Colorado Land Auctions
What is a Land Auction?
Private land in the Western states is often bought and sold through the process of a land auction. Unlike real estate common to what most people experience, choice pieces of land for farming and ranching are bought and sold at auction. A big reason for this is to encourage competition and to help the previous landowner get a good price for their land. The better the land, the higher the value will be, driven by a free market economy. Auctions can happen for a variety of other reasons as well, especially if a bank has taken possession of the land due to defaulted loans, or if there are no parties left to inherit a piece of property. Either way, the price a piece of land fetches at auction is a better estimation of its value than what someone could just slap a price tag on. Auctions mean that land is priced to sell and rather than arguing over the asking price, your competition is other buyers who have a good idea at what they are getting.
Benefits of a Colorado Land Auction
Sometimes an auction can work in the buyer’s favor. That is always a risk you take when selling your land at auction. However, simple improvements can be made on a property to drastically improve its worth.
Auctions typically begin with a starting bid. Starting too high can mean that a seller has some lofty aspirations for their CO ranch for sale, but it might not do very well at auction. Auctions allow you to gauge based on the intensity of bidding just what the potential of this land might be. The bidding continues until no one can compete with the highest bid, and the sale is awarded to them.
Owning Your Own Colorado Ranch
For many, owning your own ranch is the closest thing to Heaven you might ever imagine. There’s almost no more honest or rewarding job in the world than ranching. You pit your wits and resources against the elements and a lot of people with some skills and ambition can stand to make a lot of money ranching. It gets you back to basics and returns you to nature, in the same spirit that the Pioneers looked at an unworked piece of land and could see nothing but possibilities.
