Published on Saturday, January 02, 2016 by Land Century

Pecos, Texas is located in Reeves County of the Lone Star State. The largest city in the county, the town is situated in the River Valley on the eastern edge of the Chihuahuan desert and on the west bank of the Pecos River. What makes this town so special is that it was named the second-fastest small growing town in the entire country by Forbes 400.

The 2010 census indicates that 8,780 people live in the town. If you are looking for land in this great city, this is the perfect location for ranching, agriculture, and oil and gas production.

The town is organized around the train depot, which links Pecos to the Texas and Pacific Railway. Most railroad-centric towns in the state weren't populated at the time of the railway construction, but this was not the case for Pecos. The small town had a camp of cattle drives along the river even before the trains arrived. After the railway was built, the city grew into a center of commerce, offering:

* Cotton
* Cantaloupes
* Onions

The small city grew dramatically in the 1960s following large-scale sulfur mining that occurred in Culberson County. Unfortunately for the small-town, when the mining production ceased in the 1990s, many of the town’s residents left to find other job opportunities. In total, the city spans 7.3 mi.², with the entirety of the city being land (no bodies of water exist).

Pecos, Texas Demographics

Demographically, we have information from the 2000 census that shows the town’s population has actually shrunk between 2000 and 2010. Most of the shrinking of the population was caused by the sulfur mine closing down. The census does provide some interesting information:

* 1,300 people live in each square mile of the city.
* A total of 3,680 housing units exist in the city.
* 39.9% of all households had at least one child under the age of 18.
* 59% of people residing in the city were married.
* 14.9% of households had a woman at the head of the household with no husband.
* 22.5% all households were non-family households.
* 20.4% of households were single-person households.

The population of the city is very interesting. According to census, the median age in the city is 33 years old. There are more females in the city than males, with a 100 to 93.3 ratio. These numbers worsen for the older generation, with the ratio being 100 to 89 males when the females are 18 years or older.

Median income for households was $24,943. Family median income is $26,375. Females in the city make dramatically less, with an average of $13,874, while the males earn $25,867 on average.

Pecos, Texas Land and Real Estate Information

* 158 acre lot on I-20 off the service road is selling for $360,000.
* A massive 217 acre lot is selling for $162,750.

You can buy a massive amount of acreage in this city for dirt cheap prices. Can you imagine what you could do with 200 acres of land? This is the perfect place to set up a ranch and start earning a lot of money in the process. Known as an agricultural hub, you’ll find plenty of distribution channels and ways to make money off of the land aside from building a home.

And if you're a developer, you can choose to build condos or other structures that can turn a profit. Currently, as of Q4 2015, there are 10 homes for sale in city. Let’s take a quick look at what the sale prices are in the city, and what you'll get for your money:

* You could buy a 1,680 square-foot home on an 8,700 square-foot lot for $59,000. This home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
* A three bedroom and three bathroom, 2,600 ft.² home on a large 19 acre lot that was just built in 2015 is selling for $250,000.
* A home on Iowa Street with three bedrooms and two bathrooms on a 7,000 ft.² lot that was just built in 2015 is selling for $179,000. This home is 1,984 ft.².

There are opportunities everywhere you turn in this great city, and land is an abundance, so you’ll be able to find plenty of properties with massive amounts of acreage. What you do with this acreage will determine your return. Many investors are choosing to hold onto the land and really pay the taxes with the intent of selling it as the city continues to grow.

But, if you’re an active investor and want to make money right away, have the option of renting out a home or becoming a cattle rancher. A lot of these properties are meant for farming or cattle ranching, but farming is limited due to the lack of rain in the summer months.

With a connection to the railroad and being a central hub for our cultural purposes, this is a great choice for any investor and the opportunities are simply unmatched in the region.
