Hi

I know this is a long shot but I am looking to buy some acreage on land contract in the kalamazoo, plainwell, allegan or otsego areas.
I would prefer land that has a well, slab, and septic tank. I would like to start a farm and get out of the rat race. Any leads I would appreciate

thanks in advance

I take it that you are looking for land that is tillable ready as apposed to being wooded?

Do you have a down payment? People usually want at least 20% down to cover the cost of the sale as well as the risk involved with doing land contracts. ie. legal cost of taking the property back if the buyer defaults.

Are you planning to build, put a trailer on the land (some areas do not permit trailers unless they are permanently attached to the foundation and has an Affidavit of a Fixture issued by the State of Michigan), or just farm it and live in another location?
