Prepare Your Property Like an Expert
Appearances are everything in real estate. With a little bit of time and expert advice, you can make your property outshine the competition — and attract a qualified buyer faster. Follow our tips to learn how to prepare your farm for the market.
Make All Necessary Repairs
Buyers are willing to pay more for horse farms that are in excellent condition. Before you sell, examine every feature on the property — the barn, fences, the pasture, run-in sheds, etc. Tackle any pressing maintenance issues first, then start on the more minor repairs. If you need recommendations for local service providers, give us a call at 703.966.9480 and we can provide you with a list.
Clean and Declutter
Before your Realtor takes listing photos and before buyers view your property, ensure that the barn is as close to spotless as possible. Sweep cobwebs out of the corners, muck the stalls, neaten up storage areas, and remove all but the essential equipment. The same goes for any other buildings on the property.
Freshen Up the Exterior and Fencing
Once you've tackled the bigger projects associated with selling a horse property, make the finishing touches to truly impress potential buyers. A new coat of paint can work wonders on an older barn and the fences facing the road. If you need any other tips about preparing to sell your horse farm, call us at 703.966.9480.
