There are many homes on the market right now, and many of them are both for sale and/or rent.

Rent varies from region to region, along with values of homes. You would really need to find several Realtors to get an idea of what's available.

What's generally stressed over here is over the long run, if you ever want to own a home, just go ahead and buy instead of putting that money into rent and never being an owner.

It was often said to me before I finally bought somewhere that if you're going to live somewhere for more than two years you should consider buying. And what you touch upon is that the true cost of a mortgage is less than the monthly payments as some of it goes into equity, which you eventually get back again (house price crashes apart).

If you are still interested in Bowling Green, Ohio, I have an open invitation for you, and for all DS members.

I also belong to a website called http://homesteadingtoday.com

It has many members that share similar thoughts and interests to small holders.

I would invite you all to lurk and join at your leisure.

Once joining, I believe that you could get better answers about Bowling Green, Ohio from someone that most likely actually lives there or relatively close. (Membership numbers are in the thousands.)

Forgot to mention, on the Homesteading Questions forum, many members just ask flat out if anyone can tell about a particular city or area. I believe the most recent ones are about South West Missouri and South Carolina.
