My recommendation to buying any land in west Texas (including the Panhandle) is to make sure it is in a county that has some people and a tax base. Texas property taxes are set by county taxing authorities with only recommendations from Austin. Taxes are high but without a tax base like a city or large town in the county where you plan to buy, your property taxes can be outrageous.

That was an honest appraisal Mr. Penny.
I am looking at the Dell City area myself, but I already have a pretty good idea of what I'll find there, mostly dry arid land with a few large irrigated farms in the area around town, but I am retired now and I want a place that is secluded and mostly quiet where I can build myself a small house and commune with nature, plus I have several cats that would like to roam a little, so I'll just have to set up some bolt holes and hideouts for them before I begin building for myself.

I really liked the piece about Sierra Blanca as a guy is really pushing some fairly high priced building lots in town, but with no restrictions of any kind, yet I found acre lots @ Dell City for 5-7% of what he was asking, and the Dell City area is much nicer overall, and its close to NM where I plan on spending some time, from time to time.

That was a pretty comprehensive article and I can attest to most of what you said as I use to drive across TX in the late 70's and early 60's and was a locksmith in FT Worth for over 20 years, until I retired in '07' and moved to MS.

Now, if somebody wants water in their life, move to the MS Delta. It took me 4 years to get use to the 95% humidity mornings and the 45-60% humidity afternoons and evenings most every long summer, and now I'm planning on going the the exact opposite direction, weather wise, with daily winds up to and over 10 miles an hour and dry arid conditions.

I'm surprised there is so much interest in barren desert lots east of El Paso when Timberon NM is so much prettier.

Isn't there where they had all those fires this past summer? Living in timberland might be nice for a while but when those forest fire's do occur they barely ever leave anything standing in their wrath.
As oppose to the barren desert, you all ready have the heat,just add in some nice desert landscaping, you might want to throw in a few palm trees and a swimming pool for the heck of it be creative ,innovate your own little oasis
