Frank Reichwein has been purchasing land in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado for years in order to ensure a comfortable life for himself and his family. In 1983, Mr. Reichwein set up Reichwein Ranches, a real estate company he runs with his daughter Julie, selling 14,000 pristine acres of land. Frank Reichwein sells properties in 5-acre and 35-acre subdivisions. Located near the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Reichwein Ranches allows customers to buy property through an easy process with low down payments, no hidden or administrative fees, no credit checks, and no prepayment penalties. Some of Frank Reichwein’s properties are sold online at Overstock.com and eBay, and Reichwein Ranches is the only eBay-approved real estate company in Costilla County, Colorado. Property taxes in the area are relatively low, so purchases are a good investment opportunity as well as a source of great personal enjoyment.
Frank Reichwein puts few limitations on the use of the properties he sells. Owners can build their own custom homes but are under no obligation or timeline even to build at all. Upon purchase, owners have immediate use of their property and can camp, use recreational vehicles, and keep animals of their choosing. Most properties use solar power as their energy source. Properties are guaranteed as fit for well permits, good for wells 80 to 120 feet deep, and all well properties use a septic system. The area is perfect for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, big game hunting, cross-country skiing, bird watching, and riding all terrain vehicles. Mr. Reichwein’s properties are especially known for their fishing, which can be enjoyed in the area’s pristine ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers. People come from all around the Mountain West region to catch sizable Rocky Mountain and rainbow trout.
