Take a look at this one. It's a corner lot (2.3 ac gross) just outside of Alturas, CA in the Modoc Recreational Estates subdivision. There is an existing certified well and septic system in place as well as power (with transformer). There used to be an A-Frame cabin on this property however it burned down over 20 years ago and the slab is still there and may be usable. There is an existing split faced block retaining wall cut into the slope behind where the house stood. It also has lite horseshoe pits and a pump house. The bladder is missing but the well has been certified that produces enough GPM to be permitted. All corners are marked with monuments and it's not only fenced, the fence includes the 5 acre parcel to the east and the 1.5 acre parcel to the north (note: these other 2 parcels are NOT included in this sale) in the 20 years I've owned this property I have never encountered the owners.
This lot is ready to go. Most county residents live in MRE where this property is located. It's a corner lot right on Pencil Road and Mt. Quail. The address is actually 669 Mt. Quail. I have this listed with United Country for $49,999 but received no offers. I decided to list the property myself as the owner for $39,999 and I will do all the closing for you. I may even consider an all cash reasonable offer if you are serious about buying this fabulous property. It has fantastic views and it's waiting for a new owner.
I will take $500 down and can finance the balance for up to 15 years at 6% Apr. Monthly installments will include an impound account for property taxes and POA (Property Owner's Association dues) and will be $375. If you put more down the monthly payments will be less and if you put say 10% down I can drop the interest rate down to 5 %.
Power: Existing (power pole & transformer at front property line)
Water: Existing certified well & pump house.
Sewer: An existing septic system (certified) with 1,500 gallon tank.
Phone: Available (cell however is spotty, depending on provider)
POA: Property Owner's Association at $75 a year and current.
Gas: Propane is usually used here.
Topo: Flat meadow on westside and gentle hill sloping up toward back..
Elevation Over 4,500 ft. +/-
Conveyance I will issue a Grant Deed once paid in full.
Fees I will require a $299 document fee in addition to a down payment.
Terms: Cash or I can finance with a minimum down payment of $700 with the balance financed by me at 6% APR amortized for up to 15 years. Payments will include a pro-rated amount for property taxes and POA and will be around $400 a month.
Restrictions: Cc&R's will be provided.
No Time Limit to build, however if you wish to occupy the land on a temporary basis without building you can do so for up to 30 days. If you wish to build a habitable domain then you will have to Pay Off the balance before doing so, otherwise you can enjoy the property and keep it maintained during the life of the contract.
Feel free to email, text, or phone me with any questions you may have and thank you for stopping by and expressing an interest in this property. FYI the cost of installing a septic system, drilling a well and bringing power to a property far exceeds what I am asking here for the total package.
Directions to Lot
From Alturas take the highway 395 north about 3 miles out of town to Pencil Road (paved). Go another 4-5 miles to the intersection of Mt. Quail. Turn right and the property is on the left. It fronts Mt. Quail on the south and Pencil Road on the west. Access is through a steel gate, currently locked, however arrangements can be made for you to access.
