Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! It’s another Wednesday, and time for another Homestead Blog Hop. This past week has been a wild one. With one email from our lender, and about 30 seconds we had to completely flip our plans for the new homestead on it’s ear. The land we’re purchasing is worth way more than we’re buying it for. Which sounds like a great thing, right?? Apparently, lenders don’t want to back a property where the land is worth more than the house. I suppose for new builds they’re used to 1/3 acre lots with $300k houses on […]

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! Things are really heating up here! Our offer’s been accepted on 63 acres, we’re meeting the soils guy tomorrow to perk it, and we’ve scheduled meetings with three different builders. We have the blueprints we want, but have a long list of things still to do. We have to figure out where we’re putting the buildings, the driveway, and crops. We have to decide on a builder and get a more specific estimate. Then we have to get the appraisal done. And so many more things in between. The planning part is half the […]

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! This week at Hillsborough Homesteading is very exciting. That farm that we put an offer in last year, but backed out, is now back on the table. It’s been handed over to the county because the family that inherited it doesn’t want to pay the back taxes. My awesome realtor has been in contact with the county and we’re putting an offer in this week, before it even gets put back on the market. What’s changed? We finally heard back from the Army Corps of Engineers, who have no record of the property being […]
