It's a Lifestyle, Not Just a Hobby
Your Equestrian Real Estate Expert for Nashville and Middle Tennessee
Watching horses grazing peacefully in the pasture outside the back door is for many, a dream come true. But, while the image of rolling hills and white fences is easy to conjure up, finding an equestrian property in the Nashville area can be challenging. Choosing an Equestrian REALTOR to help with your search and purchase is essential. In addition to properties that are on the market, an expert agent may also know about off-market horse farms and equestrian facilities. Be sure to ask.

Why Hire an Equestrian Real Estate Agent?
It is extremely helpful to use a knowledgeable equestrian real estate agent who knows what to look for and what your horses will require. This usually means using a REALTOR® who owns horses and rides and works with them on a regular basis.
If you are a "horse person", then you want your REALTOR ® to locate suitable properties on your behalf. A small 5 acre property, heavily wooded, with a steep slope down the back side, is not what a horse needs. Many properties in our area have unusable acreage and knowing this can save you valuable time.
If you are new to our area, or a Nashville area resident, be sure to take a look at my new All Things Equine Business Directory below. Additionally, you can read my Equestrian blog posts which feature a great article on buying a home with a septic tank, which are common on a farm or property with acreage.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do horse facilities increase property value?
A. Most definitely! By building a barn, adding fencing, a riding arena and fenced pastures, you are creating a property that is desirable to the needs of equestrian home buyers. A turn-key horse property, or also called equestrian property is highly sought after by the horse owners and equestrian riders.
Q. How many acres do I need for a horse in Tennessee?
A. A rule of thumb is to have a minimum of 2 acres per horse to keep your property from becoming overgrazed. This can vary if your horses live in a barn or, if you keep them on pasture 24/7. Also, the topography of the land will be important and how well the land drains during rains. Also, some cities and towns may have their own ordinances, so it is best to verify this.
Q. What Should I look for in a horse farm?
A. There are many factors to consider when choosing the right horse farm in Tennessee. The wrong property can be a headache just as the right property will bring lots of enjoyment. Always consider things like location, water sources, shelter, acreage amount, etc. You may want to request the e-Book, HOW TO PURCHASE THE PERFECT EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY, written by Kim Blanton, the Equestrian Real Estate expert in Nashville and surrounding areas.
