Massive land auction: 11 square miles of southeast Kentucky set for auction

WILLIAMSBURG, Kentucky (May 5, 2020) — Approximately 7,000 acres in southeast Kentucky with abundant marketable hardwoods, streams, ponds and game will be offered in an online auction, with bidding opening at noon Monday, May 25 and continuing through midday on June 4. Albert Burney Auction Company is marketing the land and conducting the auction.

The land, making up 11 square miles, is located in Whitley County, four miles north of the Tennessee state line. It will sell in two tracts or as an entirety. According to a current survey of the timber, the land had 11.4 million board feet of merchantable timber 10 inches or larger, according to Warren Ward, president of the company. The land is selling with mineral rights.

“This is certainly one of the biggest tracts for sale in Kentucky, and tracts this size in the Appalachians are rare. There are considerable stands of highly desirable woods, including red, white, chestnut and other varieties of oak, as well as maple and poplar. “The hardwoods especially are in consistent demand for cabinetry, furniture and trim of high-end homes,” said Ward.

The land includes five free flowing streams running throughout it, with numerous ponds, providing a haven for the deer and other game, as well as settings for use as pasture for those who wish to use the land for grazing.

“I’ve been in this business over 20 years and have sold properties in 40 states and 11 countries, and I’ve never seen a property like this, where the barrier of entry is so attractive and so low but the rate of return is so high.” Warren A Ward, President of Albert Burney.

Investing in Belize is different than investing anywhere else in Central America.  Belize is the only official English speaking country in Central America.  And the Belizean legal system uses English Common Law.  Countries like Taiwan and Kuwait are investing heavily into the infrastructure of Belize making this area of Belize a new gold mine of opportunity. With the new roads and bridges, Northern Belize will be even more accessible for tourist and growth.
