Dreaming of Life on Minnesota Acreage? Video Tips to Help

Real Estate Agent with Boardman Realty Minnesota License#90858

Change is not easy. But if moving from the city to a rural setting is your dream, it can become a reality.

The idea of moving from a city or suburb to a more rural, acreage setting is a dream of many Minneapolis/St. Paul homeowners. Beautiful homes with sprawling landscapes of are available throughout Anoka, Washington and Chisago Counties. But acting on the dream can be intimidating. There  are so many changes to consider. Fortunately, with good information and the right assistance, the process can be manageable. 

Before becoming a REALTOR®  my family transitioned from a corner lot house in North St. Paul to an acreage property in Anoka County just west of Forest Lake. It was quite a transition at the time. We had to learn about private sewer systems, well water and lack of internet access the hard way. We just didn't know enough to ask the right questions. I have shared my list of tips in the past but have started a video series with similar information. Today is the first video which quickly explains what a Septic Systems is and why compliance testing is important when buying Minnesota acreage.

We moved from a local area to acreage and besides the increase in wildlife, we spent more on gas getting around.

Nice post, love the video, good information, we don't have  compliance tests, but do recommend buyers get the stystem checked, mortgage companies won't lend with a failing or failed system.
