In January 2014 I lost my husband. In May I saved one horse after another had passed. I decided I wanted to make my dreams of owning horses a reality. I searched online for affordable land with plenty of acreage. I found it or shall I say I thought I did. The add said make offer for 53.24 acres, that was listed in the $15k range.
I did and I was ecstatic that my offer was accepted. I made my down payment, and paid on the property for two years. I was looking for more land close to where I had bought this 53.24 acres a year later, so that I could start the process of buying it. While I was searching I found yet another 53.24 acres. But something was wrong, it was the same land I’d been paying on for a year now.
When I sent in my next payment I asked about it and seller said he didn’t know of any websites that it was listed on. I also asked for more information on how to get to the land I was paying on. Cause I have asked him on a couple counts if there would be someone available to show me how to get to this land.
I either never got a reply or he was out of town to email them. On the original listing of the land for sale he/they never stated information of a Prison located right in town off of main Hwy. His comments in a text message after I asked him about this was “As I stated I do not know of any prison” well he didn’t say anything prior to that about the prison. So I got him in a lie.
The latitude and longitude he gave doesn’t even exist on any mapping device. Not even a GPS. The Geo ID he gave isn’t even attached to his name nor located anywhere close to where he claimed the land is. Told me to go to court house for help. He sold me the land he should and has a responsibility as an agent to show the land in person, how to get to it etc… Know of town history, historical landmarks, town events, etc. He knows nothing about Sierra Blanca, Texas, not even knowing about the Prison.
If someone wants to build a home and start a family in Sierra Blanca, Texas this kind of information is important to know about. Who wants to start and raise a family near a Prison? He claims he did not know of a Prison as he claims he was not aware of the land I was buying being listed online a year after a contract was signed and still listed 2 years after the contract has been signed.
Someone else is probably making payments on the same lot I’ve been paying on now for two years with a cost of $7,760. I’ve paid thus far as of AUGUST 26th, 2016. I sold the only home I had to live in took a $30k + loss on my home to move and build my next home. I have nothing, I’m now homeless with the only roof over my head is my truck.
