Owner Financing

Owner Financing

The advantage of owner financing forthe seller and buyer: As longtime agents for a land development company Montana Land Buyer Realty has experienced both the seller and buyer sides of selling and purchasing vacant land. Typically vacant land does not have the equity that a bank needs to finace a transaction. If a seller is willing to finace their property and a buyer can prove a good credit history there might be advantages for both parties to reach a mutual goal.

Buying Land with a Mindful Vision

Buying Land with a Mindful Vision

If you are inspired to heal Planet Earth, there is always a parcel of vacant land that can be developed with gardens, forest and animal habitat. There is no better way to be an ecologist than to develop a supressed portion of land and heal it! There seems to be a movement with some people, the urge to have a small farm, or mountain homestead, to get back with nature and in so doing, revive the intuitive self intelligence that connects us to Planet Earth. There are many people practicing "Permaculture" methods that might relate to a specific agricultural and ecological region. For instanace, Papya doesn't grow in Paradise Valley Montana (unless you have a year round Forest Graden Greenhouse!). There are parcels of land that needs owner's! They may be rocky, with Glacier silt and barren of trees, the only vegation being tufts of grass, sage, wild native plants, waiting to be cultivated. It is amazing what you can accomplish over a period of time to make your homestead a self reliant domain! Some of the most fasinating ways of turning a barren land into a paradise of delights is to practice Permaculture techniques for growing food, raising animals and live stock and generally improving the envoirnment. The CD Inhababit is a current film that really captures the spirit of living off the land and shows how we can assist in various ways to restore what has been agriculturally destroyed or left as barren land due to over grazing or neglect.
