DH and I have been looking for a new home for months now, we're very specific in our requirements but last week a real estate agent we've dealt with before called us and told us about a property she has, its on 3 acres.
The house itself sounds perfect, it's very affordable, has all the mod cons, is not far from conveniences like school and shops and DH would still get to work in 40-50 min, he would commute 2 or 3 days a week max.
We never thought about acreage, but it sounds like it could be great, room for the kids to move and play outside, lots of opportunities to grow our own vegies and maybe even have a business in the future.
But what's the reality of living on acreage?
What are the jobs that need to be done to maintain the property? pros & cons and anything in between appreciated!!
