This parcel is located on relatively level ground, and it’s covered with big black oaks.

Recently, we’ve had to foreclose a property that is at the very back of a group of properties we sold ourselves out of ‘way back in the 90s, which we call Wilderness Park. We had fewer restrictions then, and fewer means of policing them, so over the years, several homesteads have developed on the properties you drive past to get to the parcel in question.

We’re afraid that we’d have a revolt if we told the new owner of this parcel that they can’t live in a mobile home, school bus, or shipping container when everyone around them does exactly that.

So, here’s our plan to sell this parcel just the way it is, but with a somewhat different payment structure. To wit: we’ll sell you this parcel for $28,900 which we’ll finance for 15 years at $293.12 per month OR we’ll sell it to you for $18,500 CASH with no restrictions at all. That’s a savings to you of $10,400!

The parcel itself is completely clean except for some junk and livestock in the southeast corner, unfortunately that junk and those goats, geese, ducks and what have you, all belong to the neighbor to the south. See the photo with the goats above? This photo was taken standing right on the survey pin for the southeast corner. Only about a third of this stuff is on the parcel. There is no fence.

If you’re interested in this parcel, email us about which deal you want to make and we’ll instruct you from there.

Legal Description
WILDERNESS PARK PARCEL E: All that part of the Northwest Quarter of the West Half of Lot 2 of the Northeast Fractional Quarter of Section 1, Township 21 North, Range 7 West lying north of the access road thereon.
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. We will record a Warranty Deed to the property in your name after you have made six monthly payments.
Access to the property via Private Road 9951 (Howell County).
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. Current prices charged by local well-drillers run around $8 per foot to drill and $9-13 per foot to install a 6-inch casing. Missouri law requires a minimum of 80 feet of casing in all locations and more in some. The estimated cost of a complete well, casing, and pump system in this area is $7,500. Permits are not required to drill water wells for single-family dwellings; however, you are required to hire a state-licensed well-driller.

Electrical service has been extended to the northwest corner of the property. Commercial electricity is provided to the area by: HOWELL-OREGON ELECTRIC CO-OP www.hoecoop.org 6327 N US Hwy 63 West Plains, MO 65775 (888)HOE-POWER (1-888-463-7693)

Telephone and Internet
Telephone and internet services are provided to Wilderness Park by CenturyLink1-800-201-4099. http://www.centurylink.com/ For cell phone service, we recommend US Cellular and for internet, a satellite provider.

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.

Garbage Disposal
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 Delivery
Mail is delivered to Wilderness Park on Highway 142. To establish a mailbox there, contact the postmaster at Thayer Post Office.
Deed Restrictions
1. No buildings shall be constructed closer than 100 ft. from a roadway or 30 ft. from a boundary. (This may be adjusted in certain locations.)

Explanation: buildings placed closer can cause situations that interfere with road maintenance and utility transmission.

2. No refuse, debris, unused building materials nor derelict vehicles shall be allowed to collect on the premises.

Explanation: piles of junk are not only unsightly, but tend to spread to adjoining vacant parcels. Dead cars and junk make it harder for us to sell adjacent properties, or for you to sell yours.

3. You may keep whatever livestock or pets you wish so long as they are not allowed to create a nuisance to neighboring land owners.

Explanation: this probably means that if you want to keep pigs in the most common fashion, you need a parcel of at least 5 acres with a back corner located away from anyone else's home. Lots of barking dogs may also cause you problems depending on the size of your parcel and how you locate your facilities.

4. No parcel shall be further subdivided.

Explanation: you may build more than one residence on a single parcel, but you may not deed away a part of the parcel to someone else.

5. All wastewater treatment facilities shall be constructed in accordance with applicable state water quality standards.

Explanation: if you plan to construct an in-ground septic system, it must meet state standards. We find that the typical state-approved septic system will cost upwards of $3,000 for labor and materials. Additionally, the state says that any septic system on less than three acres be built to Missouri Department of Natural Resources specifications. Parcels of 5 acres or greater are virtually unrestricted. Since they do not endanger the ground-water, composting toilets are not restricted.

Deed restrictions are restrictions on this property which have been recorded with the county, and which will remain in effect even when the property changes hands. Our contract, which expires when you no longer owe us money, contains certain requirements in addition to these.

$100 (estimate)
Building codes and/or permits
Howell County does not issue building permits and no building codes are in effect. The County Health Department must approve your septic system.
Here's an aerial photo we got from the County (above). Note the acreage is incorrect. The survey (below) reveals that the parcel is actually 4.49 acres.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: This is pretty simple. From Thayer, Mo., drive east 7.5 miles on Hwy. 142 until you see a gravel road on your right (north) marked 9951. From there, you drive along this main access road for 7/10ths of a mile until you see goats.

No Down Payment - Warranty Deed after Six Months

Welcome 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.
