Salem Oregon Horse Property: January 2011

How To Buy Horse Property In Oregon

Looking to Buy Oregon Horse Property this year?

Here is a simple outline to get you started on the right trail to buying horse property in the greater Salem Oregon area.

 

Step #1:   Get your financing in order.  If you are paying cash, obtain a statement of proof of funds.  If you are using a mortgage, get a pre-approval letter from the mortgage lender of your choice.  If you need references to local mortgage brokers (who just happen to be horse people too!), request them by email.  If you need to sell your current city slicker home before being able to purchase your horse property, we need to set a free consultation appointment.  

 

 

Step #2:  Asses your needs, realistically.  What kind of a set up do you need?  

Buying Horse Property in OregonDo you need 10 stalls?  2 Stalls?  Or will a lean-to be sufficient?  Covered arena? Covered trailer parking?  Do you need an existing set up or do you want to construct your own?  How about location. How far are you willing to commute to work or major shopping?  Create a list of "must haves" and "would be nice" features.

 

 

Step #3:  Let's meet!  We need to talk about your needs and what is available on the market, your time frame and options that may work for your needs.  

Step#4:  You select which properties around Salem Oregon and surrounding towns you would like to view.  Just give me the MLS#'s and I will set up the appointments for us.

Step#5:  You choose which place is going to work best for you and your horses.  We discuss the pros and cons of the property an gather as many details as possible for you.

Step#6:  Write the offer!  Once negotiated, escrow is opened and we start the process of inspections, appraisal, repairs, title reports, contingencies and financing requirements.

Step #7:  After closing in escrow, you get to move in!
