I went to have a look at a house that is for sale close to where I grew up. Not to enthusiastic about the location I was actually pretty suprised about how much I liked it.
Nicely isolated with a big “park” style garden made for a super nice atmosphere. It’s located next to a river that goes in to the ocean just one kilometer down stream.
Nice place to settle for anyone interested in doing that. Me, I need a better climate to be fully satisfied.
As for renting it out, a house like this is not ideal. To far from comunications and a big expensive lot makes for a poor cashflow and small customer base.
