Shopping…

We did a bunch of shopping from Florida and had a few good places picked out in the Chama area that we wanted to look at.  Unfortunately, you just never know what your gonna get from an online ad.  We looked at a few places one piece of property that was pretty flat, had decent irrigation, about 20 acres but it just didn’t suit our fancy.  It was open view all around and there were houses on all sides of the border, so even though it was 20 acres there was no privacy.  We also looked at a  beautiful piece of land that was 5 acres but it was a total cereal bowl—all steep declines leading to a huge open bowl area in the bottom.  Well where do you live in this scenario—either on the side of a steep incline or in a flood zone.  We really wanted to pull the trigger on that piece of property, thankfully we had a close family member there to talk some sense into us, THANKS TERRY!!.  As frustrated as we were that nothing was working out for us, passing on this piece of property was the smartest decision we had made to this point and taught us a valuable lesson.  This is the rest of our lives we are talking about, let’s not be hasty!!  Time to go back to Florida.  Lucky for us we decided to take the back roads back to the airport and just happened to see a bunch of signs for a realtor that we had not talked to yet.

Beautiful view from 5 acres in Chama, but it’s all downhill…
