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.


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 left sidebar of our property search tool. If you select “Homes for sale with acreage,” 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.

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 CENTURY 21 Manausa and Associates 1140 Capital Circle SE #12A Tallahassee, FL 32301 (850) 366-8917<– 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!

  63. Jamey Reynolds says:


  64. GENE SCHUR says:

    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.

  141. Steve Wright says:

    Awesome response and interactive blog! I sure hope they get a bundle for it. I am likin’ these guesses.

    • Me too, thanks Steve. The goal was to create some awareness for a great “out of the normal area” home. Considering we’re still not on the market, several hundred flyer downloads is a great start.

  142. my guess $451k

  143. My guess is 1,058,993.

  144. $719,900

  145. Danny Barsness says:


  146. i guess 717,500

  147. Sandra Bourgeois says:

    If I had horses, this would definitely be the home that I would want to live in! Absolutely beautiful!
    This house would sell easily at $450,000.00.

  148. Tashtego says:

    Twenty acres is a lot of land even in a down market. I’d say 950,000.

  149. Greg Einboden says:

    Joe, enter $555K for me!

  150. 565,000

  151. Crystal Bochnia says:


  152. My guess is 695K.

  153. Attempted to back out a price/acre. Then add on the house, barn . . . great financing option. . .unusual property. . . $874,900 Good luck!

  154. Teresa Scudder says:

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

  155. Tom Duffy says:

    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.

  156. $875,000

  157. i guess 890k

  158. 855k

  159. sorry i type wrong email address in my previous comment i guess 855k

  160. Oscar Arenas says:

    If I had the money, I would be glad to buy it for $550K. It sure looks like a beautiful place!

  161. Elaine Herrera says:


  162. Monica Young says:

    oh this is fun :D I say 677K

  163. Marzia Rivera says:

    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

  164. Grace McCurry says:

    I would list it at $997,000. The home sounds beautiful, hope the pool area equals it. Looking forward to seeing pictures! Thanks for the challenge! Monica was right, this was fun!

  165. my guess 880k

  166. 999,000

  167. 356k

  168. I think it’s 752,320

  169. Tony Daniel says:

    I would say $825,000

  170. Dana Cummins says:

    gorgeous property…my guess is $579,000

  171. I would guess $749,500… It is probably worth more, but it is too far out.

  172. Kaleigh C says:


  173. Kaleigh C says:

    On second thought… $370,000?

  174. Kaleigh C says:

    $535,000, perhaps?

  175. Trent Manausa says:


  176. Has the contest ended yet? Who is the winner? It’s been two weeks since you started the contest!y

  177. Has the contest ended yet? Who is the winner? It’s been two weeks since you started the contest!

  183. LEAH GENE GARNER says:


  184. Bonnie Bowen says:

    $615,325 is my price for the house and land.
