          I get jealous of people looking at large patches of land. Having land in large chunks is very cool. While you might not like Ted Turner I do love the land that he owns and how he loves on it.

              Yeah, but what would be nicer is if we got rid of property tax - which we should here in America as we don't live under a King here anymore. Property taxes are for servants not citizens. Sometimes I wonder how people like Loretta Lynn can even pay the taxes on the huge swaths of land they own - she owns 6000 acres of land just around her house. I would be happy with a couple thousand acres

                Make sure if you decide to buy that you are also getting mineral rights to the land too Chris. I've done a little research on buying land and believe it or not you have to watch some things like that. Good luck I hope you get what you are looking for.

                  Chained to my desk grinding out tax returns. At least I have this to look at:

                          Man that's a throw back from the 80s for sure.... The "Black Coral" model if I remember correctly. I knew a woman who had the ladies model (she was a diver). Are you going to have it refurbished or wear as is?

                            a trick we used in real estate -

                            used to buy & sell quite a bit, 1970s-90s. City of Richmond would jump on any sale transaction price as the new tax assessment and i mean immediately.

                            we'd write the contract up so that the price would be divided up so that, let's say the total price being paid was $100,000, contract would be written as $60,000 for real property involved (land, buildings, improvements thereon) and the balance of $40,000 for the personal property therein (furnance, kitchen fixtures, etc). For land, you could substitute, for the personal property, xxx for any & all timber, both standing and cut, on the property at the time of contract acceptance.

                            the city doesn't see a copy of the contract, but that way the recording atty could honesty record the real property transaction value was $60,000. Also the transaction deed recordation tax is based on what's recorded as the real property transfer value.

                            To assure the seller no tricks were being or going to be played on him/her, there'd be a clause that either part (real property or personal property) of this purchase/sale was contingent on the other part of this sale being consumated, ie no partial purchase. No explanation was offered the seller as the reason for writing the contract that way other than the buyer's accountant described it for his client's tax purposes.

                            FWIW
