You have a horse property that you are considering selling. Your agent suggests that you declutter and depersonalize your property.
Yes, yes. You know all about depersonalizing and decluttering your house before putting it on the market. That’s not a problem. But did you know that this also applies to the property, barn and outbuildings on the horse property or farm?
That’s right! Your barn and outbuildings should also be neat and tidy. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. If you went to see a property for $500,000, for example, then it should look like it is worth it. If the barn and outbuildings are disorganized and cluttered, it may look like it is worth $350,000 instead.
Do you think the buyer would think of placing a full price offer on the property with it looking like that? Of course not.
Take a look for yourself.
Which one gives you a better impresssion?
To begin with, the barn should never be cluttered. Clutter can be dangerous to both horse and human, not to mention that items are difficult to find.
So, if you are considering placing your horse property or farm on the market, or even if you are not, get rid of the clutter in the barn and the rest of the property. This will help get top dollar for your property and everyone, humans and horses, will be safe.
