If you’re looking for luxury ranchland, a cattle ranch, recreational ranch or hunting ranch, our experts offer some advice. “Once you’re ready to buy, make sure you choose an agent who is experienced in the type of ranch you want,” said Ted Harvey, experienced United Country ranch broker in Wyoming. “A lot of people tend to choose an agent for the wrong reasons. Like it’s your brother or friend, but if they don’t know the ins and outs of ranch,land, it could hurt you in the long run.”

Many ranch experts also say that land is always a good investment. Land investments are generally safer and appreciate more long-term as opposed to the stock market. However, if you’re at the point of retirement or just ready to sell your current operation, make sure you’re doing it the right way. “If you’re selling, make sure you price your property correctly from the beginning instead of chasing the market later. The buyers out there are savvy so it’s better to be competitive than overpriced,” said Dustin Ray, United Country ranch expert in Texas. “Set realistic expectations of the process,” adds Harvey. “The average time it takes to sell from beginning to close is around 18 months. But as always, hire the right agent who really understands ranch land and can guide you through the process.”
