Owning Land
    #6631702 - 03/03/07 05:00 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

All right, one of main ambitions is to own some land. It doesn't have to be a lot of land, but I would love to own some land. Its gotta be wooded, perhaps hilly, upon which I can have a custom-built house.

So who else is interested in owning land? Who here does own land? Does anyone know how much one would expect to pay as far as taxes and fees are concerned? I can search a website and find land and a price, but I'm wondering about the taxes, which I haven't found anything about by searching.

I realize that it will lie dependant upon the state in particular, how much land you own, and etc. This land would be out in the country, not within city limits.

Anyone? :cool:

It is completely dependent upon location (like a lot of other things).

I would assume that if you bought several acres of land, out in the middle of nowhere the taxes would be very low.

Of all places to look, check ebay. I found a listing for 5.12 acres in western Texas, the dexription said taxes were less than $50, and it looks like it'll go for under $2K.

I would worry more about the actual price of the land rather than the taxes. Property taxes tend to lower the price of land, so the two tend to even each other out. At least, that's my understanding of it.

i own land but the land i own is protected nature by laws and cannot be build anything on, not that i would have if i wanted but im not allowed to build a hut even on over 80% of the land i own because of extremly rare plants that only lives there. The remaining 20% is mostly rocks which cannot be used for anything useful. But i love my land, its a beatuful piece of arctic nature and i wouldnt want to change it for anything or any kind of money,

I found out last week that about a thousand reindeers had a couple of days stop there on their journey north. its a popular stop for many animals , both domestic and wild ones.

Those taxes seem like they wouldn't be bad for that much land. I've discovered that they are just called property taxes so that should make it easier to find information. I really wouldn't need more than a few acres, but a lot of wooded area would be excellent so I could have enough dead trees to chop up as firewood. :thumbup:

Probably will move back to Wisconsin or something and get land there. :shrug:

dead trees dont make for good fire wood, they do make good lumber if they're early
in the decay process, generaly out in the styx firewood is cheap and plentiful, I
pay about $50 a truck load so I dont have to kill off my trees

although the pines must die!

Forest land should be pretty cheap.  The most expensive properties tend to be in urban centers.  Good luck! :thumbup:

Well, live trees don't make good fire wood, so I'm wondering where you get your fire wood. :grin:

usualy one of the things considered in pricing land with trees is the value of the trees for harvesting as lumber or pulp

Well it'll be a few years yet, unfortunately. I am a little bit in debt, which should change soon enough, and then I'd like to start saving and investing. I don't know too much about it all yet but I know that I want to own land, build a house to my own specifications, and possibly retire early.

well actualy, with the new out door wood burners wet green wood is perfect. fence line trees like boxelder and "scrub trees" popel and birch burn very well. as to taxes in WI it is one of the highest taxed states. 3 acers out in the middle of nowhere with no trees, just a house and a shed 5500 ish in taxes. wooded land gets taxed as recreational ground. putting wooded land in to dnr programs is usualy the only chance you have to get out of some nasty taxes up there.

I have been there and back, although it was somthing i had to do i dont recomend it for others, at least not with my travel agent.

You can also buy bare land, plant mixed species of hardwood/conifer. Then log it or sell of some of the timber to pay your taxes, 10 15 years or longer down the line.

but there is SOOO much to research if youre trying to plant a forest. especially hardwoods. people get whole bachelors degrees on that.

deer, weeds, nutes, pests, pesticides, diseases, burning, etc...it goes on and on.

you might wanna look at reclaiming old farmland. preferably soy-bean fields which have been abandoned. dont get ranched land, that stuff is useless.

Another possibility, now that you mention farm land, is getting some land in Iowa. Perhaps when my grandparents stop farming I could take over? It isn't enough to live off of but I'm sure it would be enough to pay taxes. That would be sweet as hell, pack up a bowl at 4 in the morning and head on out in the tractor. :cool:
