Currently live in Key West Florida, house is for sale and my wife and I will be shopping for land in the Ozarks area, southern Missouri or northern Arkansas is fine with us, but we might need a realtor since we are not familiar with the details of any given area... Things like drilling a well(how deep and how much), building codes, pine beetles, Internet signal, chigger hotspots... things like that.
It’s easy to look up real estate agents, and I’m sure anybody would take my business, but I need insight that a suburban realtor might not have.
We are shopping for 70 - 120 mostly wooded acres With a pond.
I am currently flying blind and will listen to any advice and or suggestions.
There are realtors that are good at off grid and homesteading, as well as farming and hunting properties. Finding them on the internet is pure luck... Best is if someone gives a personal reference. If you can't get that, search for a land realtor in the county you are interested in, not someone in Branson or Springfield or Bentonville-those guys look at hunting and weekend properties. Ask the realtor about springs and zoning and off grid up front to gauge their suitability.

We moved to Texas county Missouri last year from Oregon and bought 43 acres. If you are interested in this area, I can recommend a realtor, he’d cover a several surrounding counties too. Send me a purple moosage if you want his info.
Also if I can help answer any questions, please let me know.
