Ok, what would you do? Our elderly neighbor is putting his land up for auction. There is a 40 acre section that touches our 20 acres. It has 11.3 tillable acres and the rest is trees and pasture. There is a lot of junk (old cars, machinery . . .) on this land and would require new fencing. It does have a stockdam. We were not looking to buy more land but have looked across the fence more than once, never thinking he would sell so soon. It has a nice stand of trees for South Dakota. We are trying to justify buying it; what would we do with it to make it pay off? We are going to the auction but really don't know what it will go for. They are billing it as a possible building site on a paved road. The banker is all for us trying (more money for him) and is willing to put everything into one loan. He thought we could sell part of it later. He mentioned buying it just to keep "others" from moving into the neighborhood; not sure who he has been talking to? What do you think?
