I have the opportunity to purchase 11 acres in Colville, WA and am looking for advice. The land is sloped with benches in different areas the steepest slope is 17%. The property has mostly ponderosa pine with shrubs and grasses. The annual rainfall is about 20 inches making water retention a key aspect of development of the site. I am looking to do an off grid homestead building gardens and structures over a long period as money and time allows. I’m wondering do you think this is a good investment? Land in Washington state in general with in my price range is scare so this seemed like a great oppurtunity. There is no well on site but a small stream runs through the property. No building restrictions on ponds or structures(first structure does not require permit). Thanks for any advice. I can give more info if needed.
