    We just looked at property this weekend. Yet, since we are in the midst of winter, we really could not see the land lay-out of the 52 acres. So definitely go when weather allows (if you are dealing with snow and ice).

    The reason we walked away was because the buildings that were there, all needed to be torn down, except “maybe” one, which we could not get to. We all had to park at the road, with all walking about a 1/4 mile up the drive due to them not plowing it out.

    It was an off-grid property that sold veggies and the like, yet it was neglected, and our age, the amt of “stuff” that was everywhere, in some places hoarded, musty and moldy, so we left because it would be too much work for our youthful spirits with some aging concerns.

    Definitely, before purchasing, know the land, get someone knowledgable in knowing how to source whether it has water, etc.
