I own2 lots in the shadow ridge estates and have recently been contacted by 'state acquisition corp.' out of Florida. They sent a letter stating the sale price of my land at $83,233. They also said I should send a check for $1450 to cover the sale and transfer fees. Interesting, since most realtors work on a commission after the sale. I have been in contact with the county clerk in ElPaso and a realtor there who assure me the land I own is worth about $10. I believe these people are just out to take advantage of the elderly. People beware!

Last time I checked the Google maps for zip code 79938, the new housing construction was coming close to the Clint ISD boundary (around Flager Road). Before long it and the city of El Paso will be spreading into the area south of Montana Vista (the city probably won't annex Montana Vista unless the people there want it, and maybe not for a while after that on account of the cost of providing services to that area). Starting at about a mile south of Greg Road the subdivisions the Horizon Corporation platted but never built start, on either side of Ascencion Road. I figure that area may be developed piecemeal with new houses going up here and there surrounded by vacant lots as home builders get access to the land. The vacant lots will get access to water and sewer lines and other utilities and their value will go up. People who own land in that area may come out ahead after all if they hang on to it for a while. But if it's near Hueco Tanks, it will be a long time before the city reaches them.

I just received a past due tax notice on #30 & 31 (20000 sq ft), Shadow Ridge Estates, from Delgado et al LLP, attorneys for El Paso. It is addressed to my father, who died 8 yrs ago & this is the 1st notice I recall getting. Anyone know anything about this? Advice?

well, were you aware of the property? Was it transferred to one of the heirs from your father's estate?

If the heirs were unaware of the property, no one was paying taxes on it all this time, and they are probably due. The Delgado Linebarger firm does all the City's tax collection work.

You probably need advice from an attorney.

Back in 1975 I was sold a square foot of land in Shadow Ridge Estates for $1.00 by a company called Poco Associates. They were advertising these plots as Ranchitos.
They sent me the Deed. This square foot was in Block 7, lot 5. The deed said that if it was ever sold I would be compensated. Is there anyone else who bought one of these deeds or knows if this land has ever been sold?

That's a pretty small plot! What can you fit in it? A bowl?
