Contest: Win A Free iPad For Closest Guess On Price Of Homes With Acreage

In my attempt to explore every niche in the Tallahassee real estate market, I have found an interesting study surrounding homes with acreage.

Say for example you love horses and would like enough land to board your own horses, how much would you really need? 5 acres? 10 acres? 20 acres? 50 acres?

The price ranges vary so much, that I have decided to have a little contest that anybody can enter, and the winner will be awarded a brand-new iPad!

Win A Free iPad

Win iPad Tallahassee FloridaAt the end of this article is a description and picture (with download-able flyer) of a home on acreage that will be hitting the market next weekend, and I'm not sure where we are going to price it.

The seller would like to move, but he's not going to give the home away (sound familiar?). So here's all you have to do:

In the comments section at the original --> Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, <-- simply enter your name, your email (which will only be used to notify the winner), and the price at which you think the home will sell.

Win A Free Ipad - Guess The Price ... click to tweet

I will shut off entries once the property hits the MLS, so hurry and get your opinion of value recorded today. In case two entries are the same, the one that is entered first will be the only awarded winner. The winner will be awarded the iPad after theTallahassee Realtor Steve Wright sale closes.

UPDATE

Congratulations to Tallahassee Realtor Steve Wright who was the first to forecast a final sales price of $450,000. We closed on the home with acreage on February 8, 2013.

Tallahassee Has Homes With Acreage

I went to the Tallahassee MLS expecting to find many "horse homes," but the fact is there just isn't that many on the market. For most people wanting enough space to board horses, they will be lucky to find the right fit with what is available. They also have to search homes with acreage with the knowledge they might have to add the barn and other facilities for the horses, making this an expensive proposition.

The good news is that Tallahassee does have some homes with acreage, you just have to hunt the right one down. I decided to make an easy link and have added it to the blue footer under popular searhces. If you select "Acreage Homes," you will get all homes on the market that offer one or more acres of land with the home.

While the current housing market is offering buyers a lot of opportunities, it is not so easy when you want something as unique as a "horse house." While barns and the supporting workrooms are not as expensive to build as the main house, the cost is significantly higher than building a house alone.

Homes With Acreage Tallahassee Joe Manausa Real Estate 1140 Capital Circle SE #12A Tallahassee, FL 32301 (850) 366-8917 www.manausa.com

In the real estate graph above, we see a graphic view of all the homes with acreage in Tallahassee (Leon County). The majority of these homes sit on less than 2 acres, and I don't know many horse people looking for something that small.

In fact, most that I have dealt with prefer something well above fifteen acres, and there are only nine homes for sale in Tallahassee that have greater than ten acres, and they are asking more than $600,000 for each home (on average).

Homes With Acreage For Horse Owners

Horse Homes With Acreage Joe Manausa Real Estate 1140 Capital Circle SE #12A Tallahassee, FL 32301 (850) 366-8917 www.manausa.com<-- We have a beautiful home that is getting prepared to enter the market. Take some time to check it out and tell me what you think it will sell for! You can even see a map of the property here --> Map Of Home

This Tallahassee home is sitting on 20 acres, has 5 bedrooms, a sparkling blue pool, a four-stall barn (where you keep the horses ... or lease it out to somebody to reduce your monthly cost of ownership), a guest house, and best of all ... the house is in immaculate condition and looks like it belongs in a Southern Living Magazine.

Did I mention that the seller is willing to offer some creative financing options for qualified buyers? The Seller, not a bank, will determine how "qualified" a buyer is, and since this isn't a short sale, moving the buyer into the home can be easy and quick if needed.

Don't forget to leave a comment below with your opinion of value, and I hope you win!

Any water front? I predict $474,600 more acreage is better but realistically people can adapt to anything and make the most of it. It’s good to economize.

$793,000. And good luck to the sellers.

#146 By Tom Duffy at 7/11/2017 3:47 AM

I'll say $888,000. But I'm not certain that the property is all that great for horses. Based on the aerials and the property appraiser's website, it looks like much of the 20 acres is in woods, rather than pasture, and I didn't see much evidence of horse activity, such as paddocks, round pens, hay bales, a manure pile, shavings for bedding -- or horses, so far as that goes.

With the lack of competition with only two other listings and the beautiful home withe the abundance of land and privacy, I would list at $1,1M. The listing is for the distinguish of buyers with specific desires, your sales price will be at $900K.

PS very creative

#155 By Grace McCurry at 7/11/2017 3:47 AM
