Are you still dreaming about becoming a homesteader some day? Some day when you finally convince your husband to sell the suburban home and move out to the country. A day you can finally afford that pretty piece of God’s country where you can plant your roots and start growing.
You go online and fish around for properties out in the country, only to find yourself discouraged because the price is not one that your budget can afford. I remember those days all too well. Sitting in the kitchen of the city lot watching cars buzz by every couple seconds, dreaming of a quiet life.
There they are, those listings come up in your price range. You look at those properties with rose colored glasses and a vision of what it “could be”.
