I think your friend may be referring to bank loan requirements that acreage cannot be more than a certain percent of the value of the home: e.g., banks will not appraise acreage for more than 30% of the total value of the property. In other words, the acreage will not be worth more than 30% of the home. Alternately, possibly more than 10 acres would be above a 30% value of a home. Do you think that is what he means?
