Today we went looking at land again since our first choice in Corsicana didn't work out. The first few we visited in Grandview ended up being horrible, one had a big propane tank right next door, a huge electrical line overhead right through the middle, and railroad tracks at the back. The other one had a pipeline running right through the middle of it. I was getting discouraged again.
Then we drove up north to visit a site north of Azle that I found that was unlisted. It is perfect!! It has tons of thick trees to block out the views of the neighbors, a few big open spaces for the horses, a big dry creek at the back at the bottom of a big cliff/drop off. The land behind is 100 acres untouched except for the owner's small barn and horse,s so lots of deer go through there. You could even see the tracks where the deer come up from the creek.
The owner was actually there cutting the grass and took us walking around the land. He and his wife are very nice, and they aren't planning to use a Realtor at all, which I know will save some money but I have to check and make sure we don't need one for all the contracts. The wife said the bank should take care of the contracts and such so I will call them on Monday to find out.
I am very excited!! This land is closer than the one in Corsicana for me, only an hour from work and 30-45 minutes from my family. The only hold up is that it is 1 hour 40 minutes from downtown Dallas where Daniel currently works, but he's going to look and see if there's a station closer to Fort Worth that he could request.
So fingers are officially crossed! I'm ready to get going on designing the plans!!
