The net came out to around $70K - which pretty much paid for the 7 acres of land when factoring in the few grand I got for the lumber as well. I should be able to harvest about 1/2 acre a year in perpetuity going forward. That should add about $30,000 - $40,000 a year in net income to my bottom line annually. Not a bad deal. Just the ginseng on the property alone should pay for the costs associated with building the house in less than 10 years.
Damn can I filter by ginseng on Zillow???
