We are looking at 2 places in Lampasas County. One as a residence and the other as my hobby area. I'm leaning toward a new build in town for the residence. Maybe as far from Lampasas as Kempner but probably not. I can buy a new 3 bdr 2 bath with garage in Lampasas for $350K but on a small lot. One on 5 acres around $385K. City water, city sewage and close to stores and eating places. I do not want to live at another place where I need my own well and waste water treatment plant. Both are a pita. If I were ready to go today, I would jump on this one: https://www.trulia.com/p/tx...1?mid=0#lil-mediaTab
12 raw empty acres out away from town will run (currently) around $90K, depending where it is and how close to a water source and whether it is already fenced. At my age, I don't really need the land, so I may re-think 2 places. Yes, trees are evil. I doubt I will get back into cattle but wouldn't mind having a horse or 2.
I do have to wonder tho, about a town whose big annual celebration is officially called "Spring Ho".
(especially since it takes place in July) .

Just out of curiosity is there a reason the acres are $7.2k per? Seems pretty expensive but I don't know the area or what the land includes.
When I relocated a few times in the past I ended up really enjoying it.
That particular land in the photo includes exactly what you see. 12.5 acres of Texas. Close proximity to Austin plus deer hunters are driving up prices out there. $7.2K is cheap. The property next to me (17.5 ac) sold for $350K in January, with a run of the mill 2 bedroom 1 bath all metal house on it. In 2017, it got 4' of floodwater in it. It does have 2 nice shop areas on each end of it tho.
