A solution for Deming Ranchettes owners
It pays to make friends or learn how to cooperate. This is why "rich" people get ahead. They learn how to pool their resources so that everyone benefits. So, what is to stop landowners from doing the same thing?
This idea is not for investors, but for people who genuinely want to live in Deming Ranchettes: Basically,
create groups of landowners and have everyone who is interested added to their neighbor's land title.
For example - I have one acre. If you have an adjacent acre, then I will add you to my title and vice versa. Then we are both the land owners of our 2 acres and can live on different parts of "our" property. We can have our shared septic system. Any basic repairs/improvements are shared by all land owners or by the land trust.
Everything should be written out in advance and discussed before owners agree. Everyone agrees with any limitations beforehand, so as to avoid lawsuits. Brainstorm all options ahead of time and get someone to play devil's advocate and bring up all future possibilities or challenges.
In the future, if necessary, the property can be offered for sale to the other landowner first (at a previously agreed price), or to a pre-approved list of neighbors that want to cooperate in this way and have shared interests or lifestyles. Create a legally binding agreement between neighbors.
Like I said, rich people understand that you have to sacrifice a little to get what you want. They do not perceive this as selling out, but just doing business as usual. They are not trapped in survival mode or get emotional about it like others do. That is why they always win or get ahead. Learn to cooperate, keep your promises, maintain your credibility.
By the way, I am talking from personal experience, being the underdog, and repeatedly getting screwed. I have watched my rich family members for years play the investment game and Wall Street, some not so ethically. And they always win... GOOD LUCK TO YOU
