Is this worth $500

I am thinking about buying this house and it has two barns with 14 stalls. If I buy it I want to open it to boarders but I don't know what to set the price as I was thinking about 500 a month but is that too much this is what it includes
12 x 12 foot stalls
100 x 200 foot riding ring
4 different pastures with water and trees for shade
Hay, oats, and water
A wash stall with hot and cold water
Barn has matted floor, lights, and automatic fly sprayer
Hooks on stall doors to hang leads and halters
Will brush horse once a week and muck stalls
What would you pay for this service? Is 500 a month too much?
Please reply

Sorry, but in my area, 500 is far too much. I can pay 300 hundred and get all of that plus daily grooming as well as my own private paddock. Generally, if I'm paying 500/month, they are getting worked or trained in some way as well.

Not at all to much in my area (northern california). I pay $575 for a 12x12 stall with a 12x12 paddock attached. My horse is fed hay/alfalfa twice a day grain is extra and his stall is mucked out twice a day. We have 2 arenas one open one partially covered and hot water occasionally when the pipes decide to be nice.
