Does anyone have a story of success from this forum? I used it in 2016 and thought I found a place but things did not turn out too well (nobody's fault but mine for being too eager to get something).

Anyway, I have been watching the board off and on since last year and I see so many ads that remain for a long time and people keep bumping them up so I know that they are not finding what they want.

So, anyone found a good place using this site?

Thanks for any input.

I did. Check the forum often and be ready to go view a property/write a check at a moments notice. Money talks and if they want to show the lease the next day you better be available or someone else might be ready to get it.

Thanks for the report Rex, and the good advice. Would you mind telling me what part of the state the lease you found is in?

We found a good one here. Granted it's a big place and most are looking for smaller tracts. Hang in there it tough for sure to find a good one

Hill country but there are great leases on here all over the place. Just have to find the one that is the right fit. If you are looking for multiple people what I said earlier applies double. I had a group of 4-5 looking a couple years ago. Every time I found a place people dragged their feet, weren't willing to go look, weren't willing to trust my judgement if they didn't go, etc. Finally I went and got on a place as a single.

Found two on here. As stated before, you need to be ready to go look at a place immediately and have cash in hand if it's what you want. Good places at good prices are usually gone in a couple of days.

Lots of trying based upon ads here. A fair amount of gas and time wasted. No success story.

Be very cautious of anything that feels funny, or folks that want to do business with no, or a minimal, written lease. The document needs to be adequate to protect both parties.
