Best Places to Live for
Outdoor Enthusiasts Revealed
Share |

July 1, 2009 (Kansas City, MO) – Many Americans dream of owning a property or permanently moving to the country and among the list of benefits that draws them out of the city are the lack of traffic, crime and stress and the feeling of peace and tranquility offered by the country lifestyle.  Additionally, these country getaways offer access to a variety of hunting, fishing and outdoor activities that are the passion of millions of adults and their families.  But with so many options, it’s sometimes hard to know where to begin searching for this dream property.

Outdoor Life magazine recently revealed the 200 Best Places to Live for Sportsmen in the June/July edition, rating towns on criteria including available sporting opportunities and quality of life factors. 
Some of the top locations include Cody, Wyo., Granby, Colo., Heber Springs, Ark. and Booneville, Mo.  And when it comes to finding the perfect property within these areas and others across the U.S.,
outdoor enthusiasts can use the power of the internet.

The only national real estate franchise specializing in these types of properties is United Country Real Estate.  Since 1925, United Country has specialized in recreational and non-urban real estate, helping buyers find their dream properties. Today, the company’s No.1 rated web site provides access to tens
of thousand of properties which can be uniquely searched by property features such as “great deer hunting,” “trout fishing” or any lifestyle feature a buyer desires.  United Country also has 675 offices located in areas with some of the most prized outdoor recreation options available, from big game hunting in Cody, Wyo., to fishing in Granby, Colo. In fact, United Country serves nearly 60 percent of the markets named on Outdoor Life’s list of top towns.

“Outdoorsmen want world-class hunting and fishing, but like everyone else, they also want to have a high quality of life,” said Todd Smith, editor-in-chief of Outdoor Life. “The towns on the list offer the best of the outdoors as well as decent homes, schools and good-paying jobs. They are truly dream towns for sportsmen.”

“United Country has access to the most effective tools for finding a buyer’s dream property and for marketing recreational real estate,” said Mike Duffy, president of United Country Real Estate.  “In addition to our main web site, our company has a specialized web site for recreational properties (http://www.sportsmansdream.net). This site allows visitors to view our vast inventory of lifestyle properties currently for sale in the most desirable areas of the country.”

Additionally, to help new property owners make the most of these properties, United Country has strategic partnerships with organizations such as Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, The American Outdoorsman and John Deere who all specialize in recreational property issues.  This team of recreational real estate experts can provide valuable information about getting the most from these special properties. Topics include wildlife management, easements, property management and more. 

“Adding to the value of United Country’s marketing tools and strategic partnerships is the individual and collective expertise of its brokers, agents and auctioneers, many of whom are avid sportsmen themselves. Because of this, they fully understand the needs and wants of buyers and sellers of recreational real estate,” Duffy said.
