They actually asked us if we'd carry the loan.
NO!


Did they try Wells Fargo? I had a similar problem when I bought this
place (7 acres). Lots of lenders were anxious to lend me money, until
they found out how much land I wanted to buy.

Aw, Terri. I hate dissappointments like that. I think you probably deserve
to be in a pissy mood. This too shall pass.

Thanks, Perry.
I know it will, but damn, now I have to cool my jets and unpack
a bunch of stuff to make the house look lived in.
This has also been a good experience for the dogs, though.
New routines, habits and the comings and goings of people
in my remote rural home, has been a real plus for them.
They've adjusted to it like real troopers.

You know? I have no idea what lending organization they
tried, both times.
You would think, as the buyer is a real estate agent,
that she would know about Wells Fargo and other agencies
that are friendly to over 5 acres of land.
I half want to call her up and mention it to her, but
I'm already paying "someone" 3% to do their job and I'd
like to think that "someone" would do the job they're being
paid for.
(Yeah, that's 3% not 6%, I got a great deal at the time.)
Or, not.

What IS it with this 5 acre limit thingiemajiggie, anyway?
I was always under the impression that more land is GOOD, not bad.

Thanks for the tip and for letting me vent.

Harder to sell. I learned that the hard way.

Really? People have some sort of mental block against parcels larger
than 5 acres?

Maybe it is because they feel that the extra acerage is wasted?? Around
here, the most restrictive residential zoning (RC) means 0.20
houses/acre, so 5 is the minimum you need to put up a house. Unless you
have 10, in which case you could subdivide the lot at some point, the
extra acerage is "useless".

Heck, we get people asking us all the time if we're going to have our
property rezoned (we have 5 acres) and sell off the other parcels -
that's exactly the reason I wanted a large lot, so I could have other
people living so close to me that I can reach out and poke them.
