    Default Need info on western PA farm real estate

    I've looking for websites to do a search for farms, for sale or rent, in the New Castle and surrounding area.... probably up to an hour out. I've checked out LandandFarm.com but they seem to like every area in the state but where I'm looking. No recent lottery win so I'd be looking for something in the 10 - 20 acre range (if that makes a difference).

    Also are there any auction companies that handle farms that I could keep an eye on?

    Thanks for any help

    Here's a local one:

    http://pahorsemall.com/FarmsForSale.html

    They have farms all over the state, but most are from western PA.

    And you can always just try www.realtor.com

    There you can punch in how many beds/baths, acres, etc. Just type in the city you want....and you can decide how many miles out you want from that city.

    Hope this helps!

    Ok the first site is great and I'm going to keep checking it, the second not so good when it comes to farms. So if there isn't much online - any print publications that I could have friends send me?

    I want to get a feel for prices in the different area's so I know where to look job wise as well. Also if anyone can tell me places to avoid and places that you'd recommend....

    .... thanks

    I HIGHLY reccomend Washington County!!! Ok, I admit it's only because I grew up there; actualy from New Castle all the way down the 79 is a great area. I miss living there. Wonderful riding and a good climate (winter can be a bit rough, but nothing if you are from further north ). I hope you find somthing you like. My Aunt is in the New Castle area and loves it there.

    I'm just bringing this back to life because I'd really like the names of newspapers in the area and real estate listing books that I can either have people send me or look up online. The general listings aren't great with farms and I'm not really in a position to go there at the moment.

    Thanks again!

    In Washington county it is the Observer Reporter. Pittsburgh's paper (will cover a good area around the burgh) is the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

    Thanks so much! After posting my plea last night I actually found a couple of decent sites as well as a possible real estate agent in Butler that specializes in horse farms. It at least gave me some good reading to do last night.

    I've found a few good properties in Armstrong county and I may do a drive down there one weekend to find out realistically what kind of a drive I'd have to an area where I have the possibility of a job.

    I do appreciate the feedback. The guys I know down there are well... 'men' and don't see the importance of details.

    How could you leave there? It's so pretty!

    Look very closely at the Pittsburgh paper-lots of big city papers have weekly color ads of real estate, and at least should have classified listings.

    Specialeffects; I never really PLANNED on leaving!! I headed off to college in Ohio, met my now husband and the Marine Corps sent us out west.

    Every time I go home it strikes me how much I miss it there. Of course I do feel really colostrophobic for the first few days, I'm so used to open desert now!

    Desert huh? What we do for men....



    What area are you in? (If you don't mind saying) I lived for a few years a looooooong time ago in Rancho Mirage. Just loved it! It's changed so much now though, I didn't even recognize where I lived.
