A Checklist for Buying A Granbury Farm or Ranch Property for the First Time
Visit the land in person
This may seem like a standard for purchasing a farm or ranch property, but there are some who purchase real estate sight unseen as long as the listing checks off all of the wants and needs. In some cases, however, it is hard to tell if the photos provided in a listing are the most current and accurate representation of the property.
Make sure you know about the zoning and terrain
If you are purchasing a large property in Granbury Texas that is not yet made for the use of ranching or farming you want to make sure that you can legally pursue the goals you have for land use by making sure the specific property is zoned for this type of use.
You also want to make a note of the terrain as to whether the land is smooth, whether it drains properly, whether it is rocky, where the sun shines or where there are overly shady areas, and if it will be productive and successful. Even if a piece of land is zoned for your hopeful use if half of it is usable it could be a lot of work to get it in the condition that you hope to use it for. Make sure there are no giant unusable parts of the property if you plan to use every square inch for ranching or farming.
Make sure you are knowledgeable about water rights
Due to several areas having a lack of water in the midsouth and southwest, it’s good to make sure that you know what your specific water rights are for your property. Even if you purchase a property right along the river or another body of water. You want to make sure you know how often you can water if you plan to plant. It is still possible to make ranch or farm plans for land that is more dryland friendly, but it will take some more planning and options will become more limited.
Know how the land was previously used
Knowing the former use of a ranch or farm that is all set up and ready to go will help you to create a future plan for the land. If there are acres and acres of alfalfa and you hope to have grazing grounds for cattle for example you will need to replant.
Have the outbuildings checked
Many times ranch and farm properties will already have outbuildings on them and it is very important to have these checked out for their safety just as you would with the main home on the property.
Check the corners
Make sure that you look over every inch of the property and discover if there are any large and seemingly broken-down items that will need to be removed. It is not uncommon for previous owners to leave something that has been hiding in the back corner of a barn for the next owner to dispose of. It is good to seek out if there are any of these items tucked away on the property before your final purchase to negotiate the removal of these items before you take ownership and take on the extra cost and at the time of removing them.
