Ask Lem: Can I Sell My Ranch
Without Putting it on the Market?
It is a common question I get in my business, “Can I sell my ranch without putting it on the market?”
The short answer is yes.
Many ranchers are very private by nature. They spend most of their time working, either on their land – because they own a “working ranch” with an agricultural operation in place – or working in their non-ag related business that funds their ranch property as a hobby and for recreation.
Often ranch owners are successful executives and entrepreneurs who, when they finally get away from work, want to escape to the peace and serenity of their ranch.
The prospect of strangers violating their private space and impinging on their time is one they would like to avoid if at all possible.
