What It’s Like To Buy A BC Ranch With Us

We’re Personal

At Cascadia Realty, we’ll take the time to get to know you and your reasons for buying a ranch. You’re a unique individual or business with unique wants and needs. It’s our commitment to find ranches that will best align with the priorities you have. Once we find a few ranches that fit your specific needs, we’ll present them to you. Simply put, we’re here to help you succeed in your real estate journey. We want to be considered as a trusted real estate advisor to you and your family or your business. Most of our clients are repeat buyers or sellers because we work hard to make you our #1 priority every time you buy or sell with us.

We’re Progressive

There are key strategies you need to consider when you’re buying a ranch in BC. These strategies are based on your personal requirements and long-term goals for buying a ranch here. There are many kinds of ranches for sale in BC — some of them as small as 70 to 100 acres, while others may stretch for miles in any given direction. The properties you’ll consider depend on the type of ranch you envision. And that hinges on the lifestyle you’re seeking. They can range from large commercial operations to smaller hobby-style ranching. For us, they’re both very appealing. We personally own a recreational ranch property ourselves with horses that we still ride. Whatever your intentions might be, contact us to assess the vast opportunity that exists for becoming a BC ranch owner.

This is very important to think about too. Some ranchers rely on family members and a hired hand or two. As we’re sure you’re aware, animals require constant care and feeding. Mornings on a ranch can come early and the days often don’t end until the chores are done. But there are many rewards: Ask anyone who knows about “life in the saddle.” But you don’t have to do everything yourself. You can also enjoy the benefits of ranch ownership on a part-time or occasional basis with the assistance of a full-time manager. We can help find this individual. And it’s possible to embark on another kind of business venture by operating a guest ranch that offers trail rides or an “agri-tourism” bed and breakfast that is similar to a working vacation experience for guests. We can help with this too!

We understand the unique BC market, and we are fully aware of the potential upsides and pitfalls of buying a ranch in BC. We will help you navigate the “terrain” by learning about your needs, guiding you to ask the right questions, evaluate future potential, secure financing, minimize risk and maximize your investment dollars.

Speaking of investment… initial financial investment is, of course, the purchase price of the land and cost of the land and any existing improvements – buildings, fencing and infrastructure. As with any business property, you should also factor in ongoing expenses for maintenance and upkeep, utility costs and expenditures for insurance and security. You’ll also want to consider access and topography. Paved roads, gravel paths and dirt trails can all exist on ranch property, and there also might be creeks and streams, craggy areas and gullies that will affect how the land can be utilized. We can help you understand what you’re getting into. Even if this is an area of expertise for you, an experienced second opinion never hurts.

We’re Connected

Our team works closely with other real estate firms, partnering with an extensive network of specialists in the BC ranch vertical. We also bring decades of experience in high-net-worth real estate to the table. This includes a long list of previous buyers and sellers as well as a list of vetted candidates to purchase any ranch we list. Our network is global and significant. In addition to this, we have access to private and exclusive ranch real estate listings that don’t see the light of the full BC real estate market. Getting access to these gems requires knowing well-connected individuals and real estate teams who specialize in ranch properties.

We’ll Do Your Due Diligence

Whether you view yourself as a cowboy or a contemporary business person might impact the type of land you buy and what your ranch will ultimately become. Only one thing is certain. You shouldn’t buy ranch property on a whim. Consult with experts and arm yourself with facts. Running cattle and riding horses can become your reality, but that’s not the total picture.

Discuss your options not only with other ranchers and with your family, but also enlist the services of knowledgeable real estate professionals who have comprehensive knowledge. We’ll do your due diligence – looking at things like land values, the viability of the land for ranching, weather considerations and ecosystems, local zoning and land restrictions, future development plans, taxes and pending legislation are all pertinent topics to explore.

We’re Experienced

We have over 50 years of cumulative real estate experience. We’ve represented buyers and sellers for a significant portion of the ranches that have been bought and sold in the BC real estate listings market. Many of the buyers and sellers we represent are not from BC – it’s quite often they’re from another province or territory in Canada. We’ve worked with many clients from the USA. We’ve also worked with  international clients from countries like Greece, Russia, China, Germany, Britain, Spain, Australia & more.

We’re Full Time

This seems like it’s not necessary to say, but it is. Representing buyers and sellers of BC real estate is all we do. There’s many real estate agents that have their license but might not be full-time real estate agents. We do this full time. There are no other businesses that we run in the background. This isn’t a side gig. We know what we’re good at and have become experts in many facets of the BC real estate market. The only properties we tend to represent are vacant acreage, ranches, waterfront properties, fishing lodges & hunting properties and hobby farms. All this to say, we’re here for you around the clock, representing you to the world in Pacific Standard Time 🙂

* Full Disclosure: There is one thing that distracts us from our full time real estate careers – we founded and run a pretty amazing charity called the Scholarship Foundation Of The Pacific. “The Scholarship Foundation of the Pacific is a public foundation whose goal is to raise and steward funds and develop strategic partnerships to support post secondary educational opportunities to create future leaders in coastal communities.” In short, we raise enough funds to send one student for 4 years of university every year. Have a look!
