There are five ways to succeed in the sale of horses
Okay, I'm not a big horse trader. Damn, I've only ever oversold a fistful of horses in my whole lifetime, but that number is rising. I start to build some trust in my eye: to successfully select a beautiful, rough, young horse, to make it a little to what I imagine, and then sending it to someone else to be enjoyed.
Quick sales: In my hand full of horses I was lucky that some of them were selling like burning warm rolls. We' re speaking of a doze of serious e-mails within a few hrs of the horse being listed and loaded onto a trailers and getting out of the house within a whole weeks. A very big Pino bangs was unnoticed by images and videos.
Well, but remember that I had several other purchasers who were active bidders against each other, who tried to underbid ("They come on Sunday?") and actually fell over themselves to get that axe. Selling it to the first serious purchaser for my asking pricelist, despite the other deals. I' d have liked to keep them, but I made the right economic choice to dispose of them.
I had an e-mail in my mailbox and I had three guys queuing up this weeks to see them. She was the second one to try it, falling in for her ( "It was difficult not to do it!") and buying it without verification at full-priced. Yes, she wanted it so much. I' ve got him on the list at noon and in the evenings I had four serious e-mails and one someone who was willing to set up a check by the end of the year.
More ponies. It' a cheesy bangs, but not a silly one. Jährling was raised, and it was season for him to find a new home to be useful. and I' m not a slayer. The first shopper liked him, but said he was too much vegetation (if you are reading, I said so in the ad).
Several other purchasers approached me, but didn't show up. Took him three month to leave.... not very long, but for a proper, sweet bangs with three people? who wanted a fast and simple sell. Tens of e-mails about them (a bunch of My Little Peony Syndrome sufferers), but it took two month for the shoppers to come to finally try them out.
Then, almost four month after the IPO, came the right purchaser. At first glance he loved me, one weeks probation, basic examination, horse for sale. So what is the buzzword to successful horse sales? We do not have every horse for sale in less than a whole weekend. However you have the opportunity to market horses with more effortlessness if you obey these easy rules.
Begin with horses of good qualitiy, even if this seems so evident. You can always count on it. When the horse is unsuccessful and healthy and has the ability to perform its task, it will be in great demand. Therefore, it is very important for the horse to be in good health. Do not take on a selling perspective just because it is inexpensive and in your budget. Slow horses are losing cash!
Demonstrate the horse of excellent workmanship. Don't be expecting to be a high-powered pet of clumsy iPhone images and videos for sale. Their unusual top plane view is no better than a Craigslist gait horse if your photograph is blurred, has poor illumination or shows the horse in an unfavorable, disproportionately posture. If the horse is $1,000 or $50,000, take an hours to bath and weave it, trimming its trail and lint.
Locate a good place with a gentle backdrop and take a good picture to show this top horse. Free run video of strokes, snorkeling, flagtail, Arabic-looking drilling on the meadow is not a good instrument for advertising..... you can't measure your aisles! You should always include a conformational picture in your ad, but make sure your header or thumnail picture is conspicuous to get the most hits.
Reasonable rate. When you are really motivating to go for sale, ask for a reasonable rate for what the horse is currently valuable, not in 30 working nights. If you really have to go "no", ask yourself, "What would it take to fix you up if he goes into someone's caravan? Consider your horse's position, the horse's ages, education status, temper, height and health.
You will not spend your precious free moment looking at horses that you cannot buy or that are inappropriately expensive. But don't undersell your horse. Occasionally an alert sounds at too low a cost ("This horse should be twice as much! It must be slow or crazy!"). Horsemen are the oldest used vehicle dealers in the world....not the biggest name.
Talk to purchasers to find out what kind of horse they desire/need and assess your horse's capacity to meet these needs. Work with a genuine pole to determine the horse's level and avoid touching where the withers hit your shoulders, breasts, noses or whatever. When your horse has health worries, acknowledge that. A lot of purchasers are sensible and (if the price is right) are accepting a few shortcomings, especially if you are in advance about telling the story of the horse.
In many cases I have a "template" e-mail with information about the horse (including videolinks ) that I copy/paste and mail. "I try to honour the first serious purchaser who comes through instead of selling the horse to the first one to show up with it. I' keep all interested parties "up to date" about the horse's state ( "still for selling, on test, selling etc.).
When I receive up-to-date photographs or videos, I submit them to interested people. Thank each purchaser for his enquiry and wish him the best for his horsehunting. They can even choose to have your horse sent to you by other people. I will also pass on information about other horses for sale that are not mine if I think they fit the purchaser.
It' about bringing horses and the right men together, not getting wealth!
