According to a recent CNN NewSource article Suburban McMansions are out. Ritzy, Remote Ranches Are In.

Last year saw more ranches coming onto the market, with a 7% increase in the number of properties over 2017, according to Realtor.com. And prices are rising. Median asking prices for ranches of more than 1,000 acres reached $3.1 million in 2018, up 11% from 2017 — outpacing the rest of the market, which grew by 8%.

Some of these large properties are working ranches with livestock, but more than half of the listings last year mentioned the property’s main purpose was for recreation.
