Horse Properties In Colorado
It’s well known that today’s real estate market is red hot in Denver and other areas along the Front Range, including horse properties. Inventories are low and demand is high. In the three-county area I serve, a horse property with five acres priced at $500,000 or less will probably sell within two weeks. Properties priced above $500K typically take a bit longer, but if presented and priced correctly, still sell quickly compared to historical time on market averages. I work predominately in Boulder, Weld, and Larimer counties, and am seeing a number of Denver area families moving to the country for a more rural lifestyle, or because they no longer wish to board their horses. There are also a number of out-of-state buyers moving to Colorado due to job opportunities, lifestyle, and great weather – our recent soggy spring notwithstanding. Additionally, historically low mortgage rates greatly increase buying power.
However, just because the market is hot right now, doesn’t mean every property will sell quickly. It takes a number of things to help a property sell, see below for my tips for selling your Colorado horse property.
If you are thinking about purchasing, or selling, horse property, be sure to work with a realtor who has knowledge of your particular needs, and understands horses and horse property. If you decide you would rather board your horses, and wish to purchase a home in town or smaller acreage, I can assist you with that as well. I know the northern Colorado area very well, including the municipal areas.
