Invested in Texas: Lone Oak Ranch

09/28/2016

Whether they’re living in Australia, California or a high rise in Uptown, buyers looking to invest their money in hard assets have trained their eyes on Texas ranch and land opportunities.

“For the most part, people who are heavy in the stock market feel that a correction is coming,” says David Burgher, whose ancestors arrived in Texas by horseback in the 1840s. “It makes sense to have a portion of their assets in something tangible and take advantage of the rising ranch and land market.  And unlike gold or silver, you, your family and friends can enjoy your investment in the land while it increases in value.”

Contrary to recent reports, the North Texas market is not dependent on buyers coming from the oil and gas business. Instead it is much more diversified and buyers are coming from every industry—auto, insurance, healthcare, technology and more. “There’s an incredible diversity of buyers out there,” says Harlan Ray, himself a third generation Dallasite, “just as there’s an enormous diversity of geography and land options in Texas.”

Today’s land buyers largely fit into two categories. First is the recreational rancher looking for a place to enjoy hunting, fishing and a little “tractor therapy” on the weekends while building lifelong memories with family and friends.  Second is the buyer interested in owning land purely for investment purposes. These buyers interested in long-term land plays are snapping up corn and cotton fields along the north/south arteries, all the way from North Dallas to Oklahoma, betting that they’ll be in the growth path as companies like Toyota and State Farm move people and dollars into the area.

One example of a property that bridges both recreational ranch and land play markets is the Lone Oak Ranch in Farmersville, just northeast of McKinney. The iconic ranch features a spectacular pool/spa/cabana overlooking a five-acre lake and working cow place with more than 1,000 acres of rolling grassland and mature trees. Lone Oak Ranch is listed by Burgher-Ray Ranch Sales

Open Houses: Powerful or Pointless?

09/26/2016
Don't fall for these myths! Here's the truth about open houses...

6436 Curzon Avenue. Open Sunday, 10-2 p.m. Photos / Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty

In the modern, tech-driven world of real estate, holding a traditional open house is a time-tested method of marketing that works. Still, when virtual open houses are available at buyers’ fingertips, sellers find it hard to understand the true value of including an open house in their marketing strategy. Do buyers still come to open houses? Do they sell homes, or just help agents meet prospective clients?

The decision to buy a home is almost always an emotional one. So, while looking online is the first step for most buyers, an in-person viewing is often what seals the deal.

Don’t close your door to potential buyers. We’re busting these common myths with the TRUTH about open houses:

MYTH: Open house attendees are usually just curious neighbors and nothing more.

TRUTH: Neighbors can be one of your best assets and mouthpieces when marketing a home for sale. They are interested in finding a good buyer to be their future neighbor.

3502 Cragmont Avenue. Open Sunday, 2-4 p.m. Listed by Shell Stegall.

MYTH: Open house visitors are not serious buyers. If they were ready and able to make a purchase they would be working with an agent to schedule private tours.

TRUTH: In today’s high-end real estate market, looking is a critical factor in the decision-making process. Many buyers are considering a move if – and only if – they find the perfect place. It can take years before they find a place that piques their interest enough to call their Realtor. Open houses include many of these quiet, yet serious, prospects.

4400 Belclaire Avenue. Open Sunday, 2-4 p.m. Listed by Tessa Mosteller and Lucinda Buford. 

MYTH: At an open house potential buyers are only looking at the home itself. As long as things are clean and tidy, the interior décor makes no difference.

TRUTH: Thoughtful staging is essential for a successful open house. It allows for a lot of traffic in a two-hour time frame…but you only have to prepare once. A professional real estate agent will help you showcase your home in a way that will resonate most with buyers.

4500 Roland Avenue #801. Open Sunday, 2-4 p.m. Listed by Meredith Houston.

MYTH: If an open house doesn’t result in a sale, it was a waste of time.

TRUTH: Open houses are fantastic opportunities to assess potential buyers’ reactions and evaluate your marketing strategies. Even those attending an open house with no intention of buying are a great source of unbiased feedback. A good agent will solicit feedback by encouraging visitors to leave comments, provide suggestions, and ask questions.
