    Wow, this place is nice! It's an older farmhouse, 7 acres with buildings. It's close to an industrial/mechanical/blue-collar area(with lots of jobs available in Columbus, NE) Nurses and medical folks are really in need.
    I went there to look at their chicken coop- they are buying a small motel that has living quarters too.

    Click here:
    to LISTINGS, Acreages/farms and it's the one that is $104,000.
    DON't let the price fool you. In Nebraska rural areas you can get A LOT for A LITTLE>
    My kids are in this school district and it is great (i am a teacher). Taxes are cheap, everything you need is close, but not TOO close.

    I am not a sales person, I just came across this and thought I would share

    My kind of country. Out in the middle of nowhere.

    price is right.... looks like it's in a flood plain.

    Where does it get it's water?

    Shucks I already have 8 acres and no way to get up and get a house built on it.

    Cant believe how cheap it is........if that was here in Tarporley with that acreage it would cost in the region of £800K ......

    nice little farm - looks like the roof has been replaced on the house too from the ariel photo to the close up as they are different colored roofs [​IMG]

    Cant find that out here either for that price *sighs* not unless you go down to Southern parts of VA near the NC border area.

    Quote:Aren't you in school for engineering? I thought you said that once. There are several major corporations here. Behlen's manufactoring (one of the big builders of enormous metal buildings) Becton/Dickson is a developer of medical supplies. Vishay is an international developer of electrical components and supplies...
    All this within a 30 minute drive... Not to mention a hospital that is in need of LPNs and RNs and all sorts of personnel....

    Just a thought [​IMG]

    I was really impressed by it, it's a nice location, has a nice shelter of trees, which you know is necessary b/c of the winds here...


    PS- there is a TON of work available in Columbus...I have not heard of ANYONE getting laid off, they are adding shifts at Lindsay Manufacturing...
