Introduction

Without visiting in person before making an offer, we discovered the listing for this little gem on the back road to ABQ from Chama.

Criteria met: ≤$1000/acre, Borders National Forest, No HOA or Deed Restrictions.  Well, let’s call the realtor and talk about it.  Really?  That’s all you want for it?  Well, winter is coming and we won’t be able to make it out to visit the property so let’s hold off.  Maybe not, maybe we can mitigate our risk by giving a lower offer.  If he really is ready to sell now he will understand that we aren’t going to pay the full asking price without seeing it.  Success!!  Property purchased, hopefully this doesn’t backfire on us in a bad bad way.

Wow, just wow our expectations are exceeded.  Several miles up an unmaintained  road, bordered on one side by national forest and the property on the other three sides are owned by someone that just comes up for a few days each summer, and he was really a nice guy.  I think this will work, let’s start planning to get the hell out of Florida!!

    1. Yah, the road is definitely an adventure in itself! I LOVE Subarus (miss mine so much), but we will need a more high-clearance vehicle for the three mud bogs on the way. The 79 F150 is on the way to the shop today… Fingers crossed we can get it back to decent condition without too much expense- It’s a real mountain-climber!!
