Country Real Estate

By - 2009

Looking for some country real estate? One of the best resources you can use is the guide put out by United Country. No, I am not paid to say that. I just picked up a copy recently and was once again fascinated by the variety of rural properties for sale all over the country. This is a fun little catalog of possibilities.

For example, they had a fifteen-acre "mini-farm" listed in Alabama, with fruit trees, pasture, a four-bedroom home and some outbuildings--all for $145,000. If you want just land in Alabama, 100 forested acres with a stream running through it was listed for $180,000. And if you want to buy less expensive properties in Alabama, there were nice homes as cheap as $65,000 (of course if it isn't country real estate you want, you can find many $5,000-houses in Birmingham).

Those are just a few of the examples of country real estate found in the United Country guide. There were also riverfront properties, hobby farms, stores, and more. They also had a new section that I haven't seen before, on real estate in Costa Rica. I'm not sure why they are straying so far from their theme (they say, "No One Knows the Country Like We Do" - and that's a registered trademark). But in any case, looking at the prices in Costa Rica, it seems that now is the time to buy in the United States.
