Cheap Land near Dayton, Nevada in Gold Canyon Gorge
This vacant lot lies just 10 minutes north of Dayton inside the historic and picturesque Gold Canyon gorge in northern Nevada, and directly fronts the main highway in downtown Silver City, a small residential community steeped in mining history. Gold Creek meanders north-south down the center of the property, leaving plenty of build space on the east half of the lot.
- No Deed Restrictions
- Beautiful & Historic Mountain Setting
- Seasonal Creek (“Gold Creek”) on-site
- Extensive Direct Road Frontage
- Priced about 45% Below Market
- Just 10 minutes from Dayton & shopping
- Power & Water Available
PROPERTY: This 0.58 acre lot is mostly clear, dotted with sagebrush and featuring the cedar-lined Gold Creek, that runs on an approximate north-south line through the center of the property. A graded driveway, which is also accessible by the neighbor to the north, runs through the east half of this lot and leaves plenty of space on both sides for development. That driveway connects to Hwy 342, a paved public road which fronts this lot for 150 feet. The east half of the lot is generally flat, accessible to power & municipal water, and there are no structures on site (except for an old VW bug . . . inoperable but still a classic!) so the whole package is very ready for your development. Silver City was once a bustling Wild West mining town — site of the Comstock Lode’s first silver mill — but it’s now a tiny residential community of about 170 folks. The nearest grocery store is Smith’s and it’s just over a 10 minute drive down the same winding, picturesque canyon highway that fronts this property. When it’s time to hit the road on a weekend trip, pass by Dayton State Park, a quiet little area to take the family for a picnic or an overnight camping trip. Here, you have plenty of restaurants and retail options. Drive about 10 minutes further to Nevada’s capital of Carson City on the next day to experience more wonders. The historic downtown shopping district is a treasure trove for the antique lover and selective shopper searching outside box stores. Never fear though, Walmart is here too. If you love something more outdoor, you can head straight to Washoe Lake State Park, offering scenic mountain views on 8,053-acre preserve offering boating, hiking, camping & other activities; or a little farther to big and beautiful Lake Tahoe!

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
OUTSIDE FINANCING: Your best deal for financing will come from a local bank or credit union and we can help you find a great deal. Land loans typically require about 15-25% down.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why we price our properties at below market value, and the answer is really simple: because we can, and that’s our core business model. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and deeply liquidated rates, and by passing this discount on to our buyers, we can sell land quickly . . . and more of it! In fact, our average property only lasts 2-3 weeks on the market (vs. industry average of about 6 months).
DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
