Wife is retired , I’m almost there , no kids , home in the village on a 1/2 acre
Nice older ranch but very nice shape . Lived here 30 years..
I want to move either to a more modern newer ranch but with an acre or two or try and find land with a home , wooded , hunting land , like 40’acres etc
But I want to keep the style home a ranch.
I know prices are crazy now but we will be able to sell ours easy and get a good price.
My thinking is buy a modern ranch home in a nice neighborhood that has water , sewer , gas , cable etc but is on a big semi private lot .
That way if I croak my wife wouldn’t be stuck out in the boondocks alone and would be able to stay put.
Then I would buy a hunting camp with some land near us ( fingerlakes area )that she could just sell off if I die .
