Congratulations to Robert Dullnig (Dullnig Ranches/Kuper Sotheby’s) for his sale this week of 2,181 acres in Maverick County, Texas. This sale occurred on March 6, 2017, and was submitted through our Comparable Sales Program.
Located off U.S. Highway 57 as it makes its way toward Eagle Pass and the Mexican border, Mula Creek Ranch is a low-fenced, free-range hunting ranch in a part of the state known for its big whitetail deer. The ranch offers plentiful vegetation and water to carry a large population of game, which includes deer, turkey, javelina, quail, dove, hogs and other varmints.
Approximately 155 acres of the property was sculpted into mott country for quail and deer. The remainder of the ranch is in native virgin brush, with brush species including guajillo, blackbrush, whitebrush, persimmon, guayacan, grajeno, huisache, mesquite and others. Large elm and hackberry trees can be found along Mula Creek. The ranch has both good subsurface and surface water with large lake potential. There are three water wells located on the ranch.
Most of the ranch is located to the west of Highway 57, while the headquarters for the ranch lies on 70 acres on the east side of the highway. This area consists of an old ranch home, cattle pens and a water well, with potential as a hunting lodge or as remodeled residential living quarters.
Maverick County is mostly wild, untamed brush country in Southwest Texas, its western edge defined by the Rio Grande River and U.S.-Mexico line. The county seat is Eagle Pass, a border town adjacent to Piedras Negras in the Mexican state of Coahuila. The local economy is mostly dependent on petroleum production and agriculture, with most of the farms in the county given over to pastureland. This is reflected in the fact that over 90 percent of ag-sector receipts for Maverick County during the 2012 Census were from livestock sales.
For the week ending March 5, 2017, there were 371 properties listed as sold in the Lands of America Comparable Sales program, representing a total of $89 million in sales value and over 48,000 total acres. Rocky Springs Ranch in northern California was the most expensive sold property ($3.1 million) during the period.
