Re: Retirement Land
Update to an old thread. Bought some land a little over 4 acres, soon found out the county was considering increasing the land requirement to 5 acres for a septic tank permit. The land owner was willing to sell me some more in order to bring it up to 5 acres. I am in the process of closing on the additional acreage. Looking at this old thread made me somewhat amazed thinking of 600K properties mentioned on this thread. I will have about 15K in the raw land when I finish. Electricity, water, phone and road access are all there. No cell phone, too far out now. Don’t know what I will do about internet access. Possibly satellite. No one near me except one guy who doesn’t use electricity! About 16 miles from the nearest small town. Population about 10K. Where I grew up. Not everyone’s idea of a great retirement spot. Which is just perfect for me. Don’t want a place that will become overrun by people during my retirement.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
