Many of the same questions that surface when selling a home apply to selling a farm, except that the possibilities of finding ways to spend money are exponentially greater. However, owners should perform the same cost/benefit calculation: Will this improvement pay for itself and more with an increase in property value? Will it make an otherwise unattractive property salable to an equine buyer? If the answer to either of these questions is no, then it probably is not worth doing.
