Ottakee Posted January 27, 2011 Share Posted January 27, 2011 Just a week ago I got a call about them coming to survey our property. Well, a week later I have stakes in my yard where the highway is going. They have bought up properties near us and are meeting with a friend of mine today. It could be in 1-2 weeks they will have an offer on our place ready for us to consider.:w00t: Just a few months ago they said it would be 2-3 more years. Last week it was going to be May when they made offers, and now it isn't even February and they are making offers on places close to us. Most people are more than willing to sell and move on. We would rather not move. We have our 5 1/2 acres with horse barn and 5 bedroom house. I saw 2 places with the realtor on Tuesday and will see 2 more next week. There just isn't much with acreage for sale in our area that is suitable for our needs. We have contacted people that have acreage that might work for us--even things that aren't for sale. We are calling people in the area that have houses that might work for us as well. This just all seems so weird. The hardest part is that we have no idea what our budget will be. We have been told that the state is being "very fair" or "more than we expected" but until we have some cold hard numbers, it is really tough to know what is even reasonable to consider.
