There is no doubt that acreage homes are becoming more and more popular in Queensland. Whether it’s because people want to get out of the rat race and lead a quiet life, or they know their dollar goes further in rural areas, there has certainly been an increase in the popularity of acreage living.

Let’s take a look at some of the reasons acreage homes are so popular.

A quiet lifestyle

One of the most common reasons for people to pack up and move out of the city is to simply get away from it all. It doesn’t matter how old you are or what stage of life you’re in, the idea of living a more relaxed life in a rural setting is appealing to many.

When building an acreage home, you don’t need to have your house right up against your neighbour’s. Generally, you’ll buy a decent plot of land, meaning more freedom to live your life the way you want.

More value for money

Another good reason to consider acreage living is the cost. Of course, when most people move to the country they buy a larger piece of land and also build a bigger property than they might in the suburbs. However, the dollar goes a lot further when you get away from the city.

Location is such a big part of real estate, and the simple fact is that land is more expensive per square metre when you’re closer to the city and other populated areas. Moving to a small town, however, you’ll get better value for money which allows you to do more with your new home build.
