[before_listing images= youtube=null] Living off the grid would be a dream come true. My goal is to have sustainable housing when I retire. I found the perfect property, but can’t find the financing. The owner will carry 50% too :(. Not to mention – I am off the grid on my credit I guess, because all I have is a car payment! Not good if you are looking for credit.[landbuddy_listing youtube=null]

    Try USDA==but my guess is you will have to keep looking. Even a small cash. down payment makes a difference. Still, it took me 3 years to find a deal I can live with even though the sale of my place in the middle of the oil boom will pay the new one off! Decide on your bottom-line requirements & don’t give up. For me, water & some sort of shelter were priorities. Consider what others won’t. I got a neat place on a hillside gutted of copper, but it has two wells, old house etc. Now to get there! Best of luck..
