just checking the realestate in this area, raw land, with no built road access yet and no services , treed 7 acres not enough trees to probably pay to have it logged, on the banks of the river that has been washing it away the last few years over 91000 an acre, just across the road from me, piece beside it sold last week, nearly the same price, sure going to hate to see my tax bill next year.

Mornin' toolman!

Just wondering... are you still planning to check out that place you were interested in, a couple of months ago?

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean.. it ain't easy to leave something like that..I had the house of my dreams ( beautiful old farmhouse - nicely restored, a great workshop, 11 acres of land ) but I had to leave because the wife turned out to be a nightmare..
I really hope for you guys that you will find the ideal place..I know it won't be easy.. I mean, you know exactly what you want.
I think if it's meant to be, you'll find what you're looking for. Wishing you the best of luck with your search!

what is it about your area that makes land so expensive? I was under the impression your area was largely undeveloped.......gfp

toolman    Posted 02-09-2005 at 21:56:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
it is or was largely underdeveloped, but the ski hill changed hands a few years back and a bunch of developement took place and now it is supposed to be a world class resort, and a big golf course developement is also planned near me , im sorta in between.figured id be able to spend my life here ,but don,t think so now,and they say because of the 2010 oymplics that land in all of b.c will be going up at certain rates , already a big demand from the calgarns wantin a place in the mountains.lots of oil money in calgary

Hey toolman you said:

I thought the loggers paid you? I would seriously consider buying land ceap to have it logged. The logging money can pay for (or come close to) paying for the land.

Are you saying that doesn't work that way up north?

Just curious.

pay to have it logged , probably should of said not worth logging, no value in the timber that is on there or very little.figure of speech /maybe only up here ?

toolman    Posted 02-09-2005 at 21:30:47       [Reply]  [No Email]
well what i meant after after it,s logged it has to be stumped cleaned up etc,deals like this it usually cheaper just to give the logger the logs if he stumps and cleans as he goes, may even be able to get him to some other work like leveling a build site or something. i just watched them do the place next to this one and he never got two logging truck loads off the place, seems a shame to log it for that.
