When you’re buying an agricultural property in North Florida, whether you want to raise cattle on cattle land or you’d like to have a horse farm, one of the biggest things you’ll need to worry about is the water – and there are two sides to that coin.
Water on an Agricultural Property in North Florida
Buying an agricultural property requires you to look at two things: water sources and water that’s already on the property (or water that could build up on the property).
First, let’s look at potential water sources. If the property you want to buy is on city water, you’ll have to pay for that water each month – and sometimes, the bill can be pretty shocking (particularly for those who haven’t lived on an agricultural property before). For that reason, many people look at properties with wells; however, if you buy an agricultural property with a well, you’ll have to have the well inspected and the water tested to make sure it’s in good enough condition for you and your animals to drink.
Now let’s look at water that’s already on the property. It’s not uncommon for some areas of a Florida property to flood – and when you’re buying a property, that’s one of the things your Realtor® needs to ask the seller about. Sometimes drainage is an issue, and it can render parts of your property unusable by you or your animals.
