[before_listing id=0 images= youtube=null] I buy and sell rural and recreational properties and have been doing it for over 30 years. I currently have land in 12 different Tennessee and Kentucky counties. Most of my properties are in rural unrestricted settings. Properties range in size from 1 to 100+ acres but most are around 5 acres. I offer easy owner financing with 5 acre properties starting at $197 per month. What I’m considering is: partnering with an individual or couple that is interested in LOTG and marketing my properties to other OTG seekers. I don’t consider what I do a job and I definitely don’t consider this a sales job. I show land to people, they fall in love with the land and buy it. I love what I do and enjoy spending my days talking about and showing rural properties. If this would interest you then please tell me a little about yourself and how you might be able to help.[landbuddy_listing id=0 youtube=null]

    Do you still have property available in TN? If so, please email me with more detail as I’m very interested. Thank you

  2. Eric

    Hey I’m an Iraqi freedom veteran of the U.S. army I’m still young only 25 actually. However I’m trying to learn how to find others like minded as myself and I don’t know where to start, I REALLY would ?❤?? love haha to move off the grid with others who are like minded. I get along with literally everyone but I’m a sponge to anything to do with survival or training of anything that helps one live better. I can offer my part as a work horse and more then willing to learn as long as everyone has an equal part in some way. Guys and girls please help me learn how to find others and make this come true. If anyone has any advice or questions for me then please let me know by emailing me at ericdwaynebradley@gmail.com

    I am interested and would like to get to know you more. I am part of a team working to create an organization that links together intentional communities and co-op businesses to share, resources, goods, services and even labor. I have access directly to our main group of over 7,000+(and growing) people interested in starting or joining a pre-existing community and the reach from that group is well over a million people. Would love to work with you and see how we can collaborate!

I believe this could be a great partnership and journey together sir and hope you have time to have a conversation with us and find out a little more about all we have to offer in return.

    How can one be assured that the property you purchase you won’t be forced off by the Agenda 21 coming into play across the Country? The UN wants to remove everyone from suburban and rural areas and herd them into mass metropolitan areas and put people into 500 to 1,000 square foot pack ‘em and stack ‘em units.

  23. Murphy

    I am very very interested in this. I have been trying to go off the grid in tennessee for some time now and have had trouble finding land specifically sold as being for off the grid living. As a matter of a fact this is the first. I am line cook based out of nashville and am looking to buy a plot of land that is around five acres and ideally no more than around sixty miles out from the city. Although if I fell in love with a piece of land I would certainly be willing to consider going further out. I have a decent amount of money saved up to give a good down payment and could easily and sustainably maintain the 200 dollar minimum monthly payment. Ideally I would like to double that in order to pay of the land as soon as possible. I see that you already have alot of responses, but if there are any properties left please get back to me. I can assure you I am very serious about this and will not waste your time.

  24. K.P.

I currently live in Phoenix AZ. I am a customer service rep and I work from home on my computer. We would like to be able build a Sand Bag House buy a water resource in the mountains or a forest area. Not out in the open. I am looking to go OTG in about 4 months.

  38. Kimberly

    Hi! I would like to speak with you about a couple of possibilities. A few things came to mind after reading your post.

    My husband and I are TN natives eager to get off the grid. My husband recently medically retired from the US Army and Im work as an instructor for a NYC based tax and accounting publisher (telecommute). We own 2 Maury county properties we are about to list ASAP (1 rental, one primary). We own an event entertainment business we travel with and I’ve had thoughts of making our travel trailer our primary residence but I know me. I will need a home to go home to. This is all new to me. 2 years ago I had an extreme shift and saw the world from a whole new perspective. It’s like Saint Hippy hit me in top of the head:).

    We plan to go OTG with a cob house on a property that has a good creek with good history. Please send me your details. Thank you! Kimberly

  39. Debria

    I am looking to buy property for off the grid living could you contact me on what you have I am ready to buy now

  40. Henry

    I no longer want to be part of an ego based society anymore. If you are willing to help me get started I will do anything and everything to get the ball rolling. I no longer want to live for myself but rather be part of a team that loves each other and is out to help each other. I want to reconnect with nature and go back to basic living. I am very interested and really hope you take me into consideration. I love you all and hope to hear from you soon.

  41. teddeygarvey

    Sold! It would be a blessing to contribute to this. There is much that I have much to learn, but am more than willing to learn every moment I am given. Also, not altogether unfamiliar with hard, manual labor. Please send contact information.
    I will become an asset, if you will help me get this started.

  42. Renee

    Our goal is to move to some land we can make our own off grid in 2 years. Please send me information. Thank you.

  43. T

    My fiance and I are currently in the military and plan on going civilian shortly. We have been looking for land in the TN area to live a minimal lifestyle. I have many military members looking for their own “little piece of quiet”. I am interested in more information about your land and your plan. Thank you!

  44. Ken

    Very interested in your community.
    I was looking for a few acres of land to go OTG on. We have the resources and knowledge to do so and are just looking for the right group of people. Please send us some more information on this.. Thanks Kennethfinnell at Gmail

  45. Jon Cherba

    I have some ideas for living OTG. I also have some ideas for a possible OTG community. I would love to discuss this further if you are interested. Feel free to email me anytime, I will respond promptly. Thanks

  46. Aliyah

    I am interested. My husband and I are struggling to live in on grid. We have moved to Trinidad to try a better lifestyle but was unsuccessful.
