Goldfield is a quaint town that was established during the gold rush, hence its name. Today, this is still a quiet city in the middle of a comeback. However, with a population of less than 500, it is definitely slow-moving. Surprisingly, Goldfield does get its share of tourists looking for paranormal activity. Moreover, this small town has nature trails, a rich history that highlights the Wild West, a stunning desertscape backdrop, everyday conveniences, and more. As a result, the real estate market is growing. Currently, there’s a handful of single-family homes for sale in Goldfield. These available homes range from the mid $90,000s to the low $600,000s and have a median sale price of roughly $200,000.
In general, houses here have between 2-4 bedrooms, 2+ bathrooms, and a minimum of 1,500 square feet of living space. In contrast, land for sale in Goldfield is more readily available, with 10+ land lots on the market right now. At the moment, these available parcels of land range from $3,000 for a 3-acre lot to $15,000,000 for a one-of-a-kind 2,200-acre historical ranch with agricultural land.
