Fossiliferous land for sale

How hard is it to find fossil bearing land for sale? How expensive?

I assume some geologic periods may be easier or less sought after than others.

I suppose that it depends on where it is.  Desert land that may contain fossils, petrified wood and maybe dinosaurs is cheap.

Land in Florida that may contain fish, shells, mammal parts and Meg teeth may be expensive.

Land in the central states may be in between.  So this is hard to answer.

The main theme in real estate value is...  Location, Location, Location.

I am sure others will add to this.

With a geo map, formation specific fossil knowledge, and Zillow, you are in business.  Generally fossils don't accrue additional tangible value to the land unless dealing with something with high commercial demand, like dinos, Megs, maybe some of the prettier ammos from the Pierre Shale, etc.

There’s plenty of undeveloped land here in SW Florida that is pretty inexpensive but you’d need to get about 20 feet down and run pumps to successfully hunt most of it

I've got some wonderful swampland  you can pick up for a song.

Even comes stocked with gators and clouds of mosquitoes for your enjoyment. Just sign on the dotted line.
