You'll find homes and land for sale in plenty throughout West Virginia. A state with a long-declining population, it is now a desirable destination for rural living. Though mountain property and log cabins were most strongly associated with real estate in West Virginia, farms and vacation properties and homes in towns and small cities are growing more widely available.

West Virginia's rural landscapes include both mountain and broad-valley settings and promise to increase in value as land use changes from industrial to agricultural and recreational.

High-tech mansions, as well as log cabins, seem equally suited to the countryside and its villages and small cities. Land for sale by owners and owner-financed land may be found throughout West Virginia, while free land and land-trust parcels and lost-cost acreage may sometimes be located in more rural areas.
