ATTENTION: Please Read The Auction Terms Carefully And Choose Your Option -- you are bidding on the down payment and purchasing the property on terms.

No Closing Costs And No Hidden Fees!

  • Your Bid Is For Down Payment on the price of $2,995--financed over 40 months (payments of just $72/month with $100 down)--which includes all interest and fees!
  • Or cash price of $2,495.

  • We've probably all said, "all the good opportunities are gone." Well, maybe not.

    In the vast Big Bend country of far west Texas there is a land of canyons, high mountains, deep ravines and panoramic views. The area is sparsely populated and it's a long way to even a medium sized city.

    You can expect to see wild life such as deer, javelina, quail and dove, as well as many others. There's a tremendous variety of desert plants. The air is clean and clear. This is home to Big Bend National Park, one of the nation's largest, and Big Bend Ranch State Park, the largest state park in Texas. Mexico is just across the river (Rio Grande).

    This gorgeous country has something for everyone. If you yearn for your own piece of ground where you can build a house, pitch a tent, or just relax and enjoy the scenery, this is it. If you're looking for a place to hunt deer, quail, doves, and javelina, or to pick up minerals and indian artifacts, this is your place!

    Yet many Texans call this Texas' best-kept secret, because most Texans don't know about it, let alone most non-Texans.

    Which brings us back to opportunity. Nowhere in the desert southwest--not in Arizona, New Mexico, or California--will you find better country. The big difference is price. If somebody were selling new cars in west Texas at 10% of the regular dealer price, people would beat a path to his door. Before long, the prices would adjust. Economists call this a "market inefficiency". Land for which you'd expect to pay thousands an acre is available for a few hundred an acre.

    Like any market inefficiency, it won't last. I think the only reason for it is that not many people know about it. But that's changing. Ask yourself: how much nice rural land is available where you live for under $500 an acre?

    The land listed here has road access. Following the auction, we will quickly provide you with a recorded warranty deed providing you exclusive ownership of this land.

    It is always advisable that you acquire title insurance before buying any real estate. If you decide to do so at your expense, I will put you in touch with one of the companies in the area. Guaranteed acceptance or your money back.

    I will accept payment by cashier's check, money order, personal check or PayPal. All documents will be sent to you as soon as your payment clears. Unlike most Ebay real estate sellers, we do NOT charge a document prep fee on our auctions. With us, what you see is what you get!!!

    Unless otherwise noted, there is no electrical service or water on this land; however, most tracts have telephone. This property is within Terlingua Ranch, a property owner's association, which charges modest annual fees, but which has a lodge, restaurant, swimming pool and other amenities available. As a Ranch member you will also have access to over 1100 miles of Terlingua Ranch roads through this beautiful country.

    Click on the following links for more information Terlingua Ranch or the P.O.A.T.R.I. property owners' association.

    Click on these links for more information on Big Bend or Terlingua.

    We'll be happy to visit with you regarding any questions you might have. Our family lives in the area and has deep roots in west Texas and we're always happy to share it's beauty and wonders with new friends and neighbors...come on out and let us show you around!
