For years, I've wished there was a centralized place where Permie-Folks could search and discuss properties for sale, as well as list Permaculture Properties.
It's sad when I see gorgeous, low- or reasonably-priced real estate listings with natural buildings, solar, rainwater catchment, perennial plantings, etc and think of "regular" homebuyers undoing all our hard work! And when a property adjacent to my 20-yr mature permaculture holding came on the market, I was thinking how cool it would be to have Permies for neighbors.
So I've launched The Permaculture Properties Project
a padlet of properties of interest to permies. (I am not a real estate agent. This is a not-for-profit project).
It covers the US at this point and is divided into columns for 5 regions.

Anyone can post properties of interest. Just double click and add video, PDF, link, description, comments etc. (moderator will approve).
If someone tours a property, they can share helpful comments or insights about the site.
Another benefit is that permies can see the different prices of real estate across varying regions.
There are some very AWESOME properties on the board right now, including a lovely round cordwood masonry home off-grid on 14 secluded acres!
Use keyword search to find items of interest, like "off-grid" or "solar" or "cross-fenced."
