    It's still the wild west in some of those areas. There ain't no water either in some of those areas so you can't raise much. A plot of land that size, you are going to put out some major dime. You're talking places the stars, and rich have been buying up. Those days are gone when you could buy a big parcel of land for a few bucks an acre. Your best bet is to check with a realtor in those areas.

    Better make sure you own the mineral rights in addition to the land, otherwise natural gas companies will frack the shit out of your land, and you won't be able to stop them, or protect your water.

    -talk with the local government what is required to get a building permit. they WILL find you and make you get a permit. Go to the counter at the permits department and schedule a one on one talk.
    -unless you got cash talk with a local bank to see what they will loan money on
    -consider scraping an existing farm house just to get the water rights, roads and electric power.

    In Colorado well construction is listed and public knowledge.

    do not by property w/o:
    access to government maintained roads
    immediate access to electric power
    must have water

    avoid property with undefined easements running through it

    talk to all neighboring property owners before you buy.

    You can research a lot about the property at the local court house before you pay good money for a title company to do the same. Dont get attached to the project and find the property is junk.

    i like the south west Colorado mountains.
