If you want to live off-grid and you have the ready cash, there are off-grid environment-friendly houses for sale out
there. But they are hard to mortgage. You may need to buy them outright. Here’s where to find them on the internet:

The Earthship website lists off-grid houses built according to the Earthship biotecture principles: out of recycled tyres and cans.

The environmental directory EcoBusinessLinks has a list of real estate locators and houses for sale across the USA.

HealthyHomesforSale is a website dedicated to finding, buying and selling eco-friendly off-grid homes.

If you don’t want to build your house yourself, a fun and cheaper option could be to buy an old derelict off-grid building and do it up.

Flagstaff, AZ USA

This beautiful Flagstaff self-sufficient style home is for sale by owner for someone with a desire for fresh mountain air, relaxed living, homesteading, and a bit more independence to be able to raise their own food and provide for their own energy needs while still having all available utilities. Built in 1994, this home has 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, a green room for your indoor plants, fireplace with gas insert, attached 2 car garage, root cellar and private Jacuzzi/relaxing area.
This property is 2.51 acres square, has room to park everything, has several independent 6’ wood and chain-link fenced areas for privacy, micro-climates and animals (approx. 1500 feet of fencing) and a total of 9 building including the following: two detached green houses with a very large garden, one garden shed, one horse/goat shelter and one chicken/turkey shelter with independent pens, solar power and a small tack shed for indoor storage, our camping gear shed 10×12 ft, the work shop 16×20 with work benches & electrical, one detached 24×24 building with water, electrical, sewer and a new unused wood cooking stove (could easy be converted to an apartment). This place has been designed to be self-sufficient with 44 solar panels that produce over 10,000 watts of electricity (that is enough for almost two homes) never pay for electricity again. You could be completely off the grid with minimum conversion if needed.
We produce almost all our own food by raising chickens, turkeys, ducks, miniature cattle, horses, bees, and rabbits for food and cold fertilizer. We grow enough food in the green houses, fruit trees and berry bushes for a minimum of six months every year. If you put in a small underground green house you could easily grow food year round. Our property also has a 40×80 foot pond that is filled with the run-off from two buildings through diverter valves from the gutters. The house also has a full system of gutters and valves that can fill and maintain 21-55 gallon drums for the garden or drinking in case of emergency (distill all water first). The pond is used for watering the garden.
The entire property is hooked to Doney Park water and has a bunch of well established trees and berry bushes of all kinds through the above ground water system. For gas you have two options, we prefer propane and buy it once a year, or if you like natural gas you could have the gas company run a line in to your meter, their main line is at the front of the driveway.
If you’re looking for a home that is out of the city, away from the smog, noise, pollution, trash, and gangs where you can live the life you have always dreamed of than this is what you want! Flagstaff is a great low crime beautiful college town in Northern Arizona with no radiation problems. We are close to everything that nature has to provide including a 360 degree view of the Doney Park, Mount Eldon, Sunset Crater and the San Francisco Peaks.

The Grand Canyon, Sedona, Payson, Jerome, Prescott, Petrified National Forest, hiking, skiing, bicycle riding, horseback riding, caving, boating, fishing, rock hounding, hunting, etc… the list is endless! If you want we can even provide some wood, furniture, and a secure future for the right price. Call or contact Robert for a personal tour. No real-estate agents please. Price $499,000 Call Robert at 928-699-2127
