ABOUT US!
WE ARE A FAMILY BUSINESS (REICHWEIN RANCHES). THAT HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS, SINCE 1982 AND ARE MEMBERS OF THE BBB OF SOUTHERN COLORADO OUT OF COLORADO SPRINGS WITH AN A+ RATING. ****** WE OWN A SMALL RANCH A FEW MINUTES OUTSIDE OF THE TOWN OF SAN LUIS. MY FATHER HAS BEEN BUYING AND SELLING PROPERTY IN THE SAN LUIS VALLEY FOR OVER 30 YEARS (LONG BEFORE EBAY!). WE OWN ALL OUR PROPERTY FREE AND CLEAR, AND WILL BE HAPPY TO SHOW YOU YOUR PROPERTY AFTER YOU BUY WHENEVER YOU WANT TO COME OUT FOR A VISIT. WE ARE NOT REAL ESTATE AGENTS. YOU CAN CALL COSTILLA COUNTY TO FIND OUT WHO THE PROPERTY OWNER IS. YOU MUST CALL TO GET THE LATEST INFORMATION AS THEIR WEBSITE IS NOT USUALLY UPDATED.
WE ARE LAND OWNERS WHO SELL LAND AND OFFER OWNER FINANCING. IF YOU GO THROUGH A REAL ESTATE AGENT YOU WILL NEED TO PAY CASH FOR THE LAND OR GET A LOAN FROM THE BANK. MOST BANKS DO NOT LIKE LOANING MONEY ON VACANT LAND AND CHARGE VERY HIGH INTEREST RATES. WE BELIEVE EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO OWN THEIR OWN PIECE OF PARADISE, AND WANT TO MAKE IT AFFORDABLE TO DO SO! WE HOPE YOU WILL LOVE SOUTHERN COLORADO AS MUCH AS OUR FAMILY DOES!
WE ALSO ALLOW OUR CUSTOMERS TO MAKE EXCHANGES FOR ANOTHER PROPERTY DURING THE LIFETIME OF THE LOAN WITHOUT ANY EXTRA FEES. (OTHER THAN THE PRICE OF THE PROPERTY, IF THERE IS ONE). OUR FAMILY OWNS SEVERAL DIFFERENT TRACTS IN MANY DIFFERENT SUBDIVISIONS THROUGHOUT THE SAN LUIS VALLEY.

WE DO NOT SELL THE LOANS TO ANYONE (LIKE SOME OTHER EBAY SELLERS DO), AND YOU CAN START USING THE PROPERTY IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CONTRACT IS SIGNED, AND WE RECEIVE THE FIRST PAYMENT. THERE ARE NO ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION AND/OR RECORDING FEES EITHER! THE DOWN PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 48 HOURS OF WHEN YOU PURCHASE.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. CAN YOU GET A WELL PERMIT? ANSWER: YES, ALL PROPERTIES IN THE SANGRE DE CRISTO RANCHES SUBDIVISION ALLOW WELL PERMITS. THE WELL DEPTH CAN VARY GREATLY DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE IN THE SUBDIVISION (RANGING FROM 200FT. TO 2,000FT PLUS) BECAUSE THE SUBDIVISION HAS VARIED TERRAIN AND IS MOUNTAINOUS IN SOME AREAS. THIS PARTICULAR LOT SITS ON THE VALLEY FLOOR SO DOES NOT CLIMB IN ELEVATION SO THE WELL DEPTH WILL BE CLOSER TO 200 FT. A WELL IS NOT REQUIRED IF YOU BUILD A HOUSE. A WATER TANK MAY ALSO BE USED INSTEAD OF A WELL.
2. ARE THERE TREES ON THE PROPERTY? ANSWER: THERE ARE SOME SMALL TREES AT THE BACK OF THE PROPERTY BUT THE LOT IS MOSTLY COVERED IN SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZE SHRUB BRUSH.
