I know what you’re thinking: “It’s too good to be true.” In this video, Becky from Becky’s Homestead explains how people with very little money can get themselves a small plot of land. Now she doesn’t mean literally no money. However, as you’ll see, owning a piece of land in the countryside is not a pipe dream. In fact, it is very doable.
First of all, you’re going to have to do more than a simple Google search for “land for sale.” You need to gather local newspapers from counties all over your state. Oftentimes there are great deals in these papers that get overlooked. Look for land for sale by owner because if you try to go through a bank, they’ll likely you turn you down for having little money or bad credit.
Second of all, the property you get doesn’t have to be that large. Several years ago, my parents purchased 60 acres of land, but it ended up being way more land than they needed. Most of the garden and livestock was on just a few acres, and the rest of the land just sat there unused. What a waste! As Becky says, “Two to three acres is plenty of land for a homestead.”
