Recreational and Working Ranches

Recreational and Working Ranch - Carbon County, WY McCarty Land & Water has conducted numerous recreational and working ranch appraisals in recent years. Many of these appraisals have been for purposes of placing conservation easements on properties.

A myriad of issues affect Western ranches. Our company diligently researches these issues. We have studied a variety of factors influencing values, including fishing resources, water rights, land division potential, beetle kill, burned lands, mineral resources and seclusion, among many others.

In order to prepare a well-documented appraisal on a complex recreational ranch, we have to devote considerable time and effort. As a result, fees can often be significant. This is particularly true on conservation easement assignments where determination of the easement-restricted value may involve a considerable amount of regional market research.
