Based on the cost of existing homes on a few acres and lack of inventory we are considering just buying land and installing a manufactured home there when we move.

Does anyone have any experience with doing this stuff in this area? Im curious of the cost of having a well dug and a septic installed. As well as getting the utilities hooked up. I know this stuff can vary quite a bit, especially the well, depending on the area. Just looking for a ballpark figure. Thanks!.

Default Well and utilities

it is really going to vary depending on where you get the land. But, land in areas with good wells and easy access to utilities tend to reflect that in the price of the land. Well is going to depend on how far they have to drill to hit the water. I have seen this as low as $5,000 and as high as $15,000 (total for everything). Septic costs have less variation.

Quality of water is an issue as well.

A realtor can help you with all of this.

You're probably looking at $8K-$10K for a well unless they have to drill very deep. Septic is probably $6K-$8K. Electric can be pricey if there is no transformer nearby. APS makes you pay to extend their lines. If you are just bringing electric from the transformer, then it's about $10/ft.

A Practical Guide to Drilling a well in Arizona. Depth of well is one consideration of cost, but so is the cost of the casing...which must go to bedrock. 500-600' of 6" steel well casing could get kind of pricey....hope for shallow bedrock! Your best bet is to visit an active driller in the area.

This well registry provides good data on AZ wells, it's just a little difficult to navigate.

Thanks a lot for the info guys. Much appreciated. Seems I can get in for about 200k all in. Which seems like the way to go if I can actually find nice land thats not on a HOA AND allows manufactured homes. Thats the needle in a haystack.

There are a handful on the north side of Prescott Valley for $40K-$50K. There's good water there.

Hey anyone. I have an offer on a house in Prescott Valley that has a pump drilled at 405 ft in 1996. The seller's disclosure says it is producing at 3 gallons per minute but is only showing 1/2 gallon per minute which owner is now saying is normal. Is there a place I can check to see if this should be a show-stopper or not? 1/2 gallon per minute with a 1000 + 2500 gallon storage tanks might be okay as long as the pumping continues but worried that the disclosure is so different than what the inspector observed. Also, what are options? I hear wells are hit and miss in that area so drilling another expensive well may not even be an option.

Not sure on wells in this area, but I've heard could go as high as $30k. Last septic I had installed was $15k, including leach lines for a 3BR home.

I'm in Cornville, but still Yavapai County. New build next door spent $30k on the septic (This year). House down the street spent the same on a replacement system.
