Before you buy land in Colorado or anywhere else, it’s important to have a strategy – especially if privacy is a high priority. Any real estate purchase is a big decision, but ensuring your privacy can be especially tricky. You never know who will buy adjacent land and what they might do with it. That’s why you need a game plan. Here’s what we suggest.
Buy Plenty of Acreage
What’s the best way to ensure your neighbor’s activities don’t encroach on yours? Distance between you and them. The best way to create that distance is to own plenty of the surrounding land. One of the best things about Colorado is that it’s still pretty wild. There’s tons of wilderness and wildlife, so putting up a fence isn’t always ideal or possible. Instead, simply invest in a larger piece of land that you can keep undeveloped and naturally beautiful.
Buy Near BLM
Another strategy is to buy land where having any neighbors at all is unlikely. The Bureau of Land Management has set aside 8.3 million acres of public land in Colorado, mostly in the western half of the state. BLM strictly limits development and sometimes even human presence on this land, so there’s little chance of a strip mall or resort popping up in your backyard if you buy land near BLM land.
Buy Near a Small Town
Colorado is home to more than 20 ski resorts, many of them world famous. While they offer fun and amenities, the crowds they attract can make privacy scarce. Instead, choose a small town. You’ll still have more amenities than if you bought land in the middle of the wilderness, but you’ll also get to enjoy a more laid-back atmosphere. For celebrities and high-profile executives, it’s important to spend time away from the spotlight, and many small towns can offer that.
Buy Your Dream
Okay, so now you have a plan. Ready to execute it on the perfect property? Mad Dog Ranch has it all: offering over 240 acres that back to BLM land just 10 minutes outside of quiet Crawford, Colorado.
