I'm seriously looking into the financials of a ranch in Alberta... If the annual income is good enough, any bank would be stupid not to give me a loan to buy the place. If you are from Alberta, I'm sure you've heard of it... hell, I knew what it was before I found it for sale... it's the Q-Ranch. 75000+ acres of ranch for $18.8 million Canadian, or ~$15 million US. With 950 Cow/Calf pairs, I could pay off the loan in about 18 years, and it looks like it would make one hell of a hunting/fishing/trapping outfit property. Anyway... I'm wondering if any of you Cannuckistanians would be willing to head over to the ranch and ask for the financial information for me. I need to know the basics, price per tillable acre, price per developed acre, acreage of the lake, leased and deeded acreage, annual income, USDA Status (I know it's in Canada, but it's possible) annual taxes, etc.... If it looks good, I might go to the bank... Oh yeah... here's the link to the ranch... and contact info for the seller. I'd call myself, but I think he'd rather see the person he's givng the paperwork to... http://www.landandfarm.com/lf/s/63/75645.asp You borrow $180,000, the bank owns you... you borrow $18,000,000, you own the bank.
