The other option for folks looking for horse property in Johnston County is to buy raw land as it’s know with no home or dwelling on it and build your own equestrian facility and home as you like. There are some magnificent equestrian properties that started out as a land purchase and the home owners built their horse facility from the ground up. Raw land means that there are no utilities on the property so there is a lot to consider when buying land in Johnston County or buying land anywhere because each county and township is different. Things like zoning,permits perc tests for septic, power and water all have to be taken care of before you buy. Another factor to consider especially when buying a smaller tract of land is not so much what you’re going to do with the property but what is going to be on the land around you in five or ten years time. If you buy five acres as part of a much larger tract in a rural area what’s to say there won’t be a pig farm or land fill open up next door!
