Coming to the Market – The View!

This property will be on the market very soon.  I located this view many years ago and the current owner has really made it nice.  55 acres…only $99,000.  It’s looking out at the Talladega National Forest.  90 minutes from Birmingham.  You can drive right through the property to this view.  You can surf the Internet sitting right in that spot.  There is power available if you need such things here.  I think a tent and campfire suit it well, but I can envision a great cabin there.  Private.  Private.  Accessible.  The owner has even got a well about 20 yards from this spot.  There is a great spring head on the property too.  Turkeys….everywhere.  Saw some today.   I remember many years ago taking my truck, parking it there, and working from that spot.  It does not get any better.  I’ve had friends camp there by permission.  Some of you reading this will recognize it.  It can be yours.  Call me.  256-252-9239

Country Acres – Big Hardwoods

County Road FrontageOne of the most requested attributes of country property is for it to have “big” hardwoods.  I have found that request to be very relative to what the enquirer is accustomed too.  For someone from rural Alabama or Georgia, big hardwoods better be sized for good furniture making.  For someone from Florida, big hardwoods are anything that is not a pine tree and you can walk under.  I realize this is a generalization bordering on a stereotype, but this is anecdotal evidence that these attributes are relative.  The same goes for “mountainous” or “hilly” or “rural”.    Nevertheless, us land brokers have to use a one-size-fits-all mentality when describing the properties we are marketing.  Our descriptions are invariably jaded by our own relativity.

The title of this article is Country Acres – Big Hardwoods.  I do not intend to disappoint.  For fun I will describe the tracts with buyer locale in mind.  You might even notice some of my Southern Anglash coming through too!  All of these land tracts are currently for sale.

Muleshoe Bend Outfitters offered by Robert King with AlaLandCo

New LogoAlaLandCo is proud to be offering for sale Muleshoe Bend Outfitters, a 1255+/- acre hunting preserve located on the banks of the Tallapoosa River in Chambers County Alabama. Muleshoe Bend Outfitters consists of 720+/- deeded acres, 5+ miles of frontage on the Tallapoosa River, 535+/- leased acres, a lodge, 2 bunkhouses, over 40 hunting stand locations, orchards, vineyards, BIG timber, and all the wildlife that comes with it. With 30+ years of intensive professional management of wildlife and timber, this represents an opportunity that is unparallelled in the market today.

muleshoebend (1)“The Bend” as it is called by it’s owner and steward, Dr. John Crook, is one of the finest hunting properties in the South. The property has been developed with a keen eye toward sustainability, both in the wildlife and the economic aspects of the timber growing on the property. The opportunity to continue building on this foundation is one seldom seen. Most “hunting plantations” have the benefit of a few years of management when these come to market. Dr. Crook has dedicated his time and efforts to this property for over 30 years. Thousands of mast-bearing trees have been established on this property. Miles and miles of trails have been put in. Countless hours have been spent perfecting the property to optimize it’s wildlife potential and economic return.

Muleshoe Bend Outfitters will be a turn-key operation, ready-to-go for it’s new owner. Offered alongside the real estate are the equipment used to maintain the property, vast files of information regarding property management, and the website, Muleshoe has been, and can be run as a pay-for-hunt operation. The website would be invaluable there. If a private hunting preserve or a family compound suits your tastes better, then the site could be useful as a blog.

More information about this recreational and INVESTMENT opportunity can be found by visiting our website, or by calling Robert King at 256-252-9239.

Timberland Investment Alert – Price Reductions on First-Class Timberland

We have been marketing and selling timberland in East Central Alabama for quite some time.  About a year ago, we began marketing a large grouping of professionally managed timberland in Clay, Tallapoosa, Calhoun, Chilton, and Talladega Counties.  We have sold several of the individual properties.  As of the end of last month, our seller has let us know that they are becoming more aggressive in marketing these properties.  We have reduced the entire package almost 11%.  Some of the properties have been reduced as much as 26%.

These are top-quality pine plantations with excellent management histories.  The best pine seed stock available has been used on these properties.  The SMZ’s have BIG hardwoods.  Lines are painted…all the things for an excellent timberland investment.
