Consider How Much Space You Need

Aerial image of Farm and Ranch Properties in West Texas - Ekdahl Nelson. Real EstateRanch and farm land requires some serious acreage to fulfill your dreams. However, there are also hobby farms and ranchettes to choose from. Make sure the space aligns with your long-term goals. For example, if you want to hunt, ranch, ATV, horseback ride, and grow crops, you’ll probably need a few hundred acres to make the most of your ideal lifestyle. But if you’re interested in building out your lifestyle over time and are looking at your land as more of a hobby to nurture, a few dozen acres is probably suitable for your needs. Talk to the team at Ekdahl Nelson Real Estate to assess your goals, think through your options, and come up with options that work for you.

Think About the Terrain

Terrain can make or break your choice of farm and ranch properties. If you plan to hunt white-tailed deer, you’ll need some shrubby brush and varied terrain to attract your favorite game. However, you’ll need suitable terrain to raise cattle and grow crops as you expand your ranch. ATV enthusiasts also appreciate hilly and rocky areas to make their pastime more challenging. Make sure your ranch can accommodate all of your goals with enough room to roam and good irrigation and rain collection methods to help nurture your land.

Look for Proven Soil Quality

It’s difficult to grow the kind of crops you want when the soil quality is substandard. The team at Ekdahl Nelson Real Estate can help determine the soil quality or request more information and testing. Investing in land that already has a proven track record for successfully growing crops can also make the experience easier. Even if you don’t plan to do much farming, good soil quality is key. It makes it easier to grow the kind of vegetation and foliage your cattle and game need, as well as enhances the ROI of farm and ranch properties. If you ever sell your property, you’ll enhance your sales price with high-quality, rich soil.

Think About Turnkey or Building from the Ground-Up

What do you want your life to look like when you move onto your ranch or farm? Moving in and working the soil, building a barn, repairing a hunting workshop, and mending fences is a dream for some people who prefer a homesteading kind of lifestyle. But if you want to move onto your property and start living a life of luxury, you need something turnkey with all the modern conveniences. From your ranch home to deer stands and livestock pens, make sure any farm or ranch properties reflect the kind of lifestyle you want to live.

Assess Monetization Potential

Texas Hunting Land - Ekdahl Nelson Real EstateEveryone has different goals for their farm and ranch properties. You’ll need a roomy property with potential if you want to move in right away and raise a family while entertaining friends. But if you want to monetize your land, you need to look at it through a different lens. You may want to rent out an expansive property for hunting groups or rent an area of your land to a farmer.

The choice is yours, but needs the right approach to ensure any farm and ranch properties align with your ideas for monetization. Contact the team at Ekdahl Nelson Real Estate to discuss your goals and we’ll walk you through the process of finding the right property for you.
