Texas land is in worldwide demand because of our strong economy and the accompanying corporate relocations. It is a year-round market. The rate on return is currently one of the best investment opportunities.

With falling oil prices, investors are betting it will be an opportune time to buy Texas ranchland, according to a report by the New York Times.
Jay Ellis of Dallas-based Sporting Ranch Capital is raising $100 million from investors to buy “trophy ranches” that owners want to sell “quickly and quietly” – as their personal portfolios fluctuate with the price of oil.

A few days before we sat down last year to celebrate Thanksgiving, I was pleased to host 18 Chinese businessmen and investors in our Dallas office. They were here to discuss the growing global interest in land, particularly Texas farm and ranch land.
A few weeks before, I led a four-member team of international real estate experts on a 12-day, five-city tour of China to meet with Chinese bankers, real estate investors and corporate leaders to spark their interest in North Texas properties. In each city, we found Chinese businessmen, wealthy investors and professionals who have a strong interest in U.S. real estate. They want to buy homes. And they have a strong desire to own Texas ranches, farms and land.
The Chinese are not alone. I’ve made similar trips to Europe and India to discuss the worldwide interest in Texas ranches and farmland, and the Sotheby’s Dubai affiliate recently asked for information on every property Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has access to in Texas because of strong Middle Eastern interest in the Lone Star State.

Lynnwood Farms, at 2802 South Country Club in Dallas, blends the best of both worlds Texas has to offer. A beautiful equestrian farm large enough to stable as many as a dozen horses, it has the feel of a rural setting but is only a few minutes from some of Dallas’ best shopping, restaurants and entertainment. And its seven-bedroom Colonial-style house is a showplace.
Sitting on a ridge overlooking its almost 9 acres, the farm has a 12-stable red barn equipped with a wash rack, hay loft, tack room and lighted riding arena.
