Its HOT HOT HOT here. I mean they are growing fast as heck. That the major reaosn I invested in land here. The wife and I loved it here, back then. Now, its starting to get crazy. Way to populated. Checking out at any major retailer is taking longer thenit did for me to fill a shopping buggy and such. I went t Home Depot today for Plexy Glass to spend OVER 1 HOUR IN LINE for two items. Its nuts here. The realestate market is WAY over priced. I can not afford a farm here. I mean no one can. We are thinking and will be meeting with a agent tomarrow about liquidating all out investment other then our home that sits on 30 acres. The rest will be 28 rental homes all redone. All paid for. 3 plots at 3 acres and many open lots. 4 commercial areas. Shop, stores, tavern small mini strip mall. 2 industrial sites one with rail access (alone worth 2.6 :buds: ). I bet the agents will be fighting over this! I have no idea what their commision fee is. I know I will work it down. We figure the rental homes are worth 1.8 million on the easy side. You figure in the rest. We should be able to cash out and do fine. :clap: We are THINKING about leaving this area and finding a nice plot in North Dakota or Iowa. Maybe Even Norther Nevada. Buy the land. Build our simple efficant solor powered and insulated home with wood heat and wind to boot. Buy a truck and trailer for me to play with with my own MC. Do our deal for our selves and invest in the farm. Not other crap. I have check in many places. We can do fine in all 3. In North Dakota we could do 1k acres. Iowa almost 800 Nevada were we want to move 6k. Now, Nevada is alot of land. But they have tricky laws and most of the land is none usable other then mining. There is water and some lush areas. All I need is a bit. Iowa is almost a wash out for us. To much full time farming and grain. I also have family there and the familiy farm is there. It would kinda be a bad thing. I will not farm the family land. To much family around there. North Dakota is GREAT I love it. I have plenty of old freinds up there and great wheat growing. I have my heart set on Nevada. No one we know in Norther Nevada. Souther Nevada I have most my family. Fun new challanges. The CHANCE TO MINE! Grain growing is almost impossible. We started chatting about this today. We are both in our primes of life. 28 and 25. Debt free and with great investments. Maybe it because we are young. I do not know. Just a REAL change seems to be what we need. We have been trying to have a child. She thinks she may be preg AGIAIN (like every month for the past 4 years). I hope. I bet that is the change we need. Please do not get me wrong. I work a 60+ hour a week job. Just when you are paid 1200 a week and earn 2800 a week in paid for rentals. It gets kinda boring. I work a job to have something that is not in my control. I also hate my job. They have a truck to drive. I love driving a truck. Now, please do not get me wrong. I know we are very lucky. Many would love to have this problem. I know 6 years ago when we went chapter 11 and lived in a motel for 25 bucks a night we never seen this comming. We really do not want to sell it all. I mean it makes great money. Just want to have the right amount to buy a new HOME STEAD set up the way we want. If any of you folks have any suggestions were is a great place other then what I listed please let us know. I like Texas, but man. The water and Hay issue. I guess I could make a living hauling hay with my truck from Idaho and selling it. Just for you poor dems that feel us rich republicans do not pay any taxes. If I cash out my PAID for rental homes NOT ANY OF THE OTHER PLACES. I get to pay $648,000 in capitol gains taxes. :bash: Not to bad from 6 years ago were we were both working at labor ready just to pay for food and the 25 buck a night hotel room. I still do not know were a wel fair office is. :walk: I also as a poor republican PAID IN OVER 50K to federal taxes. How much did you GET BACK! Writting that check made me mad as hell. Listening to the feller next door that has 7 kids and is not now working and doing the church chase for food that is getting 3500 back. He earns 30k and gets money back? He gets a STATE paid for home that he gets to claim on. I mean dang. Were dose it stop folks? We are promoting LOOSERS! What would many of these folks do if THEY HAD TO GET BY? I am as happy sleepingin a tent. I have plans to cover that that take almost no money. I am sure most of you have the same. I like Northern Nevada. I WILL be buying property there very soon. I may not sell out right away, but I like it ALOT!
