Learning everything you can about your new ranch property can be a great investment of your time. One threat to the trees on your property is Oak Wilt. This can be a costly and deadly nemesis among oak trees, especially if left untreated or misdiagnosed. Red oaks can die within a month, while other oaks can take up to six months. Ranches and luxury properties with abundant trees throughout the Texas Hill Country might be susceptible to this tree disease, but an experienced ranch broker should be able to identify potential symptoms and offer advice. Additionally, Texas Forest Service and the International Society of Arboriculture have guidelines to help identify and prevent this disease.

Where's the Texas Real Estate Market Today for Land and Acreage in the Texas Hill Country?
Land purchases have definitely slowed somewhat, but selling prices remain strong with fewer buyers in the market. Land values have always increased over the long term. While the recent recession saw values decrease slightly, values have returned from moderate to strong. Additionally, unlike paper investments that have been known to literally evaporate overnight, land is substantial, it's something you can see, touch and know that it's still there.
While purchasing a ranch in the Texas hill country can be a great investment, one of the better aspects of owning a ranch is the enjoyment you can have compared to other investments. Paper investments don't allow you to sit back and enjoy the tranquility of nature and the outdoors, and don't forget there's fishing, swimming, hunting, hiking, and many other activities that abound for the adventurous spirit.

How's the health of the ranch market in Texas today? It appears to be on a positive upward trend, and according to many brokers and title companies they are busier now than they've been in years. It seems buyers are making their move in all areas of real estate in the Texas Hill Country including single family homes, development tracts, and recreational ranches. Many believe it's an indication that investors and end users now believe that real estate has bottomed and may be on the verge of making upward price moves. In addition, in Texas, there's a lot of new oil and gas wealth due to the recent discoveries and changing technologies that have spurred the industry in places like the Eagle Ford shale.
