to start with, I would find the most experienced driller in the area. A guy that has drilled as close to your area as possible. Talk with them about where there is water. They often know more about the aquifers below than anybody. He may be able to give you some insight into the chances of water being found on your land.
Any experiences or advice would be greatly appreciated

How deep is the well across the street?
If he didn't hit water at 800 feet on your lot, it is not all that likely he will hit it at 500 feet on your lot.
