Kristy: hello, can you see me? I think we’re good
Dave: I think so, we can see ya
Kristy: ok, good
Dave: so Christie tell us a little bit about you, what’s your background where are you from? All those kind of good things
Kristy: ok I was born in Ohio but I moved to Texas when I was 3 so I’m basically Texan, through and through, rode horses all families in the oil business, drove a truck
Dave: you drove a truck
Dave: so tell me about the farm. What was that like, living on a farm?
Kristy: I didn’t live on the farm actually I lived in just a normal neighbourhood house but we went to the farm every day I got to ride the horses I taught riding lessons and I competed all over the country so that was just my job actually I’m so lucky I got to ride horses and compete and train every single day for years it was amazing I loved it
Dave: and what are you doing now you’re still doing horse competitions right? And teaching people
Kristy: no I’m actually not I haven’t been riding for about a year and a half I just decided to take a bit of a break I still have all my horses they’re basically my children so they will be forever so they’re stuck with me but I don’t compete anymore I just kind of needed a break I did it from the time I was a kid so now it’s more just pleasure and just hanging out with the animals
Dave: I love it, awesome. And what are you doing for fun nowadays then is that pretty much what you do for fun, hanging out with the horses or what do you like to do?
Kristy: I like anything outside if it’s outside I’ll do it, hiking cause I live by the mountains and the beach so hiking, beach, taking the dogs out I just love being out in the sunshine and if there’s an adventure to be had I’m in
Dave: well I know you’ve written a lot of blog posts for us and so I would love for you to share if you don’t mind just for a few moments some of the blog posts, you told me before you’re gonna have to buy one of these pieces of land cause you’re falling in love with all these different areas as you’re writing the blog posts
Kristy: well I told you from the beginning I wanna buy a piece of land that’s part of the problem now I don’t know which one, where to go because every time I do a blog I see these pictures you know waterfalls and rafting and mountains and I’m like oh I wanna do that, I wanna do this, I wanna do that so I actually really don’t know whether I’m gonna buy a property or not it all sounds amazing but it’s been really cool to write the blogs cause I’ve gotten to know about counties and states that to be honest I don’t know I didn’t know anything about maybe wouldn’t have ever visited but definitely on my list of places to visit
Dave: awesome well do you have one you wanna share that yesterday I actually shared the Park County blog that you did because I was talking about one of the properties of Park County so if you wanna share your screen show people all this wonderful hard work you’re doing which as a matter of fact everybody, Christie actually has worked a year out so we have a whole years’ worth of blog posts
Kristy: so tell me what you can see on the screen
Dave: we can see the beautiful ocean
Kristy: ok now can you see cactus?
Dave: yes ma’am
Kristy: ok that’s the property I’m gonna scroll through these pictures as I talk about the property so you kind of get to see it and then I’ll also talk it, it’s 2,36 acres it’s in Snowflake which is in Navajo county Arizona I had never heard of Navajo County but I did a blog on it and it’s actually a very cool area I always thought of Arizona, I know everybody watching probably knows more about Arizona than me I truly thought of it as just all desert all hot, all cowboys which is, since I’m from Texas I should know better than that it’s not all cowboys, this beautiful property is in the ranch of the gold horse subdivision and it’s an awesome rectangular piece it’s got a nice shape, mountain views which I had no idea was a thing in Arizona, beautiful mountains so I’ll get to some those pictures too, you gotta see the hills there and trees actual trees in Arizona this property is right in the juniper grove it has some sage brush saw the cactus earlier so actually lots of greenery it’s not just a desert see there’s actually terrain and it’s not just tumbleweed which is really cool
Kristy: when I did the blog on Navaho I also went out fishing there’s white water rafting and there’s hiking there’s museums, in snowflake there’s Blackhorse brewery snowflake has a golf course the national forests, lakes, parks, petrified national forest is nearby its awesome there’s so much to do
Dave: why don’t you pull up the Google map Christie and let’s look at where is this property at
Kristy: ok so I just did a quick one here at phoenix that’s you know quite far but let’s zoon in so here’s the property the little red tag is the property it’s at snowflake, snowflake’s a decent-sized town where as I already said you’ll find a golf course and you’ll find a brewery and restaurants and all kinds of things gas stations and then show low is actually quite a bit bigger so that’ll have really anything you need and that’s about 45 minutes away so you have about 20 minutes to snowflake and then about 45 minutes up to show low I’ll kind of zoom in here a little bit more
Dave: which I actually had someone Christie call me yesterday that bought a property and they were actually out in that area and they were surprised to find out that there was a Walmart in snowflake so there is a Walmart out there
Kristy: you can get anything you need there’s nothing you can’t get at Walmart right?
Dave: right, exactly
Kristy: it’s the perfect spot
Dave [interval]: have you ever dreamed of owning land/ have you wanted a place to escape to unwind to relax, well my friend owning land can be more than just a financial investment land can become a place of bonding and relaxation for your entire family and that’s why generation family properties and I want to be part of making your land dreams come true beginning November 1st all the way through the end of the year text freeland, that’s f-r-e-e-l-a-n-d all one word, not two words just one word freeland to 44222 again text freeland to 44222.

Kristy: and the other thing I did not know that maybe people watching won’t know I assumed Arizona was gonna be 125 degrees, horrible. Snowflake the average temperature in the summer is in the 80s
Dave: in the 80s that’s a lot better than a hundred degrees
Kristy: and low humidity so I again coming from Texas I’m used to high humidity which is horrible this low humidity super mild summers and then it rarely goes below freezing during the winter so it’s an awesome climate for people that wanna get away from the northern harsh climate or even somebody like me from Texas who would’ve never thought to buy property in Arizona to escape the heat this is actually a nice dry heat and its sunny 270 days out of the year in snowflake
Kristy: yeah, you can get a nice tan
Dave: those of us in Minnesota need to escape there over the [inaudible: 0:09:18.6] time I think
Kristy: there you go
Dave: why don’t we zoom in a little closer on where the property is at they’re actually a lot of vacant land doesn’t have an address but these particular properties actually do so in ranch of the golden horse witch Christie is zooming in right now you’ll see that there are roads that go through here and this property is assigned an address 3948 encanto road why don’t you tell us a little bit about what you see on the map here Christie it looks like there might be a neighbour or two but not a whole lot there in the immediate area
Kristy: yeah not a whole lot it looks like you’ve got a neighbour here so what is that pretty just over a hundred metres away and then another one a little bit closer maybe 50 metres away as you can see there’s really not much else all around except for, down here it looks like there’s a few too not a whole lot of neighbours you have a whole of room to do whatever you wanna do relax campfire you can ride 4-wheelers, camp
Dave: if I remember right these are actually it’s actually two different parcels that we have here
Kristy: yes it’s most of the parcels in this development are 1,18 acres these and its 2,18 acres put together so it makes a little bit wider most of the lots in this area are very thin, skinny and long so this one because it’s double it’s actually a really nice rectangle shape it’s not too awkward and its nice and flat and [inaudible: 0:10:47.1]
Dave: well what I was like when you have two parcels back to back you know some people wanna have like family near them so if you wanna share it with a family member you could actually build on both parcels so you could have two houses potentially which Navajo county I believe allows tiny homes right Christie?
Kristy: they do they allow tiny homes they allow mobile homes and then of course any kind of single family home with a foundation as well also and you can camp and bring an RV it’s a maximum 30 days a year so it’s not something you can obviously do permanently but it would be a great thing to do on the weekends or even for a couple of weeks in the summer if the kids have off on vacation and you wanna pop down and spend 3 weeks or a month hanging out in the area you can do that too
Dave: awesome well why don’t you share that website posting that you did on this property? Let’s look a little further what you got on there
Kristy: it’s just some pictures too so I’ll just scroll so it’s that’s a nice picture I like that view you can see here there’s some more of the stuff to do in snowflake there’s a video too on the website let’s get to the good stuff
Kristy: oh no, go ahead
Dave: I was gonna we have a Google map link to the property there everybody so you can go and map it out yourself and take a look at it
Kristy: mhm and the good stuff here only 20 bucks a year in Texas
Dave: 20 bucks a year, that’s crazy! 20 bucks a year
Christie: pretty good it is off grid so there aren’t power posts closeby
Dave: mhm let’s talk about the pricing so what’s the pricing on this property here?
Kristy: ok so if you wanna pay cash it’s $5600 it’s always a bit cheaper if you pay cash you get a little discount there but you also have financing and the financing is $7000 which has a 500 down payment which covers your document fee and loan set up fee and ten you have an automatic $251 in equity and then you can do as low as $85 a month in payments and then you can obviously structure that differently if you think you can pay more you can set it up that way if you wanna set it up at $85 a month and then you get a bonus once a year you can throw that on top there’s a no prepayment penalty it’s very flexible
Dave: absolutely so what we’re seeing these folks are just minimums so those are the minimums so if you wanna do a thousand dollars down and make it like 150 dollars a month you know that’ll get it paid off quicker I believe with that financing we’ve showed there it’s 7 to 8 years which includes property taxes and stuff like that, you wanna scroll down a little further Christie? Down at the bottom of our website we always have all of these details down at the very bottom so if you ever wanna see that you can check it out there and Christie if someone wants to move forward on this property you’re the point, person for this one what’s the best way that they can get a hold of you?
