The Formal Room: Pastures
Try to remember that the pasture closest to your home is similar to showing your formal dining room or living room. It may not be the most used room in your house or the most used acre on your farm, but if it's not set up beautifully, it can become a turn off. Often, this piece of property is visible from the road so buyers want to see it looking maintained. Make sure the area is mowed and looks tidy, without dead branches lying around. If you have a fence and some time, consider freshening it up with some new paint!
Setting the Mood
Buying a horse farm is about more than just buying the property's facilities – you're selling a lifestyle. Play the benefits up and create an atmosphere that potential buyers just can't refuse. Highlight the country living, quiet, peaceful life that so many are searching for. Add a small table and chairs overlooking the land, encouraging buyers to picture themselves sipping their morning coffee here. Maybe even consider leaving a couple of cups out there to really give your farm an edge. A little bit of effort goes a long way and adds to the charm of the property.
Master Bedroom or Barn Updates
When it comes to selling your horse farm, your barn or stable is just as important as the master bedroom of a home. Take some time to declutter and organize your blankets, halters, ropes, etc. Additionally, make sure all lights are working and turned on. Clean the stalls, fill in the holes and lay down new wood shavings. This is an inexpensive way to really make your barn look tidy, maintained and fresh.
Don't Forget the Arenas
If you're a championship horse breeder, you're likely to have an arena. Don't forget to tidy this area, as well. Buyers might want to see some barrels, cones or jumps set up, helping them visualize their own horse training.
