    Ok my two cents. Fair market value of the land is reasonable. Perhaps some small amount extra for the time its been in your family and the sentimental value. But that isn't much. Fair value is fair value.

    Its not that different from selling a house (yes you don't have to sell your house ...at least a lot of the time you don't HAVE to). There isn't a homeowner out there that hasn't thought their house was special and worth more than the market really puts it at. Land is no different.

    I really would just like another piece of grpud, good fishing, next or in public land, a place for a cabin.
    I wasnt using it for cattle, like the neighbors but recreation and hunting.

    Ain't that the truth. Everybody thinks their for-sale property is made of gold.

    Fair market value is fair - in a fair market.

    No market is fair where you are forced to sell your ground.

    What is a power company doing that is flooding land?

    Are they creating another reservoir like TVA, or is it another action that is flooding the "neighbors", so they are just going to take the property? Seems like they would have to prove there was no other alternative in order to exercise eminent domain, which seems even worse if they aren't a government entity.

    The power company will be releasing huge amounts of water, which the did once,.. flooding and washing away banks.
    Little pieces of property just dont come up for sale that are so remote. I would just like the same type of property. An acre along the Snake river, 20 acres of dry hillside. 3 acres of timber.

    I think he is saying he would like an acre of riverfront, or 20 acres of dry hillside, or 3 acres of timber, in exchange for his 6 acres of pasture (with pond)...

    Never hurts to dream big salthunter!

    I was asking because if other landowners are facing eminent domain one wonders what they are doing about it and whether they could find a common course of action.
