On my Planet, agents that know nothing about horse property would not list it. There, I said it.
Here's a few examples of just one of the problems:
1. I have a buyer looking a large home with a covered arena. I call the listing agent on her foreclosure, and ask what kind of fencing it has, to make sure it is suitable for horses. She is offended that I even ask her about the fencing, and when I start to list of examples, she says "it's metal." What kind of fencing is that? Pipe? No climb? Hot wire? New Zealand? Barb wire? It would have been nice to know what it really was so we didn't drive an hour ONE WAY to waste our time.
2. I call on a listing to find out the size of the covered arena. The listing agent has no idea, but put down the total square footage of the building because that is what was on the tax records. This isn't a house people, the square footage doesn't matter! What matters is the dimensions because different riding disciplines require different sizes of arenas.
When things like this happen, it shows the buyers (in these and other cases, how little you know about horse property) and what you are selling. It also shows other horse property owners how little you know about the horse industry and they should look elsewhere to find someone to market their property when it's time to sell. And let's face it, these agents have no idea how to properly market and point out the features to someone with horses.
So there you go, when you have a special property, say horse property, apartment complex, timber property, a dairy or anything else that has a special feature, find an agent that knows how to market that kind of property. How do you find them? Google of course!
