173 acres in Williamson County, Texas

Posted on: May 4th, 2018 by Hunt H. Hellums

This property is right in the heart of a lot of growth in Williamson County close to Hutto and Taylor and Round Rock, Texas. It is very close to Coupland, Tx. It is all cultivated farm land. With the widening of roads/highways and realignments of major thoroughfares and with the expanding of utilities in the area, this would be a great long term hold/investment property. The Norman's Crossing area has experienced a lot of growth in the last 3-5 years. It can be divided up into acreage tracts and it is very close to the Toll 130 completed in 2007. It also has good farming revenue for the sellers with gross amounts from the crop adding up to $35K in the last 3-5 years. With the spike in commodity prices lately especially for grain and corn, this is a good place to be with your money making money off of the land like this while it gives you an inflation hedge as well. This is a good one! One of the owners(there are 2 owners) will sell for less than $5,000 an acre 86.565 acres and you can pick which part of it that you want to buy. We recently had a Broker's Price Opinion(BPO) done on it(Sept. 2012) and the value of the whole farm was $4,400 an acre. Both parts of it are equal in value. Please bring offers quickly. Currently leased out for farming right now. This owner will also convey all of their mineral estate with the sale. This is a good buy for income producing farmland in Williamson County. The southern half of the farm(86.565 acres) is sold as of 12/27/2012.

Nice smaller tract of land well located just outside of the town of Red Rock, TX in Bastrop County with power and well will need to be drilled for a home site. It is only 20 minutes to Toll 130 from the tract and would be a great commuter tract for someone with a great vision. Small stock tank on it property and a seasonal creek. Very heavily wooded tract with large neighbors around it. Water wells would be a must here due to an Aqua WSC line not being right at the property. The fencing is mostly in good shape as far as the perimeter fence around it and there are several good home sites on the ranch. A wide variety of vegetation on it with mesquite and cactus and a bunch of large oak trees on it with a wide variety of oaks on it such as Post Oaks and Live Oaks and Elms and also a very few cedar on it down by the creek. It would be a great hunting tract is highly secluded very close to town and seller is more eager to sell it now more than ever before. Mostly all flat terrain with a few areas with up and down.

This property would make a great secluded hunting/fishing tract within an hour and a half of Houston and 45 minutes to an hour from Austin. It has a creek on it and 4 tanks. Great wooded areas with huge cedar and pine trees all over it. It is in Ag. Exempt, and the price does not include minerals currently. Some neat ravenes on it with some gulches and gulleys as well in parts of it. The creek has springs that feed it in spots, and the head(starting point) of the springs may be on the ranch. Minimal improvements on the property with a windmill and well and some holding tanks for water with water troughs. A few small houses and a barn too are there. It is leased out for cattle also. It has been in the same family for over 40 years, and has never been for sale. The access has just been expanded to include a 60 ft. wide prescriptive easement coming from AJ Rod Rd. and going through the son's land into the Dad's land for sale. There is a utility electric line that bisects the property in half. The easement will be improved and recorded based upon receiving an earnest money contract. The price is very reasonable for the area and the county, and seller is motivated to sell due to the drought. He prefers cash/exchanges. Bring your folks fast, this place will not last at this price. Shown by appointment only. All buyers brokers must accompany their clients at every showing if they deire to be included in the commission from the seller at all.
