I got my land in tropical Naples, south Florida!!
After nearly 2 years of research and land hunting I finally own 5 acres in Naples, FL!
It’s been a long wait, but well worth it.. :)
I found this amazing deal back in March, it was a bank owned foreclosure so I knew it might take up to 6 months to close the deal, but the price was irresistible, only $14,000 for 5 acres!!! 2010 value according to Collier county tax records: $140,000!
It's an empty lot with a few bushes and a palm tree in the middle:
It used to be some kind of farm according to the real estate agent, but it's been abandoned for a few years.. the gravel road at the entrance is covered with grass and bushes:
Zoning is agricultural that means that I can set up a mobile home or trailer (I can also build a house of course), grow whatever I want, have a compost toilet, etc.. so I can do pretty much whatever I want..:)
Electricity and cable internet available, I have a few neighbors too so I'm not all alone in the big Cypress swamp..:)
I hope I can inspire a few fruity vegans and get some neighbors down the road! :)
I'm very excited and can't wait to get started!!! Planning to move (I live in Connecticut currently) by the end of the year latest, but hoping as soon as possible, around October would be great.
This is it for now my friends.. check back often if you would like to follow my journey!
