West Texas Land for Sale: Where is the Property Located?
Marty Robbins famously sang about the “West Texas town of El Paso” in his 1959 Grammy-award winning country ballad, “El Paso.” That song became a national touchstone, putting El Paso, TX on the cultural map. El Paso is as far west as west Texas gets. Along with our neighbors in Juarez, Mexico and Las Cruces, New Mexico, we make up the largest bilingual and binational workforce in the Western Hemisphere.
This region, known as the Paso Del Norte, is home to over 2.7 million people. That may seem like a large number, but El Paso is part of the second largest state in the USA, after all. This means one thing: we have a lot of properties on this side of the Lone Star State for you to choose from. From off-the-grid living, recreation land, and ranches for sale in West Texas, we can help you pick the perfect place to call home.
The West Texas Climate
El Paso, Texas is located right in the heart of the Chihuahuan Desert. With an elevation of 3,700 feet, El Paso is comfortable. The climate can be what you would expect from a desert environment. Two mountain ranges cover the desert on the east and the west, blocking moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean. This doesn’t mean that the area is bone dry all year long, however. The rainy season manifests in the summer months, during late June and lasting all the way to early October. Smaller amounts of precipitation follow in the early winter as well. This means that the climate in this area runs like clockwork. You can look forward to the rainy season and experience the unmistakable scent of petrichor, that pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.
Information About the Area
