    My grandparents and i moved their mobile home on family owned land over 30 years ago. I was just a little boy when we moved here, and i was not even in kindergarten yet at the time. This land has been in the family for over 100 years ago. The only thing my grandparents had to pay were they taxes where the mobile home sit. To make a long story short, a few mouths (around September of last year) ago we found out that upon the death of the owner, his kids and grand kids are going to sell this property to real estate developers. Over the course of several years, homes ranging from $500k to $1 million dollars. These developers are chomping at the bit to get this property because it's prime real estate. This place is an Oasis. Our families DNA runs deep into this land. The history, and our families love for this land will soon be erased all because a select few individuals.

    The sad thing is that we wont see any of the money, and to make thing worse my grandparents cant just up and move their home to another location because of its age. Anything over 10 years old cant be moved. We farmed this land every year, and without it we would have not eaten most days. Once it's sold we have no where to go. We have very little income, and if it wasn't for just paying the taxes for where our homes sit, we would have been homeless longtime ago. I currently live in another home on this property that the owner let me stay in because i took care of it the property, but i never charged a dime. The only money i accepted because the owner kept insisting i take this money because i was work i would do around his home..

    I took care of this property and around all the rental homes on this property for free.

    The owners are in very bad shape. The wife has cancer and the owner has a tumor on his brain. They are both in the hospital, and they are in their 90s. I'm trying to get up some money where i can buy a piece of land. I have sold nearly everything i own. I make very little money from amazon kindle. I have been saving every dime i made. My grandparents and i are totally screwed because i only have $1923.17 saved up. I'm mentally and physically exhausted.

    How much do you think a piece of land will cost you? Having a target would be important when considering what avenues you are to take.

    Maybe try learning to become disconnected from the land, it appears to hold you back very much.

    Thats sad man. I feel for you. with an touching story like this, the best thing you can do is start an fundraising. Make a video about you and your grandparents explaining the situation and use some social media methods from here to make your fundrasing go viral! If you will do a fundraising. I will help you!

    Good luck ;)

    You can try to crowd fund a project if you are good at something, but the first thing you need to do is get a job. You can Google job facts, job tips, how to get a job, resume, etc. so you took care of a house and farm land for a long time, go and apply for jobs related to that. O your downtime, start to learn a basic skill you can perform and market online. What you need first is a job to cover your needs. Then start to build out anchors, these will feed cash you can burn in order to make money online. Its a money vs time process, the shortcut is money to make more money.

    Mental Disabilities keeps me from just that. I have put in for my disability already but have been denied. My doctor said he cannot understand why i was denied. He told me that sometimes it takes 3 or 4 tries to get approved.

    Easier said than done. To tell you to truth, i don't no how i'm going to react when that day comes. I'm not the only one in the family that feels this way, we are just powerless to stop it because we're not next in line (so-to-speak). There is a deep emotional attachment to this land. Have you ever got on you knees and took a drink from a natural spring after working in the fields all day? Have you ever stopped and picked an apple or a peach from a tree to eat with your launch? Have you ever decided you want catfish and gravy for supper, than that after noon walk to the pond and catch a couple catfish within 30 mins, took them back to the house and fried the up?

    All that's gone when a developer builds million dollar homes over top of it.

    My grandpa played and worked on this property when he was a kid... My great great grandpa made liqueur just right below the house here. It just really hard to deal with knowing a developer will be building million dollar homes over top of it all one day.

    I feel sad for you with an in contact with tale like this, the best factor you can do is begin an fundraising events. Create videos clip about you and your grandma and grandpa describing the scenario and use some public networking techniques from here for making your fundrasing go viral! If you will do a fundraising events. I will help you!
