Raysor Creek Landholding
A+ Location, Prestigious Plantation Address, and Unbelievable Price Adjacent to Ted Turner's 33,000 acre Avalon Plantation and also Legendary Turkey Scratch Plantation
Quail woods, Hardwoods, Open Rolling Hills, Great Soils, and Flowing Creeks. This could be a ranch conversion or a dream hunting property with unlimited big buck game flow.
I first heard great things about this property when I began my career 27 years ago. Its reputation for wildlife, timber, and ranching is well-known and the location is in a great setting and in a great area. It's an honor to be a part of its sale. We are even more proud to be offering it for a quick sale at $1,850/Acre. This property is priced at what we would expect a typical timber property would sell for but without the better soils and premier location, wildlife flow and neighborhood that this property has.
Today's most notable neighbors are Ted Turner's 33,000 acre Avalon Plantation that for two miles lies directly across Turkey Scratch Road and also touches Turkey Scratch Plantation to the southern border. Raysor Creek itself meanders along the eastern edge of the property with several other creeks flowing throughout. The wildlife habitat and diversity on this property is exceptional. The 905+/- acres contains a sample of all of the primary habitats this area has to offer from 172 acres of mature pine timber stands to 253 acres of recently planted (and very well prepared) pines that could be allowed to grow during their highest appreciation age, or simply and quickly converted into farmland/pasture. The hardwood stands are impeccably beautiful and we have seen estimates of the property's timber value at a very respectable $523 per acre.
Per the NWI data, this property is comprised of only 36% wetlands which is the same amount of wetlands as all the great cattle ranches in the area, but this property is only $1,850 per acre (recent finished cattle ranch sales in the area are at $3,000 per acre)!

"We really like this property, love the neighborhood, and actually considered adding it as an annex to Lick Skillet Plantation if the timing was better. This is the kind of investment we like to see for these types of properties which are former farm and ranch lands that were converted into timber 50+ years ago, with great water, bordering two major plantations, and now priced right to be improved for immediate equity.
There is a good mix of all habitat types including quail woods. We have vendors pricing ponds and other improvements now so that this property can quickly be brought up to high quality status which will increase the value back to what land is trading in this neighborhood which is easily $1,000 per acre more than the ask. Our client set the price for a very quick sale."

“At the price this tract is being offered at, it would be ideal for any of the primary land uses in the area. However, to us, because of the quality of the soils, the 425 acres of areas in pine would make an extremely good cattle and farmland conversion with an extremely good wildlife and aesthetic component. The property has much more roll than the maps immediately indicate, and the percentage of wetlands is right in-line with the average for properties in the region.
Finished ranches in the area are selling for $2,900 to $3,500 per acre with almost no timber value and industrial timberland with zero higher and better use, poor soils and poor locations are selling for the price this is offered at. The fact that it is on Raysor Creek which is one of the largest tributaries to the Aucilla River makes a conservation play on the hardwood areas extremely attractive and lets you harvest value without having to cut the hardwoods. The 172 acres in mature timber would make very good quail woods, as well, or great wooded pasture."
