How Far Do You Go For Your Buyers? I was recently approached by two of my long term buyers. They are both looking for equestrian property for horse farms.

Now of these properties they fall into three categories; Publicly listed farms/land for sale, pocket listings (not public knowledge but I have an agreement that if I have a buyer that wants something like what they have I can bring them out), and last but not least land that is "not for sale (7 comments)

Many are trying to put out some of the fires that are out there. They are insisting on listing the homes for market value. It is a ever changing world out there. We need to stay ahead of the curve.
