I noticed we get this sort of question here often, so please excuse me for repeating, but I thought it would be helpful to consisely supply any of the below information for those looking to make a big move. 1) How did you find the area in which you homestead (if it was a large move from where you started in particular). 2) How do you research building code laws in an area? 3) How do you research taxes, and other "hidden expenses"? to narrow down your choices? 4) What other things factored into your decisions? (Laws for example, on homeschool, or homebirth, school choices etc...) How did you find these things out before moving (if you did). 5) What are you looking for in a "good piece of land" besides price per acre? Anybody care to answer any of these questions? Thanks, Cindyc.
