Could leaving city life for the country save you money?

According to the National Association of Realtors, 8.9 million people have relocated since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many people have moved from the city to the suburbs or the country for common reasons: 1. Wanting to have more space for social distancing 2. Needing more room for children to move around

You May Get More Home for Your Money

Depending on what city you’re moving out of and the rural area you’re moving to, you could get much more for your money.

The Cost of Living Could Be Lower

Generally, the cost of living in the country is cheaper. You might be able to get cheaper car insurance rates, groceries, utilities, school, childcare and more when you’re buying a rural property.

You Could Turn Your Home Into a Vacation Rental

When you rent in the city or own a condo or a smaller home, you only have space for yourself. However, if you’re buying a house with land, you could potentially build another property on it or rent the spare rooms in your house on Airbnb

You Can Sustain Yourself on Your Land

When you’re buying a house with land, you may have the space to raise chickens for their eggs, grow vegetables and herbs in your garden, plant fruit trees, and use wood from the trees to build things or burn in your fireplace.
