Oklahoma is becoming a real estate hotspot

Oklahoma is comprised of 10 separate land regions which I am going to detail below and Oklahoma Realtors are reporting a resurgence in interest in prime Oklahoma Real Estate despite the difficulty the real estate industry is going through at the moment.

Oklahoma, as a whole, is a very fertile plain type of State with few low hills. It is rich in oil and natural gas and has a long history and tradition of cattle herds and ranches, which perhaps helps to explain its attraction as a place to purchase Texas ranches as well as land which can be used to ranch.

Oklahoma, as a whole, is a very fertile plain type of State with few low hills. It is rich in oil and natural gas and has a long history and tradition of cattle herds and ranches, which perhaps helps to explain its attraction as a place to purchase Texas ranches as well as land which can be used to ranch.

The ten geographical regions which make up Oklahoma have a distinct and individual character which often have made many people fall in love with the state and choose to buy an Oklahoma home there.

The Ozark Plateau is in the northeast part of Oklahoma and Oklahoma realtors selling Texas land in that part of the State know that it is an extension of the Missouri and Arkansas landscapes marked by rivers with very steep valley walls, al of which are separated by broad flat areas which are ideal for Texas ranches, recreational Texas land and prime Oklahoma Real Estate.

The Prairie Plains, the name of which is self-explanatory, is found west and south of the Ozark Plateau and is the second of Oklahoma’s land regions. As you’d expect this is prime Texas farm and Texas ranch area with Oklahoma Realtors selling much of the Texas land which comes on the market in this area within a short length of time.

On the border of Arkansas, in the southeastern part of Oklahoma, are the Ouachita Mountains. These sandstone ridges, running east to west, form the roughest land in Oklahoma. Spring-fed streams run through narrow valleys between the ridges. This creates a sense of excitement in terms of the way the Oklahoma landscape hits the new visitor’s eye. Oklahoma Realtors report that fewer ranches and not as much Texas land comes on the market here when compared to the other Oklahoma land regions. Texas land sold in the area is as valuable and capable of giving a good return as a Texas real estate investment as any other Texas land purchased in the State.

In the north central part of Oklahoma, extending south from the Kansas border to the Red River, is the Sandstone Hills Region. The Sandstone Hills are from 250 to 400 feet high. Some are covered with Blackjack and Post Oak forests and Texas land near and around that area has a particularly prime value. Oklahoma Realtors report a quick turnaround on Oklahoma land properties in that area and Texas ranches in Oklahoma enjoy a particular appeal to the average Texas ranch buyer.

The Arbuckle Mountains is the next Oklahoma land region and they comprise an area of about 1,000 square miles in south-central Oklahoma. The low mountains rise about 600 to 700 feet above the plains. Unusual rock formations have been created by erosion in the mountains. The area is used for cattle grazing and, as you’d expect, you can find many Texas ranches there as well as Texas recreational properties.

The next Oklahoma land region to look at are the Wichita Mountains which are found in southwestern Oklahoma and which have formed the backdrop for many a movie featuring Texas and Oklahoma.

The Red River Valley Region, in southern Oklahoma along the Texas land border, is characterized by rolling prairie land and some farm land alongside the now familiar Texas ranches. Some forested hills can also be found in the area. The soil is sandy and fertile and many a Texas recreational property can be found, suitable for the unique Texas all-terrain recreational vehicles we see on the market.

The largest land region in Oklahoma lies to the west of the Sand Hills and they are the Red Beds Plains. This Oklahoma land region stretches from the Kansas border in the north, south through the center of the state. The Red Beds Plains slope upward from east to west. In the east are some forested areas. In the west the region is covered with grass which, as you guess, makes the area prime Texas Real Estate for Texas farm and ranch properties as well as Texas recreational properties.

The next Oklahoma land region are the Gypsum Hills which lie west of the Red Beds Plains and extend north to the High Plains in the northwestern part of Oklahoma. The Gypsum Hills are low (150 to 200 feet) hills capped with 15 to 20 foot layers of gypsum which also gives them their name and distinct visual appeal which makes them almost unique in Texas land. The Gypsum Hills sparkle in the sunlight because of their gypsum content and, because of this, are sometimes called the Glass Hills. Oklahoma Realtors report a resurgence of interest in Texas ranch properties situated in the Gypsum hills Oklahoma land region.

The last, though not least of Oklahoma’s land regions are the High Plains which are found in northwestern Oklahoma and are level grasslands. The High Plains rise from about 2,000 feet above sea level in the east to 4,973 feet above sea level at Black Mesa in the west. This region includes the Oklahoma Panhandle, the strip of land 166 miles long and only 34 miles wide between Colorado and Kansas in the north and Texas in the south. A great number of Texas ranches are to be found in this region and Texas real estate investors often look for Texas properties in this area of Oklahoma.

All in all Oklahoma is shaping up to be a terrific asset of Texas land as a whole offering to Texas real estate buyers, variety, value and a secure investment for the future.
