Broker's Comments

In comparison to other ranches in the area, the Tabor Ranch is unique and diverse in the improvements that have been made and the ability to expand or explore other possibilities to develop. I believe it is a well above-average place with features many other “comparable properties” do not possess. When searching for comparable properties to structure a price, the attributes and possibilities the Tabor Ranch offers has made it difficult to fairly assess the property’s value. Replacement cost in terms of the price of land in the area and cost of construction makes this turnkey place hard to compare. 

Learn about the locale

Locale

Located just northwest of Fort Worth in the heart of the cutting horse capital of Texas. Convenient to Weatherford proper on a county maintained paved road. The ever-growing town of Weatherford provides all of the basic needs including hardware, grocery, feed stores, gun stores, a regional hospital, big box stores, chain restaurants, and tons of local dives, entertainment, and restaurant options for a night out. Weatherford’s location has helped maintain an independent identity from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, yet its close proximity to one of the largest urban areas in the lower 48 has directly affected Weatherford as a whole. Locals find themselves able to maintain a rural lifestyle without sacrificing the conveniences and job opportunities of a major metropolitan area. Parker County is traditionally a conservative area with a low unemployment rate and a higher-than-average median income level. 

Climate

In Parker county the July high averages roughly 96 degrees, while the January low temperature is on average 29 degrees. Precipitation consists of 38 inches of rain a year on average, and 1-3 inches of snow in a typical year.

Aesthetic Considerations

A rare find in Parker County for its location, well-rounded opportunities and improvements, and future potential for equity in development opportunities.  

History

Parker County has a long history of its roots bound in western heritage, the horse industry, and everything that surrounds it, including legendary cattle drivers. Oliver Loving, Charles Goodnight, and Bose Ikard are just a few of the iconic cowboys that make up Weatherford's history. "Western" events abound throughout the year. The Goodnight-Loving Festival offers a wide variety of western arts, crafts, and activities, as well as the peach festival and several other community gatherings. Loving and Goodnight were both inspirations for the novel Lonesome Dove written by Larry McMurtry. The Parker County Frontier Days and Sheriff’s Posse Rodeo is one of the largest in Texas and holds true to the western heritage of Texas and the Parker County area specifically. 

Much of the city's commercial and industrial growth is directly related to its location to the metroplex. The city's major commercial and industrial employers find Weatherford attractive, offering the advantages of convenient access to the region's major transportation and shipping infrastructure without the disadvantages of being located within a major urban area.
