Buying Homestead Land and What to Look For
by: Countryfarm Lifestyles

Hi Tosha

In short make a list of what you want but it should have as a minimum gentle slopes, good views, and any homestead land must have it's own water supply.

However, this is certainly not the whole picture. When buying homestead land there are so many other pitfalls that you need to know about and know how to avoid them, before you make your purchase.

To answer this question properly I have done so by building a page on this subject called Homestead Land.

There are so many aspects that need to be taken into consideration and unfortunately space here doesn't allow me to do justice to this question here.

If you still have questions after reading the article, please feel free to contact me again. Perhaps others can also add to this and give us their viewpoints.
