Thinking of buying a camp

Can anyone suggest any realtor websites and locations to look for a camp?

Ideally it would be basic, but have water and electricity. I like the area around Kinzua but am open to any area that is close to fishing, grouse and turkey hunting, and locations to ride atv's.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

It's a buyers market right now too.

You would think. I have noticed that most camps are grosely overpriced. I know when I was looking last year they were. It does seem this year they are a little lower and some small ones for decednt deals. People that keep the price high and they don`t sell year after year watch them rot away and then they really aren`t worth that much. This is mostly the people that doen`t use there camps much anymore and have mostly abandoned them and they wonder why it didn`t sell and it fell apart. I noticed people that sell camps over priced are more stubborn than home owners that sell their homes. I just don`t get it.

Warren County camps seem to be the cheapest on the market. I am hoping to get a cabin as well but will not pay what they are asking in Potter County.

I have been looking for years near Tidioute, Warren County and haven`t found a good/fair buy yet, so Potter must be crazy ovderpriced?

Re: Thinking of buying a camp

If someone is buying some of them then they must not be overpriced. Fair price = a price a buyer and seller are willing to agree to.
If they're sitting on the market for year's on end then obviously they are overpriced.
On the other hand, just because they're priced higher than you're willing to pay doesn't mean they're overpriced. They may just be overpriced to you.

I always considered my house my camp and never understood why locals had camps.About three years ago I started to understand why.Pretty much every weekend my daughter started having two or three girls sleeping over.I now need a camp just to get away.
