This website www.ozarkland.com might be a good place for some people to look into buying their homestaed property. The man who owns these properties in northern arkansas and southern missouri offers to sell raw land for just a down payment, then monthly payments normally well under $200 a month, no credit checks. I had a piece of his property a few years ago, it is legitimate. Maybe this can help some of you who are looking for land. I am thinking of buying another parcel/parcels and building a cob or strawbale home, or some type of alternative home and then selling to someone who wants to homestead. Hope this helps.
