Buy property on the Arkansas River

If you want to buy property along the Arkansas River in either Pueblo or Fremont county you aren’t alone!

The Arkansas River

The Arkansas River

It’s purely supply and demand for river front property. And if you just want a river view, you’ll have to wait for that too! Most of the land along the Arkansas River is spoken for either by the State, County or City, even BLM. Large portions of undeveloped land along the Arkansas River are privately owned and have been passed down generation to generation. The land you see along the river that is not developed is probably in conservation, it will never be built on. Periodically you still can buy small properties along the Arkansas River. There are historical homes that go on the market, newer properties and some small acreages. These are all in short supply and therefore demand a LARGE price! If you are looking to buy property on the Arkansas river you should be prepared to move quickly with a CASH offer. Even in today’s economy these properties are in demand. And as always cash is KING!

Check with the resources listed below to see if your insurance will be effected by FEMA and if the property is in a flood plain. Water rights can be sold separately, therefore do not assume you have the right to use the water passing your back door. Check to see if the property has had insurance claims for floods in the past. There are many properties for sale within a short distance to the Arkansas River!

Don’t forget living on the Arkansas river affords you a lovely environment, but it also brings with it wild animals, bugs and drop in guests!

  1. Nice post about water front properties – great resources – we have a lot of homes on the Big Deschutes River here in Central Oregon – but no real lake front property –
