Ok guys, I need some help. I know the old saying "you only get what you pay for" and "if it sounds too good to be true," but I am really tempted to buy a 25 acre parcel of land that would not pass a perk test. The land is level, 3/4 tillable and 1/4 woodland with mature trees. It has been on the market for over a year and had one offer that fell through when they couldn't get a satisfactory perk test. The Amish neighbors have been planting soybeans on it for several years. The realtor claims that if you are willing to truck in soil, sand, gravel etc and let it sit for 4 or 5 years that it should then pass a perk test. Is this true? Is there any estimate of how many triaxles of these I would need to make this work? I don't really need the land now but I am thinking it might be good idea if I could build a small retirement cabin on it in 5-7 years when I retire. I know very little about soil and septic systems but apparently this land wouldn't even pass for a sand mound so it must have very little topsoil. Is this a really bad idea?
