The search for property continues...

Over the past month I've gone out with real estate agents and solo to look at a number of different properties. From the initial place with the wonky foundation, to a trailer on a swamp. I even went as far as to look at an old sawmill property (complete with LOADS of garbage, scrap, cement pads and what looks like an environmental disaster) in search of my property.

I haven't given up hope, but recent media reports that the cost of farm land in my area is a bit of a concern. It's not so much that people in the area want to farm (I can't tell you how much it makes my blood boil to see the amount of fields and farmland in the area turn slowly back to scrubby forest!!), but that people don't quite want to live in town but want the conveniences of being near town. To avoid the high taxes of our area communities, they go hide in the farm areas.... only to let the properties go unused!

It's really frustrating to watch this happen, especially with my limited budget and the pressure this is putting on the market. I'm still not too worried, I'll find something eventually... but I'm starting to get annoyed...
