4 Reasons to Move to an Acreage

10 July 2018



Not everyone loves to live in the city. It can be crowded, noisy, and restrictive.

For people who want to get away from it all at the end of the day, choosing to live on an acreage might be the way to go.



Here are four reasons to move to an acreage:

  1. Quiet—Moving even just a few minutes away from the city can reduce noise significantly, reducing your stress and giving you a peaceful sanctuary to relax in.

  2. Room to grow—If your family is growing, the houses you can find in the city might simply be too small for your needs, and the cost of buying one in town that is the right size can be huge. By moving to an acreage, you get a more cost-effective home and enough space to make room for more—and bigger—kids!

  3. Area for animals—There are plenty of restrictions on what kind of animals you can have in the city. Anything more exotic than a dog or cat might be illegal! On an acreage, you have the room to stable a horse, raise chickens, and be the animal lover you want to be.

  4. Wide open spaces—In many city neighbourhoods, houses are squeezed as tightly together as possible, making things feel cramped and crowded no matter where you go or what you do. When you move to an acreage, your next-door neighbours aren’t five feet away. The distances between houses is significant, giving you plenty of open space to call your own.
