Hi there BXMASON.

What's your timeframe? Hard to predict inventory with any degree of certainty so you might feel out a couple of us local pros, find a good fit, and have your buyer's agent help you keep abreast of what's available.

To answer your question - yes. Naturally, with more time to scout, and some flexibility in your date of possession, you should be able to find the right place. It might even be within the city limits.

Do you need to sell property in Manhattan prior to moving out this way?

Give a ring Mon-Sat 8-8 or leave a message after hours if you'd like to chat.

Sorry I am late to respond. I was out showing seven rural properties today. 13 of all the properties I SOLD this year were sold to my buyers. I subscribe to all three MLS's which is essential so you can see every property matching your search criteria. Feel free to us my advanced search criteria website where you can enter the number of acres you are looking for and so on.

I answer my phone, text, email, do electron signings, work weekends, holidays, evenings, etc. to better show you the properties matching your criteria.

I look forward to assisting you!
