Kenna Real Estate is the Horse Property and Equestrian Property Experts
Our expert equestrian realtors are perfectly placed to help you find your dream Fort Collins Colorado home; with years of experience in selling properties in the local area, we can give you a wealth of local knowledge that will be essential to ensuring that you’ve found the perfect home for you. Whether you’re looking for a large and imposing estate with a long drive, enough stables for a dozen horses, and Olympic-standard show grounds where your horses can be trained and exercised on a daily basis, or simply a small and cozy family ranch with enough room for a pony or two in the backyard, we can help you to find exactly what you’re looking for. The state of Colorado has specific restrictions on the number of horses that an individual homeowner can own depending on the acreage of their land: as a good rule of thumb, responsible horse owners are advised to allow 2.5 acres of land for each horse that they wish to own. When choosing your acreage, as well as thinking about how many horses you would like to house, you should also think about the quality of the grazing land for your animals. If they do not have plentiful access to good quality grasses and other safe non-toxic plants then you will need to supplement their diet with good quality hay and other foods: this is something to consider when choosing a property, as supplementing your horses diet will add an additional expense to your monthly budget.
Choosing the Right Horse-Friendly Home For Your Whole Family
As well as ensuring that the property you have chosen has enough high quality land for your horses, it’s also important to ensure that the property sitting on the land is suitable for the human members of your family. It is very rare that you will find a ranch home that meets your exact criteria both inside and out, so it is important to look at the bigger picture when choosing a home, and think about what upgrades and renovations you are prepared to make, and those that you are not. Adding an extra bedroom or extending a one story home into a two story home, for example, would be a huge and costly undertaking. Upgrading a tired kitchen or bathroom suite would be less costly and would interfere less with the running of your home, so this could be something worth considering to secure what is otherwise the perfect property.
If you have children then it is also worth considering the school district that your property sits in, as well as how you will get your children to school: is your prospective ranch currently on the route for the school bus? Could it be added to this route or will you be responsible for driving them to and from school each day, and is this something it would be easy to add to your schedule? Whilst this might seem like small concerns, thinking about these issues before you move will make your transition to your new home run much more smoothly. Your realtor will be able to help advise you on this and all other local issues, so that you can be sure the equestrian home in Fort Collins that you have chosen really is the perfect home for you.
