We live on an Indian reservation. But white people buy houses and live here all the time. One thing I don't like though, the Indians tell you when you can burn and you need to get a burn permit from them. We can only burn certain times of the year.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75849520


Everywhere I know, the City or the County does that. We can burn in April and November, when it rains, LOL

Great thread. My husband and I discuss this often.

OP, which state did you decide on, if you don't mind sharing?

I am not OP ... but I am thinking of Puerto Rico once the bankruptcy gets cleared up and it starts being gentrified and rebuilt.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75369973


If you like the idea of being surrounded by lazy, entitled, talentless brown losers who can't speak English and hate you for being better than they will ever be, consider Detroit, or San Antonio.
 Quoting: The Comedian :D


Detroit's fucking freezing.

San Antonio is hot as fucking hell.

The people don't matter. I never interact with them anyway.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 65507848


They problem is, they like interacting with you, especially if there are more of them then there are of you. They also like interacting with your stuff, especially if you aren't home.

Consider Costa Rica, MUCH superior to Puerto Rico.

I had a feeling! Wyoming is at the top of our list. We've never been there (we have been overseas for more than a decade), but so far it is meeting our requirements (on paper). Thanks for answering my question, and best of luck to you.

Just take any ranch you want in Nevada. If the cowboy refuses to vacate tell them you are a friend of Harry & Corey Reid and shoot him in the back.

If your plans don't work out just sell it to the Chinese and whatever you do, don't forget to give Reid his cut.

I wouldn't buy mine further than 20 miles from a hospital when I was looking
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72317673


Unfortunately people do not take this into consideration good point. Or they will build a 2 story house with steep terraced steps on the verge of retirement and then within a decade they are forced to move again because the house doesn't fit their health conditions.

If you are going to build a place to stay the rest of you life make sure you can stay there the rest of your life!

But yes, to enter into a federal lease I wouldn't do it, nor an HOA, or any sort of encumbrance that is legally disputable by a 2nd party like a fee, due, mineral/water right, easement, shared driveway access, anything no matter how remote the possibility of dispute.

Many people do not consider weather conditions or area hazards such as sinkholes, mudslides, tornados or if the area is in a flood zone and water availability. Weather did not faze us as we are building a dome home that will retain heat in the winter and coolness in the summer but everything else was researched.

Re: Remote retirement or residential home areas how do you choose your areas to reside
I'm still trying to understand your original premise. Are you saying "Don't buy near Federal lands" or "Don't buy Federal land"? Your first sentence is kind of vaguely worded.

I recently bought a property in northern Idaho that is near hundreds of square miles of Federal and State wilderness, but I own the house and land outright. Are you saying this is unwise?

Can you be more detailed about what the problem is or could be?

I am surrounded by mountains, timber, wildlife, rivers and streams, and self sufficient neighbors, 12 minutes from hospital, six minutes from supermarket. I looked for four years for just the right spot. So I am very interested in what you have to say; I just can't figure out what your warning is.
 Quoting: Windsage


You can't buy federal land, you lease it, usually for 99 years. Buying next to federal land is a great idea, you wont have close neighbors. Most federal lands are reserved for nature and no building is allowed.

If you want to have an idea of federal lands try the below link and know you can rent the acreage but the government owns the land and it would not be wise to build upon rented land.

Federal lands must be researched as upon close inspection the land might be broken into squares like a checkerboard of public freely owned land and BLM land

Other states fall under Conservation Easements meaning you cannot do as you wish with the land.

Make sure the land you wish to purchase is free of covenants and restrictions otherwise the land is not yours.

I suppose some hardy souls will stay through the difficult days in Puerto Rico. Those would be, then, hardy souls who can be good contributors to a revised economy. Frontier spirit there.

This is not about proving who is better than whom. Although generally Puerto Ricans have a nasty reputation, not unearned. Did you see all the aid after the hurricane that wasn't distributed, or that was distributed and then put in the trash, and then many of them continued to complain and insult Trump? F them.

Regardless as to how aesthetically pleasing the views might be from any location why would you build a home in such areas prone to periodic catastrophic area. Further, why would you not properly insure your investment instead of believing the government owes you for your poor decisions?

Re: Remote retirement or residential home areas how do you choose your areas to reside
Flooding is mostly an issue with the Houston storm. I don't hear much about flooding from FL or PR. That's more wind damage.

PR is not a bad place to build. It's an expensive place to live, all considered, because everything from the mainland has to be shipped there. If we have to support poor economically unproductive people, we should be doing that on the mainland where it costs us less.

Living on such an island is a luxury, and rebuilding it in place is also a luxury. We shouldn't pay whatever it takes. We should invite those who cannot stay there to leave and be helped on the mainland, clear the debt thru bankruptcy, and then without any further encouragement those strong enough will be attracted back by their own interest and ideas, to build a new and much better Puerto Rico with their own money and energy, the same way things are built everywhere else.

If you are willing to pay the insurance premiums to live in dangerous areas then that is your prerogative.

Sometimes you do not have a choice in living in a particular state you can often diminish threats by choosing a location carefully.

Many people do not consider weather conditions or area hazards such as sinkholes, mudslides, tornados or if the area is in a flood zone and water availability. Weather did not faze us as we are building a dome home that will retain heat in the winter and coolness in the summer and stand up to winds.

There are many statistics concerning these threats that we took advantage of when looking for a place to retire, as we did not wish to place ourselves needlessly in harms way regardless of paying homeowners insurance.

If you like the idea of being surrounded by lazy, entitled, talentless brown losers who can't speak English and hate you for being better than they will ever be, consider Detroit, or San Antonio.
 Quoting: The Comedian :D


Detroit's fucking freezing.

San Antonio is hot as fucking hell.

The people don't matter. I never interact with them anyway.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 65507848


They problem is, they like interacting with you, especially if there are more of them then there are of you. They also like interacting with your stuff, especially if you aren't home.

Consider Costa Rica, MUCH superior to Puerto Rico.
 Quoting: The Comedian :D


Costa Rica is pretty expensive and it's outside US jurisdiction, which I consider somewhat of a risk.

Nicaragua has a bad sound because we remember the Sandinistas, but that was 20-30 years ago. Daniel Ortega is a fat and happy capitalist now. Someone living down there said the American retire to CR instead of getting much more for their money in Nica is that they have chronic medical conditions and need all the western doctors. Fine if that's the situation.

But so far I don't have such problems. My other retirement thought is Nicaragua. Leon looks like a nice town, driving distance to good beaches, and lots of universities.
