Most ranch owners feel that Wild Horse Ranch is a good opportunity to own a very scenic and very large, yet affordable piece of Wyoming. The unique proximity of this property to Laramie will allow owners to enjoy a country lifestyle while living just minutes away from all the amenities a city has to offer. Some owners plan to make their property into a second home or recreational retreat or getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big cities, while others plan to move to their ranch property after retirement. Many plan to pass it down to their children or grandchildren, while others plan to possibly subdivide the property at a later date, keeping some acreage and selling off the rest. Many of the property owners also plan to utilize the property as a permanent home, particularly given all tax advantages Wyoming has to offer. Wild Horse Ranch is ready for you to build your dream home or just sit back and enjoy the good feeling of land ownership.
Can I Further Subdivide My Property?
In order to subdivide any parcel into one or more parcels of less than 35 acres in size, it is necessary to comply with subdivision laws and obtain approval from Albany County. All property owners must comply with Albany County subdivision and zoning regulations and requests must first be presented to the County Planning Commission for approval. If you have any further questions, please check with the local Albany County Planning Department. Currently, the covenants do not allow for any future divisions below 10 acres in size.
What About Water?
The “water rights” belong to the State of Wyoming, run with the land, and cannot be transferred separately from the property. You are entitled to drill a domestic well on your property at your own cost. Water is not guaranteed to be available at any specific depths, quantity, or quality. Contact a Licensed Wyoming Well driller for further information and proposed costs. You may also wish to haul water or enter into a “shared well” agreement with a neighboring parcel owner.
What About Utilities?
Currently, there is some electric service readily available to some of the parcels on Wild Horse Ranch. However, utility easements have been established throughout the Ranch to allow for the future extension of electricity along the parcel boundaries. Most likely, over time through immediate demand, power will eventually piggyback its way through the ranch. People wanting alternative power can also use propane gas and/or generators for refrigerators, cooking and heating purposes. Solar and wind power technology is also an excellent alternative form of energy. Waste water disposal for all ranch parcels is achieved by individual septic systems. Further information about utilities and who to contact can be provided upon request.
What Is The Property Zoned And What Are The Property Taxes For A Parcel?
The zoning at Wild Horse Ranch is currently Agricultural-Residential. Currently, the approximate annual property taxes on a 40 acre ranch parcel at Wild Horse Ranch calculate to approximately $575 per year.
May I Use The Land While I'm Paying For it And When Do I Receive A Deed To My Property?
Yes, beginning the very day you sign the purchase contract, the land is yours to use and enjoy. When the property is paid in full, the Title Insurance Company will issue the property owner a “free and clear” Warranty Deed, along with a Title Insurance Policy.
Can I Resell My Property In The Future And Make A Profit?
While there is no guarantee of profit from any land sale, history has proven that the prices of all our ranch properties have increased every year. We believe there are many reasons for this upward trend, including inflation, population growth, a decreasing supply of land, the public’s desire for larger space in a more natural environment, a trend toward the movement away from urban areas and the increasing popularity of outdoor recreational activities. We believe the sales prices will continue to increase due to supply and demand for this type of a lifestyle and recreational property.
Is There A Property Owners Association Or Any Restrictions On The Property?
The Developer has established Wild Horse Property Owners Association (WHPOA) in an effort to help protect the natural beauty and to enhance and help protect the future value of all the ranch properties. The Seller/Developer of Wild Horse Ranch has recorded some thoughtful protective guidelines, i.e. Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (C.C. & R.’s), which are readily available for review upon request. The main purpose of the association is to maintain the roads and any common recreational areas within Wild Horse Ranch. Continued maintenance of all the access roads within the development will allow all Property Owners good access to their parcels now and in the future and help to enhance and preserve property values. The Association currently has dues annually of $701 per ranch property. The dues cannot increase more than 10% per year to meet the needs of the Association without a majority vote of all the Property Owners.
Does A Buyer Have To Build A house Within A Certain Time Frame?
A ranch buyer is never obligated to build anything on their ranch property—under any time frame. However, if someone chooses to build a home, there is a time frame once construction begins until completion. This is further outlined within the Protective Covenants.
Why Are Some Properties More Expensive Than Others?
The ranch properties have been priced according to our “A B C” analysis and consideration of the proximity of the parcels to existing electric. “A B C” stands for Access, Beauty and Character. In other words, how good, quick or easy is the access to the property from the main highway or county road. The beauty of the property mainly pertains to the vegetation on the property and the scenic views enjoyed from the property. The character of the property refers mainly to its topography. For example: Is the parcel flat, gently rolling, steep, etc?
How Many Parcels Are Available And How Much Is Still For Sale?
The Ranch offers a total of 370 parcels. However, the exact number of parcels available is changing daily or weekly because the demand continues to be so strong. Currently there is still a good selection of scenic ranch parcels to choose from. We encourage you, for the best selection, to visit the Wild Horse Ranch as soon as possible.
Who Pays The Closing Costs And For Title Insurance?
At this time, the developer/seller is paying all the closing costs as well as the Title Insurance premium. There are absolutely no other hidden or additional costs.
Is There A Penalty For Paying Off My Ranch Property Early?
There is absolutely no prepayment penalty. Your monthly payment is applied to your account balance using simple interest on the unpaid balance. Any and all extra monthly payments will be applied directly to the principal. All extra payments will directly lower your balance, reducing the overall interest you pay on your purchase. You should receive your payment booklet from the title company within 4 to 6 weeks after your purchase.
Can I Make An Offer And What Kinds Of Discounts Are Available?
Offers are not encouraged as the properties are priced for immediate sale under our “No Haggle” pricing policy. There is a 5% discount for all multiple parcel purchases. In addition, we offer Military Discounts of 5% to all active and retired military personnel.
What Is The Least Amount I Can Put Down And How Do I Know I Qualify To Buy?
