According to the County Planning Commission, these companies were on the up and up, and sure enough have wind farms around and about the area. They evidently changed their mind about my area, which is on a main road in an area of already subdivided smaller parcels rather than really large acreage. It would have meant buying out many individual owners, many existing homes, a few businesses, and all properties would have had to be paid off. It was probably too spotty, i.e., my neighbor had a mortgage, and so he was disqualified.
When I call the local real estate agents about listing my property for sale, they advise me to call the real estate companies in the desert. When I do, they rarely answer the phone, when I leave a message often they don't call back, and when I finally get someone they're not interested in working! They already have too many listings and they tell me nothing is selling. I don't know of anyone who ever made any money in the desert, I'll be lucky to one day break even.
It was Bob's decision to buy the place. He needed somewhere to park his machinery before he died. L.A. County either wouldn't let you, or was way too costly, or both. So he bought these 5 acres in the next county which had fewer restrictions. Now I am an absentee owner, and everything of value including all of his personal property, with the exception of the heavy equipment, has been vandalized or stolen. Desert people are a breed apart.
