A body of water is an asset whose value cannot be overstated on a Texas Ranch. Whether it's used for watering livestock or irrigating fields, you’ll be thankful to have a lake or pond at your disposal. Of course, we’d be lying if we said taking the occasional dip or reeling in the occasional bass or catfish isn’t awfully nice as well.
You could even take things a step further by using your lake to generate revenue. Fish hatcheries have become very lucrative enterprises as seafood is always in demand. Fish meat, roe and caviar are highly sought-after commodities. Not to mention, depending on what kind of livestock you have, the fish can be used as feed, drastically cutting down on your overhead expenses. Another way to monetize your property’s water feature is to charge people to come fish.
With that said, Texas is also home to a wide variety of exotic game animals. For avid hunters, having a water source that attracts deer, elk and sheep is very advantageous.
Even if you have no interest in using your lake for business purposes, there is a lot to be said for just sitting lakeside with a cold drink in your hand, as the day’s accumulated stress begins to fade into the background.
However you decide to make use of the lake on your property, be it for business or pleasure, you’ll be glad you invested in real estate with a water feature. Contact TexasLand today to find out more about ranches with lakes for sale in Texas.
