I just got a call back on one of the houses I'm really interested in renting. This house sounds SO perfect. It's all hardwood flooring which is better with our dog crew. It's on 162 acres but I think the owner lives on the acreage (they have cows and I think horses) and they have a sectioned off piece of the land with this house on it that they are renting out. They are fine with the animals. I was worried when I talked to the real estate agent that they were going to cringe when I told them we have three dogs and a cat. The real estate agent laughed and said it's definitely fine and that she prefers to work with renters with pets since she does a lot of fostering for rescue and has 6 dogs currently. The property has a pond on it that we can fish on and a detached garage that Josh could totally use as a workshop. Here's the link... you can look through the photos on the right hand side as well. http://www.homes.com/listing/174823843/?zmc=EM-LST-Confirm Cross your fingers, spare some vibes please? I've been searching constantly for rentals in our price range and this sounds exactly like what we've been looking for.
