An Unexpected Buy
Looking for a rural home that is a good work commute is a challenge many modern buyers face, and their real estate agents are generally hard at work trying to find what they say they need. A few tours could tip off the agent to the difference between what they claim and what they really want. An unexpected buy could be the result of learning more about the needs and tastes of their clients because many are seeking low prices and a larger living area.
There are some areas where small cottages with relatively large yards are available, but couples looking for a rural home often envision living on an old farm. If the yard is large enough to expand the house, their agent might try to convince them it is a worthwhile purchase. Living on a farm sounds lovely, but being close to doctors and schools might be best. Couples considering a farm could find a small cottage with potential is surprisingly affordable and a place they can make into a good home.
