Talk about How To Be A Dirt-Smart Buyer of Country Property

As real estate guides go, this is the magnum opus. It has 750 some-odd pages on practically anything someone might want to know about planning and purchasing rural property. Some of the information is dated, but Mr. Seltzer has included links to find the current data in these instances. The material seems to be presented from the point of view that the reader is planning to buy property that is not intended to be their primary residence or first purchase. That being said, it is not difficult to adapt the planning methodology for a primary search, as I am doing now. Excellent work, and valuable as a reference even if not actively searching.
I'm still slowly working through this book. It's annecdotes have already provided those special insights better learned from the experiences of others.
Be forewarned that, if you're all excited about buying country property, you probably won't be after reading this book.

I, like most people, watch the property shows on TV, where the buyer walks around the place, sees the horses frollicking, and says "I'll take it!" and lives, presumably, happy ever after.

Real life isn't like that. There are dozens to hundreds of things you need to know before you put a dime down on country property. And once you know them, you may realize you were in love with the idea of rural life, but not the reality!

I would like to thank the author, Curtis Seltzer, for being a brilliant yet practical guy who has saved me LOTS of grief/money!
Overwhelmingly verbose. I'm in the stage of just thinking about buying land and it exposed me to the hundreds of possible pitfalls and questions to be asking. I feel like it will be a good reference when I move to the next stage, although as a reference it's a bit wordy and hard to find information. He loves to tell stories.
Even if you are just thinking about someday thinking about buying country property, get this book. It is a gold mine of information that will help you make up your mind about whether country property is for you. And it is great fun reading too. Then if you do decide to go ahead, it may save its cost many 1000 times over by steering you around potential problems.
Soup to nuts. Everything you need to know (and more) when buying rural property.
This book has a lot of useful info. It really expanded my knowledge of everything related to land ownership. The only problem is that it's just so much info. I think many of his chapters could be cut in size quite a bit and the same info could be conveyed. His chapters go on FOREVER! Many times I found myself wondering what the heck the writer was talking about. He just drones on and on.

Regardless, I would definitely buy this book again. It's pretty bland but it has a lot of need to know stuff in it.
We've been looking for land for about 8 months. We purchased this book and immediately realized that we didn't have a clue on what we were doing. This book is a wealth of information and entertaining. We would highly recommend it to anyone to read prior to even looking for their spot in the country.
