The Rural Rules Educational Videos for Future Land Buyers

The Rural Rules teaches how to buy country land

Posted by Tiffany Wilson on March 9, 2016

Introducing our educational video series, which features an insider's guide to buying and owning rural land.

It’s a common dream: Getting away from the city or that frustrating HOA-ruled subdivision and moving to an idyllic country setting, where you have more freedom to use your land as you see fit, fresh air is all around you, and sitting on the back porch is far more entertaining than any electronic device.

But, even if you were raised in the country, understanding how to buy country land and knowing what to do with country land once you own it can be overwhelming.

That’s why we’re going to take you step-by-step through the most common questions land buyers ask in The Rural Rules, a new video series we’ve put together with our parent company, Raydient Places + Properties.

Here’s the inaugural video, in which you’ll meet Jason Shearer. He is just the guy to share insider tips on buying, owning and maintaining country land.



Jason grew up in the country, working on farms and getting as much of the outdoors as he could. He studied forestry at the University of Florida and became a forester for Rayonier, one of the largest timber companies in the United States. (Raydient is a subsidiary of Rayonier).

There will also be guests who join him as he delves into deeper questions that would-be land buyers might have. He'll even answer questions about land buying during live filming at special events including the Jacksonville Home + Patio Show.

But he’s no mind-reader, so he would love to have your help determining the questions you need answered most. You can submit questions at this link. If he answers your question, we’ll send you a free Rethink:Rural hat!

And don’t forget Rethink:Rural is also here to continue helping you build your country land expertise with our educational articles on buying land, owning land, and why people decide to go rural in the first place.
