Want land? Take it — it's free
Loup City, Neb.
Mayor Alicia Toczek welcomes newcomers to this peaceful town of fewer than 1,000 residents in central Nebraska, where the economy is built on "row crops and livestock feeders." In October, Loup City began offering six free lots in a subdivision. Three of the lots are reserved for buyers with a low to moderate income.
The lots are estimated to be worth $10,000, and buyers who do not meet the low- to moderate-income qualifications must put down a $1,000 deposit to confirm their commitment. For those who qualify as having a low to moderate income, the deposit is $500, and they can receive as much as $10,000 toward home construction, along with other perks. All buyers also must agree to start construction within 90 days.
Although Loup City is about a three-hour drive from Omaha, Neb., it has its own nine-hole golf course, and the Sherman Reservoir is nearby for fishing and boating. The University of Nebraska Kearney campus is about an hour away, Toczek says.
