Different Roles Found On A Ranch

Tax Benefits of Purchasing Land in The Cowboy State
Whether you are in the land market for a working ranch, recreational ranch, second home or personal residence, there are certain criteria that must be considered before you make your decision. We have always heard the old saying location, location, location when it comes to purchasing real estate.
One of the most challenging aspects of selling your land is knowing how to price it. The process of selling land is more often derailed by poor pricing strategy more than any other factor. Pricing land is not an exact science. It is fraught with subjectivity and emotion, and therefore inaccuracy.

Can You Benefit From The Placement Of A Conservation Easement?
It is always surprising to me how few people are familiar with conservation easements and the tax benefits provided. The enabling legislation was first enacted in the early 1980s, and while thousands of easements have been placed since that time, it is still a relatively unknown and/or misunderstood opportunity.
Livestock Grazing: A Tool For Diversity

Selling Your Land: Taxes, Financial Planning & Family Matters
The first and most important step in selling your ranch is making sure your family’s tax and financial planning is current and competently prepared. This is particularly important for multi-generational ranch families. I say this because they are the most likely to neglect this stage.
Selling Your Land: Preparing Your Ranch for Show
As you contemplate selling your ranch, it is important to have an understanding of the process ahead of you, and to prepare your ranch to be as attractive as possible to potential buyers. This often involves cleaning up the junk. Ideally, this begins prior to putting the ranch on the market.
Selling Your Land: Deciding on a Brokerage & Choosing a Broker
