Land lording sucks. Long distance land lording sucks worse. Plan on spending a lot of your spare time over, how long was it? 10, 12 yrs? I'm personally looking for land that I can sell at a later date to play the real estate market. Maybe you can look at buying property and then building on it later or selling it later to purchase a home elsewhere in the same town? We built both our homes and we liked that everything is brand new and warrantied. To each his own...but we've found building a home is comparable to buying an existing home if you can wait a few months for the construction to occur. It's kind of fun to watch your home rise out of the earth.
