On today’s show, Paul discusses the differences between buying an existing ranch, or starting from scratch and building your own.
Paul tells us about the advantages, and disadvantages, in both. If you purchase an existing ranch, you can imagine that there are quite a few things that are already built and ready – such as a barn, guest house, animal structures, corrals, orchards, etc. But what you might not realize is that there are other very important things in place, as well – such as underground water, natural gas, and electricity.
The alternative to this, is building a ranch from scratch – purchasing vacant land, designing the ranch of your dreams, and putting it together. This will appeal to some folks who are very particular and have the time, and the means, to see their vision through to fruition – but there is a lot to consider!
Paul shares a great story about a recent client who was looking at ranch land, both small (5 to 10 acre range), and large (over 100 acres). His client wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted, so Paul helped him narrow down his wants & needs, and gave him the pros & cons of buying an existing ranch, as well as starting from scratch.

For the past 17+ years I have specialized in selling country estates and ranches throughout Ventura County CA. This niche stems from my childhood, working long summer days on my grandparent’s citrus and avocado ranch near Santa Paula, just east of Ventura.
I love these types of properties, and it is my desire to help families, individuals and investors from all walks of life achieve their dream of owning a ranch or country estate.
