  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I felt compelled to share this -- twice we almost bought this home, but both times decided against it. But we're very familiar with it. It's bank owned (a foreclosure) that's set empty for almost 4 years. The bank has done a great job of maintaining it. It's a large home, about 2300 sq feet...
  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I'm finishing up repairs in 5 rooms of my house caused by an ongoing roof problem that was hidden until it all fell apart, literally! Didn't think I could do it, but now that I am in the home stretch, I'm feeling cocky/empowered? I am selling a part interest in property I own with my siblings...
  3. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I am looking at a new property with about 40 acres and an older farmhouse. It has two water sources and several outbuildings. The house is about 100 years old and I have had houses that age before. However, I'd really like the expertise of this forum to help me see things I might otherwise miss...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just looking for some sympathetic souls out there that feel my frustrations. I recently made a budget for monthly purchases for food stuffs and a ongoing fund for land. I live in the city but my dream is for quiet, safe land out in the bush where I can have a cottage off grid for fun and hunting...

  8. Financial Forum
    It's taken about four years of careful planning but earlier this year I became 100% debt free. No mortgage, no car loans, no nothing! And while I was paying off my debts I was also able to continue contributing to my 401k (mostly because my company matches at 6% of my salary) and saved a nice...
  9. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Hi All Been prepping for a couple years now, concerned for half a decade. I have some resources (money) but not a ton. Live in the suburbs, and have done about as much as I am going to in my current 0.2 acre home. I like it here, and both the wife and I have good jobs. Work too much and not...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I hope this is the right forum for this thread. I came across this company, Revolutionary Realty It is for the Northern Idaho region. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and looking to buy property like this when I get home to homestead on, not to escape to. I have to stay in the St. Louis...
  11. General Discussion
    I have been searching to find out the meaning of the phrase"Grantor agrees to keep the property in good repair and shall not commit waste or permit impairment or deterioration of the property" This is contained in a security deed. Would that include someone who has been piling household...
