Fall Land Market Update

Fall Land Market Update

It’s a great time to be in rock solid New Mexico


In the last couple years, secluded large ranch properties within easy reach of resort and outdoor-oriented recreation areas became the hotter-than-ever commodity. Ranch properties were moving at an unprecedented rate.

Now, even with the current economic and market shifts, these types of properties are still seeing movement. The bottom line is…

Most people consider large productive land a safe place to park your money, and your family.

Productive agricultural land provides steady appreciation paired with low volatility, making it a solid investment in an inflationary environment.

Plus, as the recent economic instability and wavering issues with personal security persist, there may be no better time to be looking at productive properties where you can raise cattle, hunt your own land, raise crops, and provide a safe haven for the family.

Even with celebrity investors like Ted Turner buying into the region, New Mexico ranches are still a best-kept secret with unbeatable incentives, prolific pasturelands, year-round outdoor recreation and activities, and destination urban centers and amenities – all without the high-end price tags to the west.

Opportunities for Cattle Ranchers Now

The Good News: The Livestock Industry is booming, growing, and changing.

“Cattle production is the most important agricultural industry in the United States, consistently accounting for the largest share of total cash receipts for agricultural commodities.” –USDA

While the figures suggest that a cattle ranch investment is a profitable opportunity to play a part as a pillar in the Western economy, there are some recent trends and considerations that also offer new opportunities.

1/ As beef continues to fetch record prices, the increased costs and meatpacking industry are considerations for the small rancher. Enterprising ranchers, and some states, are finding their own avenues such as creating their own packing houses or selling through local/regional avenues.

2/ Demand is continuing to increase for local foods, which can help keep transportation costs down.

3/ The region’s dry, mild climate is ideal for raising cattle, and helps keep operating costs down. The long growing season creates nutrient dense grasses, and it becomes the primary feed source. The natural elements and lifestyle raises quality local cattle, which fetches top dollar.
