Is there a market for ready-to-go intentional community setups? (IE, real estate w/ homes & stuff)

So I live in a sorta-intentional community - family members and I bought a bigger piece of land and split it all up. We're starting to contemplate moving. We each have our own individual parcels, homes, etc. Some established permaculture stuff (although we each do our own thing, it's more like we're neighbors who cooperatively share a tractor and work together on some big projects here & there, etc. Like, I have a beginning food forest with a large hugel, my dad put in a giant high tunnel, and my brother's parcel has tons of fenced pasture for cattle, etc. There's actuallt 6 or 7 individual parcels so more homes could be built as well.

ANYWAY

If we all decided to sell (we'd be relocating together, we wouldn't be selling because we don't like living by each other) would it be worth trying to market the property/properties together as kind of a ready-to-go community homestead setup? Just for reference I think the total is 140 acres, three homes (and one of them is set up to where it could be very easily a home w/ separate living quarters for two couples or individuals). If we do want to relocate, it would be ideal if we could sell our houses all at the same time 😂

is all the property and homes owned by 1 person? if so then that would be listed as multi-family on the market, which is what I'm looking for in AR.
and could be advertised as a start to a community.
but if each house/property are owned by separate people the buyer would still have to pay costs/fees on each place?

It could be either - as of right now it is all owned by an LLC we formed to buy in the beginning, and then we all have notes to the LLC for our individual mortgages (which haven't been put on record w/ the county). So really it could be both ways.

If I may ask, why are you moving? Where are you now? Where are you hoping to go?
 
Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
