I have decided I want to start looking for a place of my own. I have never gone through this process so I am looking for some guidance from THF folks. Not sure where I want to look, but I know I would like something from 50-200 acres, undeveloped hunting property.

Can anyone suggest a website, broker or agent that I could look into to potentially find a piece of property?

Thanks in advance

Where are you looking to buy? What kind of improvements as far as water or electricity?

you need to nail down a budget, which will determine acreage size and then location/locations that you prefer

looking to spend no more than $200K. I would ultimately like to look north and northwest and within 4 hours of North Houston but no opposed to going out a little further for the right deal.

Thanks

It's doable but your gonna be closer to 50 acres than 200 with that budget

Contact an agent and tell him what your looking for

would like to have water and electric and perimeter fencing. House/cabin fine but if not, plan on building own small cabin. Just looking for a small place for the family (Wife and 3 boys) to have for many years to come.

TT85, I realize that my acreage will go down with price I am willing to pay. Just looking around and maybe find that needle in a haystack??

That's gonna jump the price

I sold a guy a place in real county this year with a cabin,electric no well.

53 acres for around $150k but that's about 5-6 hours from Houston

Land sales is like this; you either build it yourself or buy what's on the market, you can't walk up to a window and order up a ranch or farm you take what's out there or you build it or you don't get a place

To be honest, $200k is not a large budget and its gonna limit your choices pretty good

Is this a cash buy or finance?

I totally understand...I am trying to learn as I go since I have never done this before. This would be an all cash purchase. I know I will be limited on the size of place within that budget, especially if it has any improvements whatsoever. I am just looking for advice and and where to turn to so I can do my research. If it isn't possible, I will just have to continue leasing and saving.

My advice would be to talk to a lender and increase your budget

Land is not getting cheaper and interest rates are low
Buy a bigger piece and sell off what you don't want to trim the fat

You need to look everyday on craigslist for a fsbo. Don't skip a day and get your financing in order. A deal will come up every 6 months but if its a deal it will go quick. Start looking at properties even if they don't fit your criteria 100%. You will see whats out there and what is most important to you. Im not opposed to realtors I just don't like paying retail for anything. Pm if you have any questions.
