30 years ago I wanted a bit more for my family so I looked in several states for a good value in a horse farm somewhere — now I know it sounds kind of hokey, but I wanted a small, nice town where we can raise a family safely – where everyone knows your name.
With all the rolling hills of Kentucky – with scenery like Scotland and Tuscany and the million dollar horse farms we have here — and the historic bourbon distilleries, and the vineyards right here in the bluegrass region of Kentucky, I knew this was the place that we need to look into.
As I looked deeper into the area, I found this area to be a place with a high quality of life, with gentle people, close to shopping, colleges, golf courses, lakes, and antiques shops. We love wine and antiques – and all that stuff that we all want for our lifestyle. But that brings me back what I really needed for my family. I simply wanted 5 acres and independence. What I really needed was high-speed and FedEx delivery rest is gravy.
So with that in mind, we took a look more in-depth for a great community and we found Boyle County, Kentucky. For us, we just needed a place to have a horse or two, raise to beef, have an herb garden – a place I can raise a family and feel safe. A place that wasn’t too cold, a place that was a good value, a place that is business friendly and that’s why I live here.
I also knew that it was better to buy a wonderful property at a fair price, than a fair property and wonderful price. I get lots of calls from people just looking for just cheap land, but that’s not what we’re all about here.
We have good land value. It’s not expensive — our land is a good value.
I remember looking at inexpensive land a few counties away from here 30 years ago that was $200 an acre. I was less than impressed at the quality or value. You can still buy that land for just $1000 an acre today – so it went up five times — those land prices went up from $200 dollars per acre to $2000/acre.
In that same timeframe the land we have here Boyle County was $600 per acre – now that same land goes for $5,000 to $8,500 acre in large tracks so those land prices went up 10 to 15 times.
It didn’t take long to figure out that so-so property stays so-so. But good land always gets better — enough preaching — that’s a decision you have to make.
