Remember though that you are not adding significant value through the remodeling.
In addition to what you have already done I would help stage your home for photos. Staging your home and staging for photos are slightly different. Professional photography will enhance all the attributes of your property and staging will present your home at its best.
An inspection will also help. When a buyer makes an offer you will want that offer made on the basis of full disclosure whether you choose to make the repairs or not. This action will most likely prevent a buyer from trying to renegotiate price during the Option Period (when the buyer is performing their own inspections). Yes, the buyer will probably want to get their own inspection, but we use the highest level of inspectors (there are 3 levels) to assist you.
Good marketing techniques also help your property stand out. I do a market profile of potential buyers and then skew the marketing to attract those buyers. We put your property on 30+ targeted websites - websites where other websites pull data from, thus scattering your info to a multitude of sites. I target buyers from our database looking for farm and ranch properties; equestrian centers where people with horses frequent; magazines that promote farm and ranch properties; other realtors who also sell farm and ranch properties.

Best of luck.
Staging and photo's are very important as well as pricing your home right from the start.
I just sold a home on 5 acres up off of 281 and it went much faster than we thought!
Do you have a Realtor you are working with? I have a background in Land Survey, Banking and grew up in the area so if I can assist you just let me know.
I have professional photos done, do virtual tours and always answer my phone if it's possible or
I call folks right back. That is so important when working with clients and other agents to get a home sold quickly.

Updated kitchens and bathrooms can make all the difference. Although for a horse lover, nice stalls and a sparkeling tack room might be the thing to send a buyer over the top. There are other horse lovers out there looking for the right home.
I am curious, it has been two years since you posted the question, do you still have this property for sale or have you decided to remain in Leander?

Please let me know when you decide to sell. I have a buyer looking for a home. They need horse facilities.
That is great that you have added a stall. Flooring is always a good upgrade as well as the kitchen. Bathrooms are also one of the best places to put your money. New neutral paint always helps as well as an outside covered deck area. If you have not had a market analysis done yet, you should have a Realtor do one for you, before you spend too much on the upgrades.

There are clients for properties in Leander with good acreage, Can you have more than one horse in your 11 acres, also I really want to find out if you can divide your land. I recently sold a 5 acre property in Leander and they can have up to 2 horses, so we make sure featured the horses in our marketing plan. So a horse lover bougth the property (cash deal). We staged the house and showed beautiful. You do not need to upgrade the whole house in order to sell it, sometimes just some repairs are OK.
If you need some help, just call me.

Updating the bathrooms might be a good idea but I recommend that you get a professional REALTOR out to help you make that decision before you spend money that is unnecessary. My clients feel that I have helped save them money with getting their houses ready for sale. Location and condition are two very important aspects; but pricing is the key in this market.
Give me a call, and I can come with my team to give you expert advice.

b) hardwood flooring, tile
d) clean carpet
e) Pack up all move out furniture makes the home look bigger
A house without hardwood floors will be less likely to sale, whether it's a $50K townhome or a luxury home, these are only a few items that make a house marketable. GOOD LUCK
