Most of the current owners feel that Stagecoach Trails is a good opportunity to own a large yet affordable piece of Arizona to use now or to hold for the future. Some of the owners plan to retire on the property, others plan to pass it down to their children or grandchildren, while still other owners plan to subdivide the property into smaller parcels at a later date, probably keeping one and selling the others. Many of the property owners also plan to utilize the property as a permanent home or a recreational getaway.
Yes, to date several people have already built on their property. More people than initially anticipated are planning on occupying their property sooner than later.
The State of Arizona allows an individual to subdivide their property into no more than five parcels. However, be aware that county zoning must be complied with. Because the current zoning is AR-36 you will need to apply for a rezone in order to subdivide. The Developer asks that you wait a minimum of 18 months after your purchase before doing so.
Currently, electric service is available to a limited number of ranch parcels. However, utility easements have been established to allow for the future extension of electricity along the parcel boundaries by owners at some future date. People wishing power today can also use propane gas and/or generators refrigerators, cooking and heating purposes. Solar power technology is also an excellent alternative form of energy. Waste water disposal for Stagecoach Trails is achieved by individual septic systems.
100% of the water rights for each parcel are conveyed to every Stagecoach Trails property owner. Water for your Stagecoach Trails parcel is to be provided by individual wells on your own parcel at your cost. The Arizona Department of Water resources has provided a water statement which indicates that wells in the area of Stagecoach Trails have depths from as low as 80 feet to over several hundred feet. To date, many parcel owners have successfully drilled wells on their properties. For example, water for the Stagecoach Trails land office in Yucca is provided by an individual well system at a depth of 325 feet. The cost for drilling a domestic water well runs approximately $20 per foot, depending upon the size.
Most of Arizona properties are sold without the mineral rights, as mineral rights are often reserved by the Government or previously retained by the railroads, which allows others the right to enter onto others property to remove any minerals. At Stagecoach Trails, 100% of the mineral rights are transferable, and the Developer has initially decided to include them in your purchase.
The zoning at Stagecoach Trails is currently AR-36. This means the property is zoned Agricultural-Residential and allows one residence per 36 acres. Currently, the approximate annual property taxes on a 40 acre ranch parcel at Stagecoach Trails calculates to run a little over 1% of the purchase price per year. ( i.e. - $20,000 @ .0125 = $225/ year)
Your payments will be made to a bonafide Contract Servicing Agent (not the developer), which is currently First American Title - Trust Department, who will account for all payments. This third party will keep track of your balance and payments at all times and will indicate when the purchase price is paid in full.
Yes, beginning the very day you sign the contract, the land is yours to use and enjoy. Since all the property is being held in trust by First American Title as Trustee, upon full payment of the Purchase Price for your property, First American Title will issue a Deed to the property giving you free and clear title and a title insurance policy on the property you have purchased.
While there is no guarantee of profit from any land sale, our prices have increased every year. We believe there are many reasons for this upward trend, including inflation, population growth, a decreasing supply of land, the public's desire for a more natural environment, trend toward movement away from urban areas and the increasing popularity of outdoor recreational activities.
The Developer has established the Santa Fe Ranch Property Owners Association whose main purpose is to maintain the roads within Stagecoach Trails. Maintaining the access roads within the development will allow our Property Owners access to their parcels in the future and it is believed it will help to enhance and preserve property values. The Association currently has dues of $135.00 per year per parcel. The dues cannot increase more than 10% per year to meet the needs of the Association without a majority vote of the Property Owners. In an effort to help protect the natural beauty and to enhance and help protect the future value of the property, the Developer of Stagecoach Trails has recorded some thoughtful protective guidelines (i.e. Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (C.C.R.s)), which are readily available for review.
The Developer prices the various 40 acre ranch properties according to an “A B C” analysis and consideration of the proximity of the parcels to existing electric. A B C stands for Access, Beauty and Character. In other words, how quick or easy is the access to the property from the Interstate or the main county road, etc. The beauty of the property pertains to the vegetation, views, proximity to the mountains, etc. The character of the property refers to the topography, is the parcel flat, rolling, steep? Does the parcel have a large wash or several arroyos? During the last few years our sales prices have increased due to supply and demand. We believe this trend will continue.
The exact number of parcels available is always changing because the demand continues to be so strong. Each new unit or phase offers an excellent and exciting variety of private ranch parcels to choose from.
Each parcel is approximately 40 acres in size (equal to approximately 14 (100' x 125') city lots or 1,742,400 square ft.!) You may also purchase more than one parcel if you wish.
There is no catch. We purchase large properties at a low price. By buying larger parcels it is possible to get a lower price per acre. We then subdivide the property into 40 acre ranches and pass our savings on to our customers.
