When looking real estate, bare land or property with structures, it is important to bare in mind how your plans and lifestyle will work on the land itself. It is wise to not impose on the land, rather work with the land, as going against the will of nature is always costly and time consuming.

Land is a big purchase and if you are serious about putting in a offer you will want to consider a Permaculture Real Estate Assessment during your escrow. The evaluation will give you a wide range of information, relating to the environment and ecology of a piece of land, that to help inform your purchase. Will this land have enough sun to grow fruit? Can we graze on this land? How much potential is there for water harvesting?
