allocated to her, but it's very "hilly" with higher elevations and lower valleys.

Our biggest issue is that it's still in NC. So land that has been in her family for generations is going the same way as other people who have owned property for years in that area.

You have very high income people that come in and build these huge vacation homes, and the county sees dollar signs from property taxes. Most up there will have modest houses on huge tracts of land, but value is being driven up like crazy because of these huge houses being built on a small lot.

A lot of people up their have actually lost property because they can't afford the hike in taxes.

I know my wife's property taxes have went up astronomically in the last 10 year's. We have a way out by selling, but it's land that they have owned and paid for with blood and sweat decades there is a lot of sentimental value tied to it.
I get substantially more than double that when it comes to snow. See attached below. As for property taxes, based on my assessment, I should see an annual tax bill for about $1,680 on the new place. Our taxes in TN are notably lower than the NC side. My property line is 3.6 miles from North Carolina.
