So, yeah, it’s appropriate to take time and weigh the decision against criteria that are important to you and your family.

With that in mind, I’ve come up with a list of 23 important questions you should ask and answer when looking for rural property.

But, really, these 23 questions are more like 23 categories.

As you’ll hear in this episode, each question…or category…has many sub-questions, so it’s way more than 23 questions.
