New Land Find. The One?

ctnwdIt looks like I’m on the track for some land again.  This one fell into my lap like good things usually do if I wait long enough.

I have a Relative who is a realtor in a nearby small town where many of my other relatives live.  She called me the other day and told me about 8 Acres that are just about to go on the market.  At first I was put off by the amount of acres which is more than I need or want to pay taxes on but then I realized that I could probably keep what I want then sell the rest right away. Genius!

It is close to 8 acres at $11,000 per acre making the whole purchase $88,000.  I can write a check for that and then turn around and sell 6 acres and get back $66,000.  (maybe more!)  The cost for three acres would be $33,000 which is very excellent.

As shown in the photo above, the large overall blue square shows the 8 acres.  The smaller square is the three acres I would probably keep.  The larger section has a nice sized tank but I don’t really need that.  Maybe, maybe not.

ctnwdsvI’ve analyzed it as much as I can from satellite and google street images but I plan on going to visit it this Saturday.  At first I didn’t like what I saw because it is completely cleared so my first requirement of privacy is nonexistent.  I really wanted to look out my windows and see only trees.  There are houses across the street but they are set back from the road a bit.  The left side is forested and the back is a farmer’s crop field. Kind of nice.  I wish they had cows.  I would love to have cows at my fence.

ctnwdnghbI was hoping for instant privacy.  It will take a year before I start building so I could immediately plant some fast growing stuff and it might be tall enough by then.  From my front porch I would see the “hedge” and over that the neighbor’s treetops so I guess that’s technically the view I want to have.

I was also off a bit about it because it isn’t the small town I was wanting.  It’s still a bit too close to San Antonio for my comfort but at least it is in another county and far out in the country.  As a bonus, I would have other relatives nearby.  That counts for something.

So the more I think about it, the more it grows on me.  We’ll see if physically visiting it this Saturday has a good or bad effect.  At least I am thinking positively about it.  It would be a lot easier than my plan of begging existing land owners to sell me a little bit of their property.  Wish me luck.
