Answer should be in conditional tense?

In the excersise 'If I could start over' I translated the phrase 'I would buy a house in the country' as 'J'acheterais une maison dans la campagne' and I got the following correction from Kwizbot: 'J'achèterai une maison à la campagne,' I know I didn't get the accent or preposition right, but why is the Kwizbot answer giving the verb in future tense instead of in the present conditional?

This relates to:
