Hello Janellbrock53, I am sure there should be. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses with down payment and closing cost assistance programs and pay less than rent in Porterville.
Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:
If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Good luck.

Sounds like there needs to be some clear communication about who can do what when. Your lease must comply with the state Landlord Tenant Law. Most will require a landlord to give notice before coming on the property, except for emergency situations.
If you worked out some agreement that allows him access for specific purposes as you describe, but you blocked access, he's going to argue you are in violation of the lease. Having a key for him would avoid the need to cut the lock.
How a judge or jury may find in this situation if you want to take it that far is anybodies guess. If you want to stay there, I'd buy a new chain, give him a key and ask for some notice and respect for your horses.... more
Like others have stated it does should like you would qualify for a loan. First thing I would do if I were you would be to contact a couple lenders and get preapproved.

Once you are okay with monthly payment amount grab a realtor and start looking for houses within your price range.... more
If you are first time home buyers then the first step in the home buying process is to go shopping for a home loan you. Once you find a Lender ,you would fill out an application and submit all the documents that the lender is requesting. They will contact you and let you know if you and your husband qualify for a home, in some cases if you do not qualify at the time you filled out the application to apply for a home loan the lender may give you advice on what you can do in order to get qualifield in the near future. Imortgage has a down payment assistance program for people who qualify. Please feel free to contact me any time if you ever have questions at 661-240-0161.
