Yesterday I was searching the mls for Virginia horse farms for sale to email to a client, but how can I sell your farm if I can't tell it's a horse property. And how can I tell it's a horse property if the agent doesn't put the equestrian details in the listing information.
The first thing that struck me was how hard it was to sort out the true horse farms from the other properties with acreage. The equestrian amenities were ofter burried somewhere in the agent notes after all of the details on the house. One listing didn't even mention that it had a barn until I looked at the additional media and "voila" there was a picture of a 9 stall barn.
If you are selling a Virginia equestrian property, it is important to hire a Realtor who understands the importance of the horse facilities to horse people. They will want to know the size of the barn, how many stalls, kind of fencing and whether there is a ring. That information needs to be at the beginning of the notes, even before the information on the home. After all the true horse person will want to make sure that his horses are happy and then if that is perfect he will often try to make the house work.
Remember that if you list your Virginia horse farm for sale, I need to be able to find it among all the other listings so that I can put it in my tour to show my clients. Please make sure that it is easy to see on the listing that it is a horse property in order that it does not get overlooked as I scroll through all of the properties that are currently on the market.
