We have been looking to buy land for a homestead for many years now and boy have we learned a lot as we have looked at many different properties over the years. Who knew there was so much to think about before making a decision? We certainly didn't so I just want to share some of the more important things we have learned in our search.
What we learned to consider when looking for land:
Wow! Who knew there was so much to think about...and this isn't even everything! Thankfully we learned all of this before finding the land we finally purchased to build our future homestead on!

One last piece of advice:
Get out and walk or ride (think ATV) the land! If you can't, then find someone who can do it for you. There is no better way to really know if you want to buy it than to see it and experience it first hand!
Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
