4 Most overlooked questions When buying a Charlottesville horse farm.


When one wishes to buy a horse farm, a checklist of wants and needs always comes useful. But sometimes, just like when shopping for a home, there are details a buyer fails to check when choosing the best horse farm for sale in Charlottesville which later on leads to regret. To avoid this from happening to you, consider these 4 items when you look for the most ideal horse farm.

4 Most Overlooked Questions When Buying a Charlottesville Horse Farm by Pam Dent, Real Estate Agent in Charlottesville VA

  1. How do you get in and out of the place?

Depending on your purpose for having a horse farm and horses, the need to take your horses outside may vary. But in any case, you must make sure that access to your property is easy. Try to evaluate if you think there would be a problem getting horses in and out of your property, and what you can do about it before looking at another possible property.

  1. What are the neighboring establishments?

Horses would do well in an environment close to their natural habitat. So as much as possible, their homes must be free from possible sources of stress and distraction. Having establishments nearby could affect your horses as well as your day to day operations. The noise and waste of a factory could affect your horses negatively. On the other hand, having stores nearby where you can purchase plants or fertilizers can be of great help.

Be sure to have a short drive around to help you inspect things better. Moreover, work with a real estate agent who knows not just Charlottesville horse farms for sale but also the whole neighborhood really well.

  1. Are there potential hazards for horses?

Horse care is tremendously important if you want your business to flourish. But sometimes, sources of danger are just around the corner. Certain weeds, like ragwort, can be really harmful for horses. Thus, inspecting your target property is a must in order to uncover possible accidents waiting to happen.

  1. Does it have enough stables?

Having stables in the horse farm you will purchase will save you a great amount of money, time and effort. You wouldn’t need to ask for building permit if ever. So include enough stables in the items you will be checking when you go to www.jumpintogreenerpastures.com to shop for horse farms.

It is easy to focus on your major criteria like land area and price when looking for your dream Charlottesville horse farm for sale. In reality though, there are a lot more considerations you must not fail to remember so you are sure that regret would be out of the question afterwards. Be sure to work with a professional agent who has years of experience in the industry so that these things would be carefully inspected before you invest your hard earned money.
