This location is perfect as a Prepper Place, as it happens to be on the east side of the Continental Divide behind 3 tall mountains that would dissipate a wall of radioactivity coming from California or Arizona. The "Top Secret" I mentioned earlier is that in Joel M Skousen's book - "Strategic Relocations" is that New Mexico only has a two star prepper rating as far as the States are concerned so it is NOT promoted as a "Prepper Area", BUT there is one sentence in the chapter on New Mexico, where he states on page 235, "To find safe places in New Mexico, one has to carefully locate away from the major population centers, the nuclear targets and the hostile zone with Mexico. Generally, that leaves the far northern area and the mountains bordering Arizona", where this property is.

This 4.21 acre property is beautifully treed, level land with a gentle slope at the back of the property. There is also a leveled pad for another building be it a home, shop or whatever you wish to add. Tucked in a peaceful, "protected by mountains" valley, this cozy, partly furnished, move-in-ready cabin / studio has a full size double-car garage attached. Winters are beautiful with many sunny days and minimal snow. There are more elk than people in Catron County, New Mexico. In fact, there is only 1/2 person per square mile. As our area is still one of the 7 dark areas left on the planet, you can star gaze, and actually see the milky way. Due to our closeness to the "Very Large Array", we also have very few to no Chem Trails.

Bring or buy a telescope and you'll see even more! Besides the cabin and garage, this 7600 elevation property includes: Electricity brought in via electric poles; Gravel driveway meets concrete ramp into garage; Septic is in and operational; Electric garage door opener; Baseboard heat in garage and cabin; Evap Cooler in a window of the garage; The Hot water heater is in the garage and supplies hot water to both the cabin and garage. Furnishings (if wanted): A twin size bed w/sheets, pillow and bedspread, a fridge, stove, toaster, coffee maker, blender, tea kettle, utensils for cooking and eating, glasses, mugs, dishes, pots and pans, small table and chairs in the breakfast nook.

As mentioned earlier, this little cabin is move-in-ready! Any questions, give us a shout.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
