Selling your equestrian property

On top of the standard tips of selling a property, there is further advice available for those specifically selling equestrian properties. Try some of these on for size if you’re looking to enhance your equestrian property’s kerb appeal.

Make the necessary fixes

It’s important make any necessary fixes throughout your property. Check each area and ensure you fix or replace anything that may be broken.

Paddock fencing is a key feature of any equestrian property and horses are particularly tough on it, so ensure if it’s suffered any damage ensure this is taken care of. You could even consider rebuilding the fencing altogether to enhance its strength for its next residents.

It might also be worth taking some time to inspect your driveway to make sure it doesn’t have any potholes or bumps; the front of your property is where many buyers draw their first impressions, so make sure it’s smooth. It can be expensive, but it’s a worthy investment to boost your property’s kerb appeal.

Refresh the exterior

Is your property’s exterior beginning to look dated or run down? Then a fresh lick of paint might be in order; this signals to house hunters that you take care of your property and will respect you for it. Replacing outdated fixtures such as switches and light-bulbs will make your property seem more modern as well.

There are also some smaller things you can do to boost your property’s general appeal, including:

  • Ensuring fields have been mucked out – keep the muck areas tidy as well when it comes to viewing day.
  • Sweeping and power washing the yard and stables.
  • Ensure all gateways are secured – horse theft is always a threat.
  • Remove all remaining ragwort with a ragwort fork and dispose of it properly, away from your horses.
