The next step to making this dream yours is very easy.
- Pay the $299 doc fee (completely refundable) to hold the property. We will contact you, usually within a few minutes, but always by the next day.
- Once we have the property held for you, we will draw up a simple contract, at that time we can discuss the remainder of the payment if paying cash, or the downpayment if financing.
- We will forward the cash purchase agreement to you to electronically sign, or the land contract and promissory note (if setting up financing). Either can be filled out electronically.
- Once the property is paid in full, we file the deed with the county. Normally this takes a couple of days. Once we have the deed recorded, we will send you a copy via US Mail and the property is yours to enjoy!
This lot was burned during the Spring 2018 fire. However, the trees and shrubs are starting to come back and as they grow, so will your investment. Now is literally the best time to get in and watch the surrounding forest take off again.
This is a great mountain lot in one of the most desirable subdivisions of southern Colorado, Forbes Park. This area is full of deer and elk, and other wildlife.
You are only a few miles away from the Pike-San Isabel National Forest. Also, you are only about 30 minutes away from Fort Garland.
This would make a great spot for a weekend getaway cabin. This is a beautiful mountain area and is what a typical “Rocky Mountain” view is like. You can see the Sangre de Cristo mountains here, including Blanca peak. This IS mountain living!
