San Luis Valley Ranches Unit 20 Lots:  Unit 20 Lots all fit the following description: They are  330’x660’ in size, flat with native grasses and shrubs. They have good access on County  maintained roads, have great, 360 degree views and are at about 7,600’ elevation. There is no power or water and residents use solar power, propane, and wells. Residents also use septic systems for waste disposal. Well permits limited to “inside domestic use only “are available. From these SLVR parcels, it is about 16 miles to Alamosa and 6 miles to Blanca. Most residents have a post office box in Blanca. Buyers can use the property for camping, but it is not allowed to move on the property until it is paid in full.  Please check with us before starting a drive way or other improvements. 
The SLVR Area has covenants, but there is no Association or group to enforce the covenants.  The area was platted and surveyed in the late 1960's and most of the SLVR lots were sold by the early 1980's.  There are an estimated 200 dwellings in the SLVR Area, ranging from nice homes to ramshackle homesteads.  Costilla County recently has passed an ordinance requiring landowners to show proof of trash service.  There are perhaps 30 eyesores in the SLVR Area, which have been grandfathered (being ignored).  But the mechanism is now in place, that upon complaints by one or more nearby residents, a County Inspector will view the violation (storing junk and old cars on the property) and issue a cease or desist order: "Clean it up or the County will get it done "  The County enforces their Land Use Code now and has a strict system of permitting that is required prior to building.  First and Foremost, you need a Septic System and proof of Water.

Food for Thought-- Some other land sellers offer parcels of land for $99 per month for 10 years.  The actual cost of the land ends up being thousands of dollars more than the original price and the parcels themselves are in areas that we don't even deal with because of their inferior location, lack of roads or any type of infrastructure, and distances from neighboring towns.  Our parcels, if inferior in some regard, will state their condition, the photos will be accurate and from the parcel and our prices will be in the range $3,000.  It just bears thinking about.......
