SUMMARY

Rocking Horse Ranch lends itself to development or possible resale of several portions of the property while retaining others depending on your preference. One could sell or develop the commercial property, sell off the residences, the equestrian area or the homesite development lands. The market value sum of the parts is extensively greater than the asking price and doubling your money is not out of the question. One may choose to retain and live on the property as the values continue to increase due to the growth in the Wickenburg/Morristown markets as well as the continued northerly push of the Phoenix metroplex. The development of the commercial area will produce significant income and the spinoff of home sites will leave the residences and equestrian area with very little overhead making this one of the best real estate plays in Arizona.
