Some Things to Consider When Purchasing a Tampa Home on Acreage
- Where is the Water Source From?
Most homes on acreage are located in more sparsely populated rural areas and as such will draw water from a different source than the traditional means of connecting into a main water line connected to a large water treatment facility. Some homes on large lots of land can be connected to a private well. This is good information to know. If the water is drawn from a private or local well, it is good to have the water tested for any contaminants.
- Is the Home on a Septic System
Some homes on land will run on a septic system instead of traditional sewer hookups. If you have not lived on a septic system before it is good to know how to operate a home's water using appliances and amenities on a septic system, as well as know the current condition and how large the septic system is. Septic systems require more owner knowledge and maintenance to avoid costly mistakes.
- What are Deed Restrictions and Zoning Ordinances?
Before buying a home on a significant amount of land, it is important to know what is permitted to be done with the land. If you are in a housing community you may be restricted on what you can do with the land surrounding the home, even though the property is large. In some rural areas where a home stands alone you would be surprised to find there could still be building and land use restrictions.
- What Exactly Would it Take to Maintain the Property?
It might seem like a dream to have a home with plenty of space all around it, but not too far removed from the rest of the world. The upkeep on even just an acre of land can be constant and even time consuming. If you plan to have someone take care of the land for you, what will the cost look like? Some communities that offer homes with one acre or more offer landscaping services in the HOA dues, but it is always good to know how much those dues are and what exactly is included.
