Wow, I just made $60K (theoretical) on a $130K investment in 5 years!  lol 
Unfortunately, my theoretical gains in value translate to real-world property taxes.

It says my lot is
Lot 3,920 sqft ... that's about right

Have fun with zillow.com if you're bored.  i.e. type in 85119 (my area code) and it shows a 1 acre piece of desert starting at about $90K.  ... but these are the last ones east until you hit the Superstitions.
