Now is the time of year when Charlottesville farms are coming on the market. I’m sure that you have heard how important curb appeal is when you are selling a home but don’t forget horse farms need curb appeal too.
Often you don’t even see the home that goes with a horse farm from the road. The first impression that a potential buyer has of your Charlottesville farm for sale may be the entrance and road frontage. It is crucial that the entrance look attractive. You don’t necessarilly need to have big stone pillars, but the entrance does need to be neat and tidy. You may want to dress it up with plants or shrubs, but if you do please remember to keep them watered and trimmed. Also make sure that if you have fencing along the road and driveway that the fencing is in good repair and freshly painted if it is 3 or 4 board. Road banks and the area under the fence will need to be kept trimmed and mowed. In addition any fields should also be kept neatly bushhogged and now is the time to fertilize pasture so that the spring grass will come in green and healthy. Finally if the drive is not paved make sure that it is scraped free of pot holes and has plenty of gravel.
Remember if buyers don’t have a good first impression they may not drive in to see all of the wonderful features of your Charlottesville horse farm. Now is the time to spruce up your farm to ensure that it shows its best face in the spring Charlottesville real estate market!
