Self-Sufficient, Prepper, and Off-Grid Homes
Homes designed for self-sufficient living, for preppers, or for enjoying living off the grid, sometimes rely on alternative energy and enhanced security systems. These properties can be located in remote locations because they don’t rely on being connected to a community electrical system. They often include ample room for supply storage.
Since the pandemic more and more buyers are seeking Self-Sufficient, Prepper, and Off-Grid Homes
Living in a socially distanced environment, away from cities and crowds is trending now, causing an unprecedented housing shortage in small towns.

Finding a home designed for self-sufficient living is getting easier.
