Tomcat, my personal opinion is be sure you actually see the property and have it inspected by a professional BEFORE you buy! Dirt roads in NM can mean rivers when it rains and ugh! the mess it causes! They can wash out too. Does it have electric access? If not, run! It costs more than you can even imagine to bring it to you. Ask the electric company how much and you just might scream! Maybe you are a hardy soul and don't need it, but to turn it over, most people want electricity. Does it have good water? So many questions. I'd take it with a grain of salt any realtor who said it was "hot property". If I had a dime for every time I have heard that one, I'd be a billionaire. Seriously really investigate it. It might turn out to be to your advantage, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Tomcat, Did you buy one of the ranchettes. What is the unit, block and lot numbers. I know most of them. The closer you get to the Florida mountains the more washes there are. Any questions just get back with me and maybe I can help.

ucalljoe, did you build on the ranchette lot? I live in maryland and own 3 lots but heard you now need 4, one-half acre lots or 2 acres before you can drill a well........I have thought about moving out there but with just owning an acre and a half it doesn't seem like an option now........

Yes the county pass ordinance 37 stating you need to have 2 acres for a septic and well. There is a new election coming on Tues we are trying to run these commisioners out. The state code is 3/4 of an acre to put a well and septic on a piece of property. Some one brought up to me about a leechless
tank. This should solve problems with the county. A major ranchette owner from FL will have them in court to get the standards closer to state standards. I haven't built yet but am hanging onto my property. Do you know who owns the properties next to yours? I will be back in town Tues if you need to find the names of the owners next to you. What is your unit, block and lot numbers? I can stop at the county office and get you that info if you would like.

Joe

Crackerjack,

Yes some of the dirt roads do get washed out from time to time. But if you build on your property the county will com out and improve or grade the roads to your property. Yes you have to be careful not to buy an arroyo. But a lot of these ranchettes are great pieces of land with great views of the mountains. Be careful buying too close to the Floridas. The washes get deeper the closer you get. The area is hot. New subdivisions are being built close to town especially by the new schools.

Joe

Joe, thanks for the offer to check on the owners around my lots.......howver, I've contacted those owners but have not gotten a response yet.......I'm in unit 63 and there's no developement there as far as I know........I talked to the power company and it would cost around $4000 to get electricity to my lots, which is a lot but not really that that bad considering how undeveloped the area is.........I'll hold onto the property for now and maybe take a ride out there next summer.........let me know if anything changes regarding the well issue, will you? thanks, Rick
