What to look for/avoid when purchasing property?
It's hard for me to believe the time for looking for property is here but after selling our house, in less then 12hrs after it was listed, yesterday my husband and I are seriously looking to see what we can find.
We've been researching ways to find land/property for cheap and certain things to be careful of. But I can't help but wonder if there isn't more to the simple "buy this, not that" mentality.
I intend to use permaculture principles on the property, however I haven't taken any courses, I do have some classes to take but thought that I'd ask those that already know about it to give me a head start. I don't think I'll be able to study fast enough at this point.😉
I plan to hopefully be able to make my little business I started, that's been on hold because of the pandemic, grow into much more. For an idea of that here is this thread where I talk more about that.
I have several other ideas for ways to make money using the property. I talk about a few in that thread. There are a few must haves; I want to have runny water on the property, old growth/mature trees, wifi capable because my husband works from home and any possible YouTube channel potential aspects, natural gas, any existing buildings is a plus, partially open not all wooded is a plus but not necessary, and there are more I just can't think of at them at the moment.
If any of you can offer suggestions/things to consider/be careful of/etc. I understand everyone has their own plans for their property but maybe things you learned while looking/wished you'd known/had someone point out that was helpful. This is the last place my husband and I buy we want to be sure we're thinking of everything, weighing all options so to speak even considering in the future when our 4 kids are grown.
Thank you all in advance.😊
