They will be able to guide you to properties that meet your needs so you don't waste your time.
In this case, your Realtor will have easy access to HOA rules and regulations and CC&Rs.
The Meadows likely has restrictions in keeping with their effort to maintain an exclusive aura - though such regulations may conflict with Santa Clara County right-to-farm ordinances. The Meadows, by the way, is almost certainly outside the Gilroy city limits though it has a Gilroy zip code.
For this price range you have a lot of choice including some fantastic homes with land, views, animal facilities and more.
You can see several Realtors are anxious to work with you (as I would be) if you don't have someone now.
If you need someone to specifically make some calls on your behalf concerning the Meadows, please let me know.
Good luck ... Wayne
I would get together with a Local agent who is very familiar with Gilroy and the zoning for animals. ( You would need a good sized lot in any case.)

If you really want chickens and goats you will need a home with larger lot. There are several homes in San Martin, Gilroy and North San Benito County where you can have animals. Why not text, e-mail or call me. I'll be happy to provide you with a list of them.
