An increasingly persistent problem is finding land in the country with a few acres for building a dream home. A creative and sometimes profitable solution is to buy a whole farm after you have found the perfect site. Things to take into account are the proximity of water and electrical services, access to the site, and the view you want to wake up to every morning. Equally important is deciding how much land you want with your new home considering how much yard you want to maintain or the need for recreational hunting space.
The most common next step is separating what you want from the larger farm and reselling the rest which may eliminate the cost of your land. Another option, if it is affordable to you personally, is to retain ownership and lease the farm. This option allows a flexibility to later change your mind on how much land you want. Sometimes people build homes and find they want their children to embrace country living and need more land to raise show animals or to start a hobby farm.
