OK, this probably does not exist, but we sure would like to rent something for 3 or 6 or 12 months before we buy since we do not know the area.

However, we have 5 dogs and a cat. Yes, I said 5. 3 are indoor dogs and are very large---Great Danes actually. They are very well behaved, but people tend to overreact to their size...then we have 2 medium sized (Huskies) who are outdoor only dogs and 1 outdoor only cat--assuming there is a barn/shed/garage or somthing for kitty for shelter.

We also have 2 kids in high school, so we can't be too far from a good school.

I have searched relentlessly and found no good rental websites that let you specify acreage requirements and pets allowed. We need at least 2 acres.

Does anyone know where to look or have any ideas?

3-6 months and furnished sure would make things easier for us, but we would consider any number of options and are probably looking to pay no more than $1800/mo for rent.

If we have to buy then we have to buy...but it would seem very rushed for us having never been there before!!!

Thanks!

Edgewood or Moriarty come to mind.

Hi again, Rybert. Thanks for your input. I have been thinking more and more about what you said before about Moriarty being "very white--Mormon"...could you give me a ballpark estimate of how many Mormans are in the area, becuase I fear we might not fit in in that type of community. Or if you feel the entire area is quite religious?

We are not religious and certainly not Mormon. To each his/her own, by all means, but from my experience Mormons tend to stick pretty close to their own and I wonder if the kids will have a hard time fitting in at school if we don't go to church (we get that here is our small, small town and we will welcome more open-mindedness)...any input there?

Thanks, as always!

Oh, there weren't very many (sorry I worded it differently earlier). I'd say 2-3% of the school was... so one had to be careful not to make any off-color jokes about religion at times. The majority of students in Moriarty are from the local farming communities and Edgewood. As Edgewood grows, so will their Mormon population. Religion was never a problem at school. I think the majority were either Catholic, Methodist, or Baptist.

Your kids will not have problems making friends... looking back, it was my mother that took a bit longer than me.

They aren't - unbelievable huh? I'm sure you can guess from my name that I am a realtor. I did a quick search on MLS for rentals and three popped up - these two are brick buildings, the first one is absolutely huge, I can't advertise on here or I would post links.

Bernco...does it say they allow 5 dogs and a cat? 5 BIG dogs?

And how much are the purchase prices? Maybe I can look them up.

Thanks for the help!

We are also looking at homes with acreage that allows large pets (mine is an old, old, lab-mix) but we want to be able to park our slide-in camper close-by. We've found a few on Craigslist.com but you need to search for horses or acreage (more luck with horses as your criteria). We aren't concerned with schools since we don't have kids so... that might be a small hinderance. We are actually heading to Alb this weekend to scope some out.

Most we have found have been in the East Mountains (Tijeras, Edgewood) and South Valley, although we have found a couple in Corrales. Seems you have to move fast on them though or they are gone!

Good luck!
