If you are looking for a big horse ranch or a home on acres in one of the cooler inland parts of the Central Coast you will want to start by looking at South County Horse Ranches located in: San Luis Obispo (SLO), Arroyo Grande and Nipomo. These three areas are part of the sixteen cities on the Central Coast that has enough land to support horses or are on large acreage lots.
ALL CENTRAL COAST RANCHES – SOUTH COUNTY RANCHES – NORTH COUNTY RANCHES – COASTAL BEACH RANCHES
If you prefer warmer weather, you will want to look at the North County Ranches and homes on acres, which include Paso Robles, Templeton, Santa Margarita, and Atascadero. You can also find a few much cooler climate Coastal Beach Horse Ranches and beach homes on acres in: Harmony, Cambria, Cayucos, Los Osos, San Simeon, Morro Bay, Harmony and Avila Beach.
The basic rule in SLO county is that you need at least one acre for up to three horses. There are a few ranches for sale with horse facilities on them already, but I have found that folks that love horses, who have built amazing horse facilities, do not move often. When they finally sale their property, they usually to want a lot of money for all of the extras, such as fencing, stables and barns. So, considering the cost is normally in land and the home, it is significantly less expensive to install your own custom horse facility and buy the home for less money, As an extra bonus, it could save save you thousands of dollars in property taxes.
Investment Opportunity – Horse Ranches
You can make thousands of dollars per year boarding horses. Because so many folks own horses on the Central Coast, if you buy a home with a horse facility or install a large enough horse facility that will support a few or even a lot of horses, you can rent out stalls for as much as $600.00 per month.
