Do you want to know a main reason why people move out of the city and find themselves a nice place with plenty of acres around them? Basically, people are tired of being so close to other people! They want some privacy. One way to ensure that is to buy a home with acreage. That way, the nearest neighbor is… far away.
Imagine that you’re living in a city or some suburbs where your nearest neighbor is either connected to you or about six feet away. Ugh. You can hear them partying at late hours and you wish they’d just quiet down because you want to sleep, right? Or they park their car on your lawn. They throw their garbage into your can. They get your mail for you when you’re away even though you didn’t ask them to. And they stand outside and complain– to you– about everything and anything. Again, frustrating.
If you want some peace and tranquility, and you want to get away from annoying neighbors, then get a house with some acreage. You can add trees, fencing and other things to be even more secluded!
Surrounded by Nature
Besides privacy, some people love being surrounded by nature. They can’t get that in the city, but in a more rural area, where you can have, say, 10 acres around you that’s yours, it’s like living in your own private park! You can enjoy the trees and landscaping and/or add/create your own. Create your own version of paradise. Add a garden, a pool/patio, or whatever you want (a gazebo perhaps? Or a dirt bike trail?) to make your property the kind of place you don’t want to leave.
Opportunities With Extra Land
With a lot of acreage, if you have family members who want to live near you, but you don’t want them “too close,” you could always have them build their house a few acres over– this works well if grandma wants to live close by but not interfere “too much” with her son and his family, right? You can also use your extra acres for income– plant a pumpkin patch or apple orchard. Lease space to hunters, solar panel power companies, wireless carrier towers, etc.
Room for Expansion
Finally, it’s nice to have a house with acreage if and when you want to expand your own house someday, making it physically bigger with more rooms and storage space. With acreage, there’s room to grow! Plus, there’s plenty of room to park/store your giant RV, boat or other vehicles.
