Alabama has some of Lowest Property Taxes in the US

Alabama has some of the lowest property taxes in the nation.  A Forbes article, written in 2020, says that Alabama has the second lowest property tax rate in the country (0.48%), behind Hawaii (0.36%) Low property tax is one very good reason to invest in rural land in Alabama.

Safer on YOUR Acres- Shooting House Roundup

Taking a few minutes to spray Roundup around your shooting houses, feeders, and tractor implements is one of the best ways to prevent encounters with venomous snakes. Each year when hunting clubs host their clean-up days, there are often snakes in and around the shooting houses that are grown up. Shooting houses offer cover to mice and insects, which in turn often draws snakes. Rattlesnakes and copperheads are particularly fond of this sort of habitat. Please watch the short video …

Safer on YOUR Acres- The Origin

Safer on YOUR Acres was born as a direct response to the Covid- 19 crisis. Alabama and many other states and municipalities issued “Safer at Home” orders. Since mid-March, people have been encouraged to stay at home as much as possible, and to stay indoors much of the time. There are many scientific studies that indicate that being outdoors is healthy for our whole being: physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Most of us know this intuitively. There is no better way …

Safer On YOUR Acres

Nothing allows you to live out your personal values like living out on acreage. Outside the confines of city streets, Home Owners Associations, and the view of your neighbors, you can be you. This is one of the reasons my family loves living way away from it all. For many people, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought important things to the forefront of their minds that perhaps had been stuffed to the back. Everyone was suddenly confronted with decisions about distancing …
