Going to upstate NY and look at 2 places for the second time. One is a cute house on 24 acres with a stream. Need to find the stream today.
The other is 46 acres with an older trailer on it. Also has a 5 acre pond.
If only the cute house was on the 46 acres. We'll make the choice today and start bidding. Will be a long interesting day.
Time to get the little lady up and hit the road.
Enjoy your day everyone.

Good luck, Randy. What town are you talking?
Given that info, I would go with the smaller acreage with the better house.

What part of New York are you talking about?

If you can get by with 24 acres I would go with the house, just becuase we're in a mobile home and mobiles only deppreciate. A real house appreciates. They're like cars these mobiles, the minute you drive them off the lot they start to go down in value. A solid house is a better investment. JMO.

Mobile homes, they only deprecicate if you are thinking of selling it. I have a young friend who purchased a new doulble wide to move on their acerage. The property tax folks will not depreciate it! After five years they still have it valued at the brand new buying price.

However, I do agree the house is a better buy for durability. If the land is a much better deal though, living in the trailer for a while then building a home could be the best deal.

Hope you make the right choice and the one that makes life happiest for you.
