So I got tired of looking for places to board at...

And finally managed to find a place to rent! We are now the proud renters of a 4 bedroom farm house, on just over 10 acres. The whole place needs some work but will do and the landlords will pay for any fixing we do! 5 stall barn, 2 large run-ins, 5 acre pasture and 3 more acres to be fenced in the coming weeks (posts up just need wire ran), automatic waterers, small hog farrowing barn, corn crib, 5 car garage, rabbit/chicken shack, small milk house... I'm in love! And they said in a year we can sit down and discuss either purchasing the place or doing a rent to own.

The best part? They don't care if I bring in training horses or board horses, there's no additional fee per head or anything...

And now you're all waiting to hear the OUTRAGEOUS rent on this place right? Seeing as how most 3 bedroom houses around my area are nearly $900 a month... well I lucked out, this whole place is only $550 a month though it will entail an hour drive to work each day (which I can totally deal with)!

Keep in mind the pictures are the first day I, and the landlords, saw the place after the prior tenants just up and left with no notice!

Congrats.

That's a very nice place from the pictures, and the lease per month makes it even more amazing.

With that price, it would appear the owners have already paid off the place and just want someone to use it.

Again, congrats.

Like I said, it definetly needs some work but the pasture is big, the fencing is solid, and that's good enough to start! Besides owning a stallion makes boarding a pain so having him at home will be a major load off my shoulders!

Speed Racer: Yes the owner lived in it for nearly 40 years, raised his kids there, etc. then got remarried and the new wife hates the place (imagine that lol) so it's just rental property for now as is her original house from a previous marriage. They keep the rent low since it's basically a "rent it and treat it like it's your own... if it breaks you fix it and just send us the bill!" because they are over 50 miles away. Nearly 60 ppl applied for the house/farm so I'm super excited! We move in end of july!!!

Keep insurance in mind. You will need to have the landlords on the policy since the own the property. It is not inexpensive.

Holy cow, I have to move to Illinois! $900 a month will get you a small one-bedroom apartment here.

Anyway good luck with the place!

$550/month? I rent out my tiny two bedroom condo for $1175/month.

That is INSANE!
