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.......

We forgot we owned this and hadn't offered it for sale in the last few years.  
Parcel is 330' facing Lamar Rd and is 660' deep, like most of the parcels in San Luis Valley Ranches. 
Seasonal Camping - Recreational property.  If you want to live in this area, please familiarize yourself with the County's Land Use Code regarding building regulations, septic systems, and obtaining a legal source of water. The land is only designed for one residence, and a well and septic system will be required for permanent living.  This adds greatly to the cost of living in this area, plus one must factor in the cost of solar or hooking up to power.
