In 2014, we started searching for affordable land to build our off-grid homestead. It took us nearly a year of searching before we finally purchased the property we have today. In the process, we learned a LOT about what makes a good parcel and what doesn’t.
Raw land may seem pretty straightforward, but if you aren’t careful, there are a lot of potential pitfalls. It may also feel like all of the good tracts are taken. Are there really any cheap properties left for the rest of us normal folks?
The good news is YES, there is land left, and it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to get it.
This quick guide will show you where to start your search and some things to watch out for. You also get a free checklist to print out and use to compare parcels while you search.
