How Do You Start a Search for a Ranch?
February 2nd, 2016 | by Michelle Eastridge
When you decide to buy a ranch, you’re making a significant investment. One of the first things to consider is whether your ranch will be used primarily as a retreat for your family or for producing income through cattle, mineral rights and hunting leases, for instance. Even if your primary purpose is pleasure vs. business, your ranch should produce enough income to cover maintenance.

You can invest in a ranch for many reasons. You might be drawn to the history of the land, such as with the W.T. Waggoner Ranch, which has operated since 1849. You might want to hunt, raise horses or spend time with family in a beautiful rural setting. Determine your goal first. Then visit possible properties and explore the surrounding towns and attractions – anything that contributes to the character and your enjoyment of the area.
