Why Work With An Equine/Horse/Animal Property Realtor in Buying or Selling?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Benchmark Realty Group

The answer is multi-faceted, both you and the Realtor are talking the same language, and if you interview with an agent who is not knowledgable with information it can cost you time and possibly money. Knowing current market, zoning, deed restrictions, or even amenities are imperative to your transaction.   

  Buyers have specific individual needs and when it comes to their animals, and they are not shy about answering questions. A Realtor with first hand knowledge will know all the questions prospective buyers are asking. You do not need to be educating the Realtor and wasting time looking at property that never fell into your criteria.

  Sellers should be sure details of your property are marketed properly; so potential buyers see all the features the listing offers. Also, you may have spent money on things that could be ignored, and that may cost you in your price. Locations close to trails and parks are a real bonus, along with other information to assist the sale. These details may be overlooked to an unknowledgable agent.  From feed stores to veterinarians, questions will be answered to prospects. Marketing in the agriculture industry is a small key target; please ask about this, you will need special exposure.

Great advice Debbie! There are lot of things to consider when buying or selling a horse property that many real estate agents may not be familiar with. For instance, in my area, many of the horse properties have deed restrictions or CC&Rs limiting the number of horses per property or acre. A real estate agent who is not familiar with horse properties in this area would not know to look for this.

Thank you Bonny,

I have been living and owning horses in the Hudson Valley my entire life. My clients really appreciate

my knowledge, and I love assisting them. I can give people real information about the Real Estate, and

history of my area. Thank you for the positive comment!

Debbie,   Agreed!  Buyers and Sellers of equine properties need an informed Realtor who understands all the needs of the buyers and for listings will know all the major features to market to get the horse farm in front of the right people.
