Homes in rural areas are much like homes in urban or suburban locations. They may have less access to municipal utilities. A rural home may have its own generator. It is likely to have more yard or garden space and more external storage, such as sheds, additional garage or barn space. Land and materials are often cheaper, so the same amount of money can usually purchase a larger home in a rural area.
