It is possible, however, agree with mitch on the terms. We are actually buying our home with payments of 1444 ( this includes escrow), so it is even possible to find something to buy for just a bit more than what you are paying rent on. Hutto is a great area and we are happy we moved here a year ago from southeast Austin....no regrets here!

Hi Claudette,

It sorta begs the question, what do you have in mind to use the acres for? Like do you want a horse property or just want to enjoy the great wide open? Also what are your minimmum requirements for the structure, Home, Mobile home, manufactured Home? Shared acreage or do you want to straight up farm and mini ranch? It is possible, but what you end up in is really up to you.

Let me know, and I would be happy to send you over a list of possible listings to consider!

Hey Mitch,
We want the great wide open spaces no neighbors too close, farm or mini ranch would be cool but may be too pricey. No mobile homes, no sure about manufactured, we have always lived in a standard home. We have dogs, no other large animals. We both work in property mangement multi family and commercial, so we will be responsible renters! We have a job offer on the south side of Austin, and are considering relocating from Georgia. This could take place as early as June 1.

This will not work for us. We have dogs and do not want neighbors that close. Thank you for your response though!
