Whether you’re simply tired of having neighbors or have big plans to start your own homestead, buying rural land might be on your mind. You may even have already secured vacant land or rural land loans to help you pay for a property you have in mind. But before you pull the trigger on this major life-changing purchase, it’s good to know if you’re making the best possible decision.
The video on this page can help you decide if the parcel of land you have in mind is right for you and your family. According to the host, who already went through this decision process, you need to make sure your land is in the right location. It needs to be far enough away from everything to give you the lifestyle you want but not so far away that you struggle to shop for food or get to a hospital in an emergency.
The host also says that you need to spend time looking at a wide variety of rural properties so you can adequately compare them to each other. Don’t just purchase the first one you see — you may miss out on an even better property if you do. As you do this, pay attention to the properties around the one you’re looking at.
