    Sounds like a great property. Is the price good for the area? Are the financing terms good? Are there any liens against it? Are there restrictive covenents involved? What do the neighbors have to say about the property, price and anything else? Is there plenty of water and access to it? Is there legal access to the property? What easements are on it and for what?

    Just SOME of the questions I would ask.

    No, that sounds fairly reasonable. But still "haggle over the price. Make sure you have a tractor with a "bush hog" for mowing. You can also plant trees and when they reach a mature age, you can sell them. Also, if your land has alfalfa and clover, you can ask a local farmer or place an add for "hay bailing". Most who will do this for you charge per bale. We made aproximately 550$ with half of it going to the man whole bailed the hay for us. Not bad considering he did all the work. You can also plant a really big garden or even put another double or single wide on your property and rent it out if you choose so. I miss living on our property! Best of luck to you!

    Sounds great. And you can always build on it in a few years!

    You don’t own the land in any part of Texas, Texas owns it, so those 18+ acres aren’t yours, the laws may have changed though, it was a while ago.

    Also you should make sure there are no liens against it.

    Good luck
