hi there , curious as to how your property search went and what trade-offs you accepted for the current land that you are on ? i am having a pretty challenging time atm finding an ideal spot in vermont and part of that is weighing trade-offs so i thought i would ask someone else's thoughts!

@fleeky Oh this sounds really exciting to talk about! I think the first decision point should be around what the type of land you are looking for is. What combination of forest / pasture / water features do you want to either have already there or be latent in the potential of the space? When you know this you'll want to learn more about how water catchments / watersheds might work in the areas that lead to those types of landscape. From there you should have the general idea of where.

our main issue :
cannot spend too much max 75k but more like 30-50k
vermont land has been bought up hard last year so at the moment we are torn between several concepts.
each place we find lately will have some fatal flaw in it. (last place we were into we found would not allow mobile homes , no animals, no farming).
we are constantly changing and re-changing our plan based on what is available and its tiring. so just sort of wanted to hear your story a little bit :)


@salamander so to be more precise initially we found a lot of really great land that was either too expensive or would get bought up too fast..

@fleeky One thought could be to look for something that has a lot of potential but was, possibly recently cut, to re-wild. This can be really inexpensive, and probably wont be super pretty for the first decade, but you can really restore it to something amazing and regenerate a healthy earth. Look for good water features and geography, nearby forest with good older growth.
