    Default Good websites for finding farm rentals in NoVa?

    We are looking for a rental property in NoVa. I've been googling around but not finding much as far as farmettes. Any hints?

    Thank you! I just got back from looking at another house here, but I'd like to look at farms too. Appreciate the help!

    Find an realtor that is a farm and/or equine farm specialist, and they should be able to help. Sometimes a pro knows about places even before they go on the market. They might know about something available in an area you hadn't even considered. They might also know about someone who has tried to sell, couldn't get the price they wanted, want to wait for the market to rebound, and will rent for a year or so.

    The best site is one that you have already been given, all of the equine related realtors post on there plus you get all of those who are the actual farm owner. Also check with both Middleburg tack stores, they have bulletin boards in both, hopefully you will get a kind and helpful person answer the phone who will check them for you. Happy hunting!

    Yes, we are. As early as next fall, as late as 20 mos out. In the meantime, I'd like to find a good place for my horse. And we are maybe in the market for another place to live as our current landlords are being douche canoes about stuff. They won't fix the oven and may elect to terminate the lease. We have all sorts of legal recourse but my job right now per DH is to find a new place just in case. I looked at a new townhome today with a realtor but I thought that maybe it would be worthwhile to look at a farmette.

    I've already decided that I'm sending her back to MI when we move overseas. So that's a done deal. Just trying to find something in the meantime. And, on the off chance that DH gets an unaccompanied first tour, I'd like to have something I can enjoy.

    Because I assume you won't be commuting, then I would look in the outlying DC areas around Frederick MD, and south starting at Fredericksburg, VA. I personally like the northern MD DC burbs, because of the metro going up to Gaithersburg/Shady Grove areas, but if he gets an unaccompanied tour you don't have to worry about commuting at all.

    Give a call to Thomas and Talbot Real Estate in Middleburg 540.687.6500. Ask for Cathy Bernache who is wonderfully straight forward and never pushy. Good luck!

    If there is the slightest chance you may want to live in Maryland, try The Equiery, you should be able to find it in local tack stores there like the one in Purcellville, if it is still in business. Online is a little tricky to find the farm listings but they are there.
