    Might be getting a pasture!

    I've been boarding for almost a year, which is fine and dandy, except I haven't had a barn since I moved.

    I live in a neighborhood, but literally a block from my house is a five acre pasture with a barn and running water that's been for sale for over two years. I called a couple years ago, when I first saw it up, and they were asking $189,000 for it. I scoffed. I couldn't afford that even remotely. It was convenient, but they didn't seem to be budging from that price.

    So now, two years later, my husband and I are living in the same neighborhood and were talking about getting our own house at some point (what with baby on the way). I sighed, and said "I'd be just fine staying here for a while, if I could have the horses closer. And have a barn. I'd love to have a barn." He said "What about that land down the street? I'm sure they've gone down on the price by now."

    I looked it up online, and sure enough they'd knocked $100k off the price, and my husband gave me an even lower number to offer. Fingers crossed that they take it! I'd love to have my babies closer to home-- walking distance, in fact!!!

    I'm just so excited already about it that I had to post. The pasture would need to be cleared, as it's gotten very overgrown in the past couple years, and the fence needs to be repaired before moving the horses over, but still!

    We fell in love with our acreage over 10 years ago before there was even a house on the property. I used to ride through this land when we lived on another acreage about a mile away. Since then we have moved to another province and then back again but to the city. Two years ago the property (now with a house) went up for sale at an astronomical price. We waited and watched the price go down and ended up purchasing it for over 200K below the original asking price. (Know that prices are a little crazy around here still.)

    If a property has been on the market for a while and you can make a nice clean offer with pre-approved financing and few sale conditions, you have a good chance of getting it. I hope your patience pays off! Good Luck!!
