Have you ever thought about buying some land? I’m not talking about a half acre to build a home on. I mean something like 40 acres—or 140 acres—where you can have a little ranch or a hunting property or maybe some kind of commercial enterprise.

Lots of Texans do exactly that. In fact it is becoming more popular. In 2015, there were more than 6,000 purchases of small tracts of land in the state. That’s a 19% increase from 2014.

You can learn more about small-land sales from this infographic.

For anything over 100 acres, find a Realtor with experience in farm and ranch.
