Homes with Acreage
Marion County’s selection of homes with land for sale can vary greatly. These large estates, some of them equestrian properties, range anywhere from five to 500+ acres. They may feature water sources such as ponds or pools, and may include a primary residence; they aren’t just open land. Should you take on a lot of acreage or a little? There are advantages to both. Ultimately, the property size that’s right for you will depend on your present needs and long-term plans for your equestrian property.

Land Is A Natural Investment
Many people consider their house to be a financial investment as well as a place to live. When your home comes with acreage, you double your investment. Both the house itself and the land surrounding it (as well as additional structures) have value. You can even decide to sell some of your acreage someday while remaining in your home and enjoying a smaller plot of land.
