Doomsteads of the Rich and Famous
« on: April 24, 2013, 07:02:55 AM »
I don't normally spend time hunting for off-grid properties, but I ran across this place and found myself feeling sorry for whomever is selling it...wondered if they died or got too old and feeble to hack it in the boonies.

The price is out of my range, and too remote for most people who work a job, but damn, it's one fine doomstead.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

That place is a beautiful location and all done already, but at 1.7M$, probably take 1.5, is only for the discerning man of means.

Last night I spent an hour looking at doomstead real estate with one of my daughters' BF who is interested in this stuff.  It's always surprising to me(and I'm not sure why) when I see how real estate entrepreneur types try to catch a wave of buyer sentiment. Obviously, lots of people are doomsteading these days...more than are writing about it by a large margin, I would guess.

I saw a few examples of what I would call "doomer planned communities". I am leery of this concept...mainly because I think the meme there is "buy low sell high" and the properties being developed are not primo land.

Of the more viable properties we looked at this one caught my eye:

Not trying to start a marketing campaign for the realtors, but it was strikingly beautiful. And fairly cheap.
