Horse Property Specialists Have Horse Sense For
What is a horse property specialist?
A true horse property specialist is a real estate professional that has the knowledge about horse properties and farms. They may be horse and horse property owners themselves. Even if they do not own a horse or a horse property, they have experience with horses and are knowledgeable as to what horses’ needs are.
They are also involved in different horse activities and organizations, plus, are usually well known in the horse community.
Why work with a horse property specialist?
Working with a real estate specialist in the field of horse properties give the Buyer and Seller a big advantage. Since the agent is familiar with horses, as well as knowledgeable about horses, they know what type of properties are suitable for horses and their disciplines. Even if the property is not set up for horses, they know if it may possibly suit the horses’ needs.
Horse property specialists are familiar with the local horse laws and regulations, as well as zoning. They also know the location of tack shops, feed stores, horse trails, show grounds, etc., not to mention local veterinarians, farriers, etc. and horse activities and organizations.
Being horse people themselves, these agents know how to market the property and how a horse person thinks. The properties have maximum exposure not only towards the general consumer, but also the target market. Involvement in horse acitivities and organizations put them constantly in front of consumers that may have an interest in these particular types of properties.
Working with a real estate agent that is a horse property specialist will cut the amount of time the property is on the market (providing that certain criteria are right) and will get the highest possible price for the property. If buying, it will take a shorter amount of time to find the right one.
