Wow! It looks a bit grungy and dark now, but I see loads of potential there. I think the barn would benefit from some fresh paint and better lighting in the walkways. Once it's fixed up, I would board there! Haha. It looks like a really great place for only $800 a month!

You will also want to have your water supply tested, and general inspection of wiring done to make sure it's safe. If you have a bathroom in there have the plumbing checked out. Get a reputable housing inspector out, call your local real estate company and ask for a recommendation. Prices can really vary. My housing inspector is on the pricey side ($300.00 for the place I'm at now, but it's over 3,000 sq ft, it's $200.00 for under 3,000 sq ft and he does the outbuildings free) but he certainly doesn't make much for profit - he has always spent around 6-8 hours inspecting every property I've had him look at, he's VERY thorough. However to inspect just an outbuilding he only charges about $75.00 (not including running a cam to check for termites - you are mainly concrete block so shouldn't have to worry about that). It would be well worth the money to have it checked, so you at least minimize the "surprise fixes" that come up later.

The water is supplied by a well. But we can't afford 800$ on our own and we can't get anyone to go in on the deal with us and split the costs so I think we are going to have to let it go = /

That's too bad, it would have been a nice looking place. And I think that room with no purpose was maybe a foaling stall?

I was thinking it may have been but it was WAAY huge. And it had no gate or anything. It did have a step up to get into the room that was about 6-8 inches high. I believe he said the peopel before used it as a training room for the horses. But I don't see how?

I would have loved the place beyond measures. At the place we have. We have 4 stalls and 8 horses.. we need more space! We don't have a roundpen to work them in or anything and we need more pasture space as well. The only problem with it was distance. It was about 30-45 mins away and as a daily drive to feed that's alot. Plus the 800 a month was pricey as well. Really wish we could have afforded it = /
