Before you start looking for your own home and homestead land, there are a few steps to take that will help you find the perfect piece of property to meet your specific requirements.

Check with local government. In rural areas of the United States, the local governments try to sell acres of land in remote areas. However, not all of this land may be suitable for small farms or farm animals.

Look for foreclosures

If you are willing to put in some work, foreclosed properties can be a great deal.  You will need to do your research to make sure the property is not in too much disrepair and that you will be able to get it for a good price.

Buy a propery at auction.

iAuctions are another great way to find good land, but you will need to be careful. Make sure you know what you are bidding on before you sign a land contract.

Check with a realtor.

Real estate agents often have listings for land that is not yet on the market. Working with a knowledgeable real estate agent to find a new home is often the best way to find homestead land, especially in remote places.

Connect with sellers.

Sometimes, people will sell land through a private sale. Landowners might sell off pieces of their land for quick income. This can be a great way to find land, but you will need to be careful. Make sure you get everything in writing and that you understand the terms of the sale.
