Buy a farmhouse

There are several particularities of farmhouses in Quebec that you should take into account when planning to buy one and we help you better determine them.

Type of operation: Hobby farms in Quebec are often used for various types of agricultural operations, such as livestock, beekeeping, horticulture, etc. It is important to determine if the hobby farm you are considering buying is suitable for the type of operation you are considering.

Location: Quebec has a very varied climate, and the location of the farmhouse can greatly affect its productivity. For example, farmhouses located in southern Quebec tend to have longer growing seasons than those further north.

Property Size: Property size is another important factor to consider. Hobby farms in Quebec vary considerably in size, ranging from a few acres to several hundred. Your choice will depend on your plans and your budget.

Zoning: In Quebec, the zoning of agricultural land is strictly regulated by the Commission de protection du territoire agricole du Québec (CPTAQ). You will need to ensure that you are permitted to use the land for the purposes you intend.

Buildings on the property: Another particularity to consider is the quality and functionality of the buildings on the property. This includes houses, barns, sheds, etc.

Natural Resources: Some farmhouses may have access to natural resources such as water sources, forests for firewood, pastures for cattle, etc.

 

Access and infrastructure: Finally, consider the accessibility of the farmhouse. Is it easily accessible all year round? Are there well-maintained roads? What about utilities such as electricity and water?

 

These peculiarities can greatly affect the value of a farmhouse and its suitability for your specific plans. As part of our mandate, we work with rural real estate experts to help you in the process of buying your farmhouse.
