Today, I’m happy to present the very last parcel at Jacks Fork Farmsteads (assuming no one defaults on any of the others). I would have to say that it isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for a small property fronting on the South Prong of the Jacks Fork, there aren’t very many of those, and to my knowledge, none as easy to buy as this one.
Let me start by telling you the negatives: first, it’s at the very back of JFF, so that’s a pretty long drive, a little over a mile and a quarter from blacktop. We’ve built a good rock-hardened road to there, but you have to cross a low-water bridge that floods a couple of times in the typical year. Also, the last quarter mile is kinda narrow. Then, once you get there, there are a couple of springs that cross the parcel when it's been raining hard, so you can’t expect to build on every square inch of the parcel.
If you’re looking for a place with plenty of privacy, peace, and quiet, this is it, but it’s also a lot more than that. First of all, there’s almost a quarter mile of frontage on the creek. The bulk of the property is in level bottomland, and, in 2000, we planted it with black walnut trees. These slow-growers are only about 20 feet tall now, but they produce lots of nuts. They’re protected by our contract from being cut, but they’ll be extremely valuable when they’re fully grown in twenty years or so (long after you’ve fulfilled said contract with us).
I’d really like you to take a look at this place. As I said, it isn’t for everyone, but it is a truly remarkable property for the right person. I invite you to check out all our photos and maps and then take a drive out to see it this weekend.
7.26 acres fully surveyed and staked.

We will pass Fee Simple Title to the purchaser conveying 100% of the ownership of the property including all timber, mineral and water rights. We own this property free and clear of all tax liens, judgments mortgages or other encumbrances. As purchaser, you are not assuming any existing liens.

Access from Missouri State Highway 137 is by a single-lane farm road. You should be prepared to maintain this road yourself.
We do not supply water or water systems to any of these properties. Purchasers of these parcels need to arrange to drill their own private water well. For information on drilling procedures you should contact local well-drillers. Missouri law requires a minimum of 80 feet of casing in all locations and more in some. Permits are not required to drill water wells for single-family dwellings; however, you are required to hire a state-licensed well-driller.

You may not take up occupancy until you provide sewage disposal for your property in the form of either:
(A.) a septic tank and leach field, or
(B.) a commercially manufactured composting toilet system.
The State of Missouri says that any septic tank and leach field on less than three acres must be installed to Missouri Department of Natural Resources specifications. You can get information on these by speaking to the Health Department in your respective County Seat.
Since they do not endanger the ground-water, properly operated and maintained composting toilets are not restricted, and thus are permitted at all locations.
Open dumping is illegal in the state of Missouri. Before occupying the property, you must make arrangements with a State-approved garbage collection company.
Propane gas is available from local dealers.
Mail is delivered to the Jacks Fork Farmsteads entrance on Missouri State Highway 137. To establish a mailbox there, contact the postmaster at Willow Springs Post Office.

No Down Payment - Warranty Deed after Six MonthsWelcome to OzarkLand.com where, since 1982, we have dedicated ourselves to making Ozark Mountain land available to anyone who sincerely wants to own it, on a first-come, first-served basis. You don’t need to make a sizeable down payment, or any down payment at all—just start making the monthly payments.
All of the properties we sell are owned by us, free and clear. That means that when we pass title to you, you don't need to worry that some disinterested third party—such as a bank—may own an interest in the property. This is frequently not the case in the real estate world at large.
We give you a Warranty Deed guaranteeing the title—no lease-options, no long-term land contracts, but fee-simple title to the property after only six months' timely payments.
All of the properties featured in our inventory are available to you via our very liberal financing plan. In fact, we’ll finance your whole land purchase with less paperwork and frustration than you'd experience buying a used car, and with no hidden expenses and one low-interest rate that’s remained unchanged since 1982.
We'll set up a contract with you in return for one monthly payment. After six monthly payments, we give you a Warranty Deed to the property, and we hold a Deed of Trust and Quit-Claim Deed as security. We record the deeds at the county courthouse at our expense, and we pay all closing costs.
There are no penalties for pre-payment.
Terms are 9% simple interest for 15 years.
You may consider moving to the property AFTER you have either made 12 timely payments OR paid a $1,000.00 security deposit. You must receive approval from us before taking up residence.
Requirements expected to be completed prior to moving, include:
1. Sign up with a local trash collector. Proof of paid invoice will be required.
2. Provide a septic tank and leach field approved by the County Health Department OR a commercially manufactured composting or incinerating toilet. Proof of paid invoice will be required.
3. Payments on all accounts with us must be current.
4. If placing a portable building on the property, provide us with the name and address of the vendor.
