Default Amish farming's economic competitiveness rumor

A freind who'd priced farms in upstate New York State (USA) mentioned
that when an Amish parish was known to be moving into an area, the
rockbottom prices for abandoned farms went up.
Doesn't this show that the Amish are outcompeting US ag. school farms
at the bottom line? And that US farmers sold out or went under on land
that Amish know they can use profitably?
