So we have lived ( wife and me ) in a 1300 sf ranch on a half acre for 35 yrs ..

Now we are looking for a 2000 sf ranch or two story on a bigger lot ..

Seems like we are doing the opposite of wait people our age do .

Im sick of neighbors :)

Id love to find a 2000 st ranch on a 25 acre lot in the Fingerlakes area ..

I know we are going to have to pay up and I’m fine with that..

We have no kids so I figure we may as well blow some cash instead of leaving it to someone :)

This market is stupid right now

25 Acres is a nice size to retire to !   I would hesitate with the two story though and even stay away from a Ranch with a basement . Everything on one level is planning for when stairs are a challenge ! Just my old guy ( which I am)  opinion !

Maybe a single wide with a roll up ramp?

Trouble is finding something , really don’t want to build . We saved a nice amount and I’d rather spend it than leave it :)

F It! Go big! Buy a Finger Lakes vineyard! Shoot monster bucks and drink copious amounts of red wine!

Be sure you’re physically able to take care of the property .believe it or not ,work adds up quick with 25 acres and a house on it .

Yea I am now but if I croak … well she could sell it

I guess a couple acres would be ok in a nice area ..

Then I could buy some hunting land with cabin

After seeing the price of the biz house this House on 81 ac seems like a deal.    I'm always looking myself but never have enough money for a dream property like this one.
