Durham Equestrian Farm for Sale on Old Oxford Hwy

Legacy Equestrian Farm for Sale in Durham


Welcome to the Lyondale Farm in Durham North Carolina!

2810 Old Oxford Hwy DurhamThe Lyondale Farm, a well-known landmark in Durham was formed in 1943 and originally consisted of 650 acres and was part of the Cameron Plantation, which was a land grant from the King of England.  The plantation stretched from what is now Hillsborough to Raleigh with the original plantation home place located 3 miles to the north.

Previous owners and founders Sara and John Lyon, Sr. built a home on the farm in 1945 and began raising registered Hereford cattle for beef and breeding.

The current owner John, Jr. Lyon has many cherished memories from growing up on the farm. “The Hole”, a local swimming place at the Eno River where all the kids congregated and went swimming and fishing during the summer. “Living off the land”, raising vegetables, pigs, cows, and chickens, and horseback riding till sunset are some of his favorites. 

The cattle operation blossomed until the late 60’s until the Falls Lake project began. Due to the expansive land acquisition in the area, it reduced the farm to 44 acres.

With the reduction of land, the cattle operation ceased and was replaced with horse boarding which continued until John,Sr.’s death in 1978.  Sara and the farm manager Durham NC Horse Farm for Sale managed the business until Sara’s death in 2005. At that time John, Jr. returned to his homeplace and has managed the farm since along with his wife, Connie.

There are two homes that remain on the property and the one that fronts Old Oxford Highway is better known as the “Eno Cottage” and was built to house the farm manager and later the family. This home was a popular Air B&B and now a monthly rental. The main home by the ponds was moved to its present location after the land acquisition in the 60’s.

Raleigh NC Land & Lots for Sale

Raleigh NC Land & Lots For Sale: Selling Your Vacant Land in The Piedmont or Land for Sale in Raleigh

To assume that the process of selling a piece of Raleigh NC Land & Lots For Sale is the same as selling a house is to run the risk of underestimating the needs of prospective buyers and losing out on potential sales. The land market is very unique, with its own challenges and characteristics. A knowledgeable professional, however, who understands and specializes in land transactions will be invaluable in the marketing of your Raleigh-area lot, negotiating the transaction, and successfully closing on the sale of your property. Look here for Raleigh NC Land & Lots For Sale.  

Raleigh NC Land and Lots for SaleHow Selling Raleigh Land Differs From the Process of Selling a Home

For those pondering the sale of any real estate without a realtor, the appeal of potentially saving thousands on commissions is a powerful incentive indeed. Selling a vacant piece of land, in particular, often appears to be a very straightforward, uncomplicated process since there is no actual structure involved on the property to show and to play into the price of the property. However, the market for vacant land – from small individual lots to large tracts of land – is actually a very specialized area of real estate, and there are many nuances in the sale of a lot that are likely to escape an individual who is unfamiliar with the process. Click here for Raleigh Horse properties and farms for sale.

It’s helpful to keep in mind a few key points when considering the sale of a piece of vacant land. Who are your potential buyers, for instance, and what is the best way to reach them? What features of a lot are most important to a prospective buyer? And how do selling techniques differ when you’re talking about a market – for land – that is not as active as traditional real estate?

  • Most land buyers are seeking a piece of property in a good location and with the right specifications to develop. Whether the buyer is looking for a small lake lot for a vacation home or a builder interested in developing the land on a much larger scale, they are each looking at the property with an eye to transforming it down the road.
  • Selling, and showing, a piece of land is not as emotional a process as is selling a home. Good or bad, your potential buyer doesn’t have that opportunity to walk through a house and develop a feeling about it which will eventually lead them to make a decision. One way in which a seller can encourage potential buyers to visualize themselves as future property owners is with as detailed a property description as possible and great photos showing the lot’s layout, features, and property lines.
  • The pricing of a vacant piece of land might be trickier than pricing a home, as well. There may be few comparable pieces of property for sale in the area, for instance. If potential buyers are commercial developers, the selling price might be higher than if the land is a single lot. Location, amenities, accessibility and economic conditions may all, too, affect the sales price.
  • Because financing for a vacant lot is often more difficult to obtain than financing for traditional real estate, the option of seller financing is sometimes offered in an effort to motivate potential buyers.
  • Marketing techniques differ substantially when the property is vacant land. A large, visible sign, for instance, that lists all the most pertinent facts about the lot is more effective than a simple “For Sale” sign and a phone number. There are no open houses when it comes to a vacant lot, so online sites – including some that are geared specifically to land transactions – may be useful in advertising the property. Neighbors, too, looking to expand their properties are also sometimes excellent prospects, or even great resources in terms of finding potential buyers.

How can a professional help?

Selling a vacant lot requires the specialized assistance of a knowledgeable local agent: a qualified broker such as Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina. With over 50 years of combined team experience in the central North Carolina area, Legacy Farms can competently handle any Raleigh NC Land & Lots For Sale transaction, which includes finding the answers to the following pertinent questions about your property. Raleigh NC Land and Lots for Sale 2020

  • Are there any details about the land that a buyer would want – or legally need – to know about?
  • What is the history of the property?
  • Does the lot have water access, or hookup for utilities?
  • What are property taxes on a vacant piece of land? Might there be any tax breaks associated with the property?
  • Looking for a land lender? Click here for more info.
  • Click here for specific Raleigh NC Land & Lots For Sale 5-10 acres.

A broker will also answer questions from potential buyers as to how they intend to use the property. If the lot is going to be used as a recreational piece of land or a lot for a future home, what are the area’s amenities? Is there sufficient shopping and entertainment nearby? What about schools? If a prospective buyer’s plans are to develop the land, what sort of infrastructure is in place? is the property accessible, and is it zoned for development? A good broker, too, will be able to make recommendations as to showing the property in its best light, which may involve property clean-up, grass mowing, or removing any run-down or unused structures. If the property has not recently been surveyed, the broker will organize that, and based on the survey and other factors he will determine the best, and most realistic, selling price.

Most importantly, a good broker knows the market and is the best person available to help you make the most informed decisions throughout the selling and negotiation process.

Selling My NC Farm

Selling My NC Farm The decision to sell a family farm is not always an easy one. Sometimes economics drive the decision, but often it is based on complex family dynamics or other real challenges such as a lack of interest or aging family members not being able to handle the physical work of running a farm operation. Whatever the circumstances, finding an experienced farm broker – one who is skilled in negotiation and in the handling of all the pertinent legal and financial issues particular to the sale of farmland – will be imperative in selling.

How can a professional help?

The use of a competent and experienced broker is critical in helping sellers understand the financial considerations and legal processes involved in a farm sale, and in advising the family as to issues that typically affect the sale of a farm. Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina will be able to facilitate a smooth transaction and provide valuable guidance to the family in a variety of areas.  

  • Legacy Farms will be able to determine the value not only of any farms for sale in NC, but of the farm’s assets as well – farm machinery, livestock and buildings – and will be able to discuss options as to handling the sale of those assets.
  • We will be able to explain the effect of water rights, environmental issues, easements and other factors on the value and sales price of the property.
  • We will consider the varying interests of all family members concerned and will be able to put together a marketing plan based on those interests.
  • We will be able to discuss tax implications with you that are unique to the sale of farmland.

Tax Considerations

As with any financial transaction, the risks involved in being unaware of the complex tax implications of a farm sale can be disastrous for a family. Before the For Sale sign is even posted on the property, proper planning should take place so that the family understands all tax-related implications and in the end receives maximum value from the sale.

I.R.S. Section 1031 allows some sellers to defer paying federal and state capital gains taxes by exchanging a property for a “like kind” property. This type of transaction is called a 1031 exchange, like-kind exchange, or “Starker Loophole.” In order to qualify, the farm (or business, or rental property) in question must be an investment property, and the family must immediately turn around and purchase another investment property once it is sold. Farms that are used as a family’s primary residence – for personal use – would not apply. A valid 1031 exchange requires that a replacement property be determined within a month and a half of the sale of the farm, and the closing on the new property must take place within 130 days of that date.

Tips for Success

Most potential buyers want to see proof of how successful the farm operation has been over the past year or years. Sellers who are prepared to present data showing the success of the farm will help the overall process run more smoothly, and both buyer and seller will know right away if the property might be a good match for both. Legacy Farms and Ranches of North Carolina will facilitate this process.

As with the sale of any piece of property, appearance is everything. Keep in mind that within the first few minutes of a potential buyer’s visit, they’ve already formed an impression that will likely be very hard to shift if it is indeed a negative impression. A farm that is organized, clean, in good repair and actually looks like the images posted in its property listing – as appealing as possible, in other words – will show very favorably and more often compared to a property that is obviously neglected or run down.

It’s also important for sellers to be prepared for the emotional toll of selling the farm, and for the possibility that the process may turn out to be more complex than anticipated.

Finally, the process of doing due diligence, even before the decision is made to sell, is everything. What are the statistics – acreage, pumping capacity, value of any timber, etc. – of the property? Is ownership of the farm clear? – who is listed on the Deed to the property? Is the family able to legally sell the property? And, finally, whether the family farm is located in Rolesville, Wake Forest, Louisburg or Raleigh, are there any other farms for sale in the area? How long have they been on the market?
