What to Look for When Buying an Ocala Farm:
Prior to searching for Ocala Farms for Sale, we suggest you create a list of priorities to help us better understand your, and your horses needs. Below is our list of questions and suggestions to help streamline your thought process before we take you on a tour of the Ocala area and available farms for sale.
Prioritize Your Ocala Farm Location
Have you selected a region in Marion County that is located near the right community for your personal needs and wants? Is the proximity to other facilities and events which are appealing or a priority such as The World Equestrian Center (WEC), HITS, the Florida Horse Park, or a Trail System? Is the property close enough to stores, restaurants, schools and other recreational activities in Ocala? Make sure you set your priorities before starting your search!
Determine the Price & Budget of Your Ocala Farm
The Team at Ocala Horse Properties always encourages buyers of land, a farm, an estate or a mini farm to set a realistic budget. Before starting your search, take into consideration the fact that farms require regular upkeep, improvements and maintenance. Get pre-qualified for a mortgage before looking so you know how to realistically move forward with a purchase. An Ocala, FL farm can be an excellent asset in your portfolio; consult your tax advisor to understand the benefits of running a boarding, training or breeding business.
Evaluate the Bones of the Ocala Farm
How solid is the foundation of the structures, house, barn, sheds, fencing, outbuildings, arena or driveway? We don’t want you to be short-sighted if some buildings or infrastructure may need work. Some Ocala farms for sale may have the right backbone for your future vision and may be worthy of some sweat equity towards improvements. In addition to the buildings, you will want to determine if there is ample land or the ability to clear if expansion if needed. Evaluating the topography, vegetation and trees is equally as important when choosing your Ocala Florida horse farm.
What do Your Horses Need in an Ocala Farm?
Is there enough land or acreage for your horses or other farm animals? Is there room to expand turnout if needed? Is an arena a priority or is there enough level land to exercise your horses on natural turf? Is this for personal use (an Ocala hobby farm or Ocala mini-farm) or will you plan to operate a commercial training or breeding operation in Ocala, Florida? Are there any zoning restrictions on your business if you raise horses, cattle, or have plans to be an agricultural grower? It’s important that you ask these questions and the team at Ocala Horse Properties is here to help!
Consider the Potential Upside for Resale of Your Ocala Farm
Estimating the resale value of an Ocala farm is always in the forefront of our minds when showing farms in the greater Ocala, Florida region. Ocala Horse Properties knows which areas are increasing in value and which areas to avoid (and why). It is our responsibility to educate our clientele on the investment variables when buying your Ocala farm. In return we ask that buyers consider their long-term goals and objectives with investing in a Marion County horse farm or ranch. What improvements will drive value? How long do you plan to be in the property and what is your timeline to resale? Is the location well protected from development and positioned for future increase in value? Is the property in the Farmland Preservation area?
