    Buying land in west Texas - good idea?

    Theres some pretty cheap land land available in west Texas right now. I could prolly get 25 acres for about 1,000 bucks. Its pretty much just dessert and has no water or electricity hookup. Any potential value here?

    I was thinking about just buying the land and holding on to it for a few years actually... with the rate of US population expantion, it won't take long before it's worth alot more..

    Yup thats what Im thinking. I cant envision any possible scenario where the land would actually go down in value and most likely it will go up. Plus, although the land might be in the middle of nowhere right now, Texas is growing like crazy. The further the suburban sprawl creeps the closer the land will be to civilization.

    If its not worth much now, it probably won't be worth much in the future. Things to think about, how far is it from civilization? Are there roads? Obviously no running water or electricity. Nobody lives in the desert for a reason, and to think that would change and you may make some money off of it, I kinda doubt it.

    Where exactly in Texas? If it's close to the Mexican border maybe you can start your own Security company with its base right there, helping to stop illegal aliens.

    Buy the land and forget about it for 25 years. Or look for a city thats growing rapidly, buy land outside of the city and wait until a building company contacts you.

    land like the kind you suggested is normally purchased by nature people - guys who like to hunt, go ATVing, hiking, fishing, camping, etc. There isn't much else of a reason to own land like that.

    That being said, electricity can be brought to the land - so can plumbing, water, etc.

    Is the land dry abandoned wasteland or would it be even somewhat desirable to live on?

    I was thinking about the population increase and thought about buying some land myself. It doesn't even matter if you don't have the money to install plumbing, etc. Hold it until the time is right - you'll pay taxes, but it may only be a couple of bucks a year on a 1000 dollars investment. If there comes a time to sell, whoever is interested in purchasing it for development will put in all the electricity, etc. On the other hand, if no one buys it, you have 25 acres of dessert in texas. big deal.

    You cant buy 25 acres for a grand. Maybe 1k per acre.

    Learn as much as you can of where the city limits will be expanding before you buy anything.

    My grandparents bought some land outside of the city 30 years ago, and it still hasn't got the right zoning, or got sewers, yet. It had electricity when they bought it though. Another farm they were looking at buying back then though sold 2 years ago for 50 million, so It can be pretty lucritive.

    looks okay, but you live in MAINE! How in the blue monkey urine are you going to buy property if you live in Maine? You gotta see the property first - do a walk through, etc. What if you just ebay the property and then 20 years later you go to sell and someone is like, "Oh, turns out that this was an indian burial ground 500 years ago and now if you build on it, the dead indians will attack you!"

    Always see the property in question before buying - never NEVER purchase a house or land sight unseen. yeah, yeah, they have a picture - but thats the keyword - ONE picture. 5.1 acres and they only include one photograph? I get that they think its all wasteland so no need to post dozens of pictures of flat land, but still.

    is there stuff near the land? stores, entertainment, restaurants, civilization, homes, condos, hotels, etc. Does ANYONE live near that stretch of highway? How are you gonna know unless you actually visit the land? Now its not worth flying all the way to Texas on a 1000 dollar investment (taxi, flight, food, hotel, taxi, rental car, taxi, flight, taxi will all cost more than the investment) just to roam around, but if I were you, I'd prospect someone in Texas to go survey the location - take pictures, etc. and you'll paypal them 100 bucks. You might see that there isn't even a Walmart for 100 miles and then the question becomes, "who in the f*ck would want to live out here?"

    yeah, west texas, or arizona if you can find land cheap. These places are starting to be popular, especially with retirees.

    That wont go any cheaper than 25k. You really acnt buy land for under 1k/acre. If you do find it cheaper it will be in 1000 acre blocks.

    meh. The plane ticket down there would prolly cost more than the land itself. Im pretty sure I could buy it sight unseen...

    Now all we have to do is get them to sign up...
    Oh, I think I can convince them...

    West Texas is larger than your entire state. Not a good investment unless you plan on dropping at least $20,000 in to it. Even then, if it is not good for hunting or running cattle, you will break even at best.

    thats a very long term investment, you might as well put money into stocks (ticker GS (goldman sachs)) that will earn you more money IMO..or into a trust

    but if you really want land then i guess you could do that..even though it will take a while to start turning profit...and no water or electricity hook ups? who lives there?

    First of all, I think you're stretching it on the price. Anywho, the land is useless unless you're willing to farm on it. Think about it, its for sale for a reason. Plus, as stated before its not worth much now and won't go up in value in you're lifetime (possibly your grandchildrens'). Also consider the taxes you'll have to pay yearly for that amount of land. You'll loose alot of money before you see any. Just sayin.
    About my rep: I was the christian in an atheist post :D

    100% rep and neg return.

    OVT Training FTW!

    San Antonio. My sister lived in Rio Grade City for a while right out of med school. It's a different world down there.

    I don't think you have quite grasped what you are most likely getting into. There are counties in West Texas that are larger than some states. In some of those counties, there might be one road running through it and less than 5,000 people in the entire county. The land is desolate, hard, flat, etc. A lot of it is not even good for cattle it's so bad. Land taxes in Texas are high, so you would probably pay more in taxes than you could ever make off of it.
