We will arrive in the Springfield, Mo area in a couple of weeks with a couple of cats. Our ultimate goal is a dream house on 40 acres, but we will need to rent a house while we’re looking to buy the house with acreage. Does anyone know a good source for rural rentals? We would prefer the rural areas East or SE of Springfield, but we can rent in Springfield itself if we need to. We have contacted a few realtors in the rural areas and are looking for more sources. Sites like Craigs List and Zillow seem to cover Springfield itself, but not the rural areas. Thanks.

I can't answer the bold typed question because the perceived demand is not enough for someone to offer that service. I don't think there are a lot of 40 acre spreads with houses and/or other amenities in the SW Mo area.

The city of Rogersville has numerous plots with multiple acres and houses farther apart than most. I know of a place in Mt. Vernon, but it has 8 acres. Each small town has a realtor who caters to niche buyers and renter and they'll be more helpful than a city-type agency with more smaller properties.

Thanks Vols44. I should clarify. We are not looking to rent 40 acres, the rental does not need to have any acreage. We would just like to rent a house in a small town in the area- Rogersville, Seymour, Mountain Grove, Ava, etc..

Craigslist is definitely going to be your best bet. Just put in a search term for "Nixa" under the rentals and they will pop up. Other areas to look would be Sparta, Billings, Aurora, Fair Grove, Willard, and Strafford to name a few.

Best of luck.

Some of the major builders in Springfield list properties on their sites. Most are new home for sale. Rentals seem to funnel through Craigs or Zillow. Craigs through private owners is a good option.
