Guys what do you think is the best way to go about finding a land owner to annex an acre to me in exchange for labor? Know of any forums? I live in FL .

Thanks !

I would tend to think it might be considered an unusual way to make a financial exchange. So, is an actual purchase impossible?, this would be the easiest way. Perhaps if you wanted to farm the acre it would be best if it was close to where you live. Are any of your neighbors farmers? Their land has intrinsic value, but your labor may not,unless you have a valuable skill, I would think they would just tell you to "git". Good luck.

What do you want to do with the land? One acre aught to be pretty affordable... Especially if it's just land. No house or anything.

I read somewhere that a lot of times old guys are not able to do the physical labor necessary to maintain these farms, so they will let younger guys work it and just break them off some land . or I could just buy it yes lol. Just trying to be thrifty.

I have seen many types of these in Hawaii. A land owner will build an off grid shack to live in while they build a new house on the property. Then they will rent it out or have a caretaker live there in exchange for labor. I have seen many on Craigslist. I would only trust Craigslist in the US for this though.

Where are you expatriating to??

Expatriates, Glad you're here; but you've got to realize that most of us are fairly strong opinioned people who aren't looking to move. Yep, many of us could grow you a dandy food plot. But we've already got our own gardens to tend too. Most of us are just too cranky and free spirited to fit into a commune.

Why don't you just join in with the other subjects. We may learn some good stuff from you and you may get a few ideas from us which is the purpose of this site.

Thanks for clarifying . But you don't actually think the dollar is going to hold, do you ?
I realize this may not be a popular opinion on this site.

I've been dabbling in investments for 30 years and have some formal education on the topic including debt ratios and speculative vs fundamental valuations. Having said that Yes, I strongly believe we have too much debt, both under capitalized current and future debt. Still the US is currently in a better position than most countries. We could go tits up some day but it will be a few years and if it happens it will be a slow process, several months at least but more likely a several year process.

In the current economy what will kill us would be if other major economies go down dragging us with them. Kind of the way we dragged down most economies with the 2008 mortgage crisis when many properties were too highly leveraged.

In 10 years it may be our social programs that drag us down. Currently our 107% debt to GNP ratio is slowing our economy. Kind of like having a large high interest home mortgage limits your ability to buy a new boat but you're still barely managing to pay that mortgage and will probably be able to get by.

Interesting FoolAmI........ The math as well as a system that is manipulated by others with an agenda, just don't work for me. But........ I have an educated friend who is a regional Wells Fargo Advisors manager. He believes their is no threat to the stability of Wall Street or the dollar. The both of us share deep biblical views.... except the dot to dot long running deceit I see. I believe e is just to personally invested to see outside of his world. Yes, interesting perspective from you indeed.

I used to run some investment accounts through Wells Fargo. Their returns and advice never seemed to do too well but that was 8 years ago since I stopped using them. Two friends stayed with them but the portfolios I managed have since done about 1.4% better by not using Wells Fargo advice. Their are plenty of threats to our and the world economy. And believe me when I say our and the world economy are tightly entwined. Maybe not step for step but close enough.
