Lot Description

Here is an amazing 1.96 acre lot in a most gorgeous area, approx 1 hour south of Tucson.

In my opinion, this is the prettiest area in Southern AZ. NO exaggeration.

I am retiring and selling all my holdings at awesome prices.

FYI, I also own the adjacent 1.66 acre parcel to the east of this one.

I am also offering Owner Finance if needed.

I know this area well. You will not find a large property of this quality at this price... most definitely not with owner finance. This lot is close to the very exclusive, gated, "Morning Star Ranch".

There are many nice pictures in the gallery, but believe me, they don't do it justice... I have been to this property on numerous occasions.

The lot is north of Rio Rico, and approx 15 minutes from I-19 Palo Parado exit.

Property is on Circulo Milpas.

Power is at lot line.

Water lines also exist, however, I was told many years ago when I bought this, that a pumping station has not been set up yet. I am not sure what the deal is today. Regardless, this lot is buildable and you may have to use alternative means for water, such as a drilling a well, or water catchment system.

There nearest neighboring home is approx 0.3 miles away, on Circulo Milpas.

The lot has incredible views from it.

Free and clear marketable title is guaranteed, and all taxes are paid up to date.

Good schools, restaurants, banks, supermarkets in Rio Rico are within 20 minutes of the property.

Here's A Short Recap About The Area:

Rio Rico is a planned community located in Santa Cruz County, 57 miles south of Tucson and 12 miles north of Mexico. The community's 39,000 acres roll gently down from the Santa Rita Mountains through the San Cayetano Foothills westward to the Santa Cruz River. The area around and including Rio Rico was once part of a tract of the “Baca Float”, a tract of approximately 100,000 acres granted by the U. S. Congress to the heirs of Luis Maria Baca as the result of an early, unclear grant from the Spanish government.

The community had its beginnings in 1969 and continues to grow at a steady pace. Once a sleepy border community, Rio Rico is now growing at a rapid and consistent rate of 7% annually. According to US Census figures the population in 1990 was 1,407, growing to 10,413 in the year 2,000; and now Rio Rico Utilities reports that they are extending water service to nearly 20,000 residents. In 2017, the median household income of Rio Rico residents was $48,977.

Located at an elevation of 4000 ft. gives Rio Rico a moderate climate throughout the year. Summer highs are from the 90's to low 100'S and winter, a little colder due to higher elevation, ranges from low 30's to high 60's. There are two lakes located in area. Rio Rico has an excellent school system (one high school, two middle schools, two elementary schools and one preschool). Rio Rico is approximately one hour from Tucson, one hour from Sierra Vista and 25 minutes from the Patagonia Mountains. Some of the best golf courses in southern Arizona are located in our area. Rio Rico is active in sports and houses State Champion Little League teams.

This is a high standards area - No camping in Rv's - No Trailers - No mobile homes.

There is NO Hoa/Poa, and no time limit to build.

As always, free and clear marketable title is guaranteed.

Title will be conveyed via a warranty deed upon completion of payments.

Annual taxes are $100. Taxes are paid up to date.

If you need financing, here are the terms:

Purchase price: $5,900

To get started: A Down Payment of $300 + $139 Closing Costs shall be paid via Paypal.

I will send the buyer a Paypal invoice upon being notified you are ready to purchase this property.

Down Payment will be deducted from Purchase Price and I will owner finance the remaining balance of $5,600 in 20 monthly payments of $280.

$8 per month for prepayment of property tax shall be added to monthly payment.

A contract for deed will be sent to buyer upon receipt of Down Payment and Doc Fee.

A discount of $500 for paying in full within 6 months.

When/if ready to buy, here is the simple process:

1. Buyers email me their full name and address.

2. I then prepare the contract and email it along with the Paypal invoice for the initial amount to get started.

3. That payment must be submitted promptly, and I then mark the Listing Sold.


I'm a very busy guy. There is no pressure to buy, so please don't send an email saying you are ready to proceed, if in fact you're not... "Drills" are not necessary ;) I have sold thousands of properties, so I know how to do this.

Note for contract buyers:

I encourage my buyers to use the land while on contract, enjoy it, make small improvements, etc.

To be perfectly clear, in no uncertain terms... I am selling "vacant Land" - not entering into a "Landlord-Tenant" relationship...

That being said, if your intention is to live on this land right away - then you must also pay for it in full right away - 100% use requires 100% ownership.

I need to mention this because I've had a few folks who presumptuously assumed since they paid a few hundred dollars to get into a land contract, they can now "move right in" and do as they please...
