No matter what time of the year it is, we always have a demand for equestrian property however there is a particular type with more specific attributes that is perhaps of higher demand. Typically the property would have 5-10 acres with the property itself having a minimum of 3 bedrooms. Why are properties in this category so popular, regardless of the time of marketing? We find there is a larger pool of buyers in the market for them, there are those wishing to upsize from perhaps having no land at all or a couple of acres to those looking to downsize from much larger properties with a lot of land to something much more manageable. Of course there are many factors that determine the value of a property however equestrian properties that fall into the above ‘sweet spot’, tend to have consistent all year high demand often resulting in coming at a premium.

There is no getting away from challenges of marketing an equestrian property in winter however there are benefits of doing so. Buyers searching in winter tend to be more serious than the browsers that can come in the Spring and Summer months. If you decide to sell in winter, we recommend taking extra care in the presentation of your property such as, ensuring fencing is neat and tidy and any walk-through routes that a viewer would take are as orderly as possible.
