I live here in mid Missouri and bought 60 acres of raw land in Southern Missouri 3 hours away. The problem I have now is I was too kind and let a friend move a shipping container to live in here in mid Mo., after a devorse. He is an older man, 81 yrs old and has kids with a younger Phillipino wife, so he wants to stay in the area. I let him add on a structure to the shipping container and let him plant an orchard too, so if I sell the place which I really need to do, how do I handle the situation. He also is far behind in rent that started out only $120 a month and I dropped it to $80 a month and hasn't been able to pay in months mainly because of mismanaged money. Still I can't throw out an old man and good luck finding a buyer who will let him stay.
So I guess what I am trying to say is, be very careful of people and don't let things get too binding, as cool as it would be to share your place with good people, don't get into a bind where you can't say get on down the road. Not to say don't keep a good and caring heart, but think about later on if thing don't work out.
Also, and only if you are interested I have a youtube channel if you would like to check it out. I'm not going to post a link but just copy and paste
