How Much is Your Illinois Horse Property Worth?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Corinne Guest, REALTOR® | Barrington Realty Company License: 471.000044

Equestrian properties in Northern Illinois span several counties including Cook, Lake, Kane, Kendall, DuPage, DeKalb, Boone, Grundy, LaSalle, and more to the west and south of Chicago. Illinois is not a small state and it's difficult for us to service everyone so we try to focus on Northern Eastern Illinois, Barrington Hills and Barrington. When is comes to providing valuations of horse property there are several ways property owners can get an idea about valuations.

Zillow Estimates For Horse Property

Many of you know about Zillow and that they'll give you an instant online estimate of your property's worth. There are several reasons not to use this auto valuation method and when it comes to horse property, the biggest is that they have zero idea about the  facilities or extras a horse property has. Zillow will never go searching for horse properties sold in your area, nor do they have any concept of what those facilities cost or are worth. Zero idea! So I implore you never to think you'll get an accurate valuation from Zillow.

Add to that fact, Zillow will also be selling your information now to Realtors. Not Equestrian specialist Realtors, just any Realtor that gives them money on a monthly basis to feed them potential property sellers. Many of these Realtors have never seen a horse, imagine walking through the paddock with some-one who is going to be a frightened of a horse. How can they walk your property and either assess it or sell it? There's a reason I turn up in a barn coat and boots!

Horse Property Specialists in Illinois

While we cannot cover all of our state, we our expanding our coverage area as we got more and more requests to go beyond Barrington and Barrington Hills. For calculating a horse property's value, I would always want to know whether it's a view to selling or just updating your personal understanding of property value. I simply don't have the time to travel a 100 miles for valuations without intent to list and sell. But I am happy always to provide a broad range using comparable sales in the area, of equestrian properties. Our service is free but accuracy maybe be limited without being able to view the property. If you are in the market to sell, a visit to the property is in order.

Corinne, It seems the demand for your expert services is increasing. People need to understand that your time and expertise is most valuable. If they don’t need to sell their horse property then a free Zestimate is all they really need. People want to believe in the deceptive lies many agents will tell just to get a listing … not caring about the seller at all. People really need to wise up or they will be burnt by the desperate and unethical agents.
