Top of the world views, on the divide between the Yellowstone and Boulder Rivers.
Yellowstone Boulder Divide Ranch - Big Timber - 1260 Acres - $3,100,000
If you have ever wondered what being on top of the world feels like, the Yellowstone-Boulder Divide Ranch can show you just that. Aptly named, the ranch sits on the divide between the Yellowstone River and Boulder River. With breathtaking views of the Crazy & Beartooth Mountain ranges and an elevated view of the Yellowstone River drainage you will never want to leave. Two custom built homes sit on the property allowing for a very comfortable stay for you and your guests. There has been an extensive sagebrush mitigation implemented on the land to increase forage for both cattle and wildlife. Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope and Black Bear are commonly seen on the property. Lease income is generated from a local rancher that is allowed to summer cattle on the property. However, the cattle are taken off around the first part of August to allow the wildlife to settle back into the ranch for the fall. The property could be purchased turnkey including furnishings and equipment. If this kind of solitude and stewardship are what you seek it can be found on the Yellowstone-Boulder divide ranch in the “Last Best Place”.

Agency Disclosure Statement
Following is a Montana law required disclosure: UNDERSTANDING WHOM REAL ESTATE AGENTS REPRESTENT Montana law requires that BUYER’s and SELLER’s be advised about the different types of agency relationships available to them (MCA § 37-51-102 & 37-51-321). A real estate agent is qualified to advise only on real estate matters. As the client or as the customer, please be advised that you have the option of hiring outside professional services on your own behalf (legal and tax counsel, home or building inspectors, accountant, environmental inspectors, range management or agricultural advisors, etc.) at any time during the course of a transaction to obtain additional information to make an informed decision. Each and every agent has obligations to each other party to a transaction no matter whom the agent represents. The various relationships are as follows: SELLER’s Agent: exclusively represents the SELLER (or landlord). This agency relationship is created when a listing is signed by a SELLER/owner and a real estate licensee. The SELLER’s Agent represents the SELLER only and works toward securing an offer in the best interest of the SELLER. The SELLER Agent still has obligations to the BUYER as enumerated herein. BUYER’s Agent: exclusively represents the BUYER (or tenant). This agency relationship is created when a BUYER signs a written BUYER-Broker agreement with a real estate licensee. The BUYER Agent represents the BUYER only, and works towards securing a transaction under the terms and conditions established by the BUYER and the best interest of the BUYER. The BUYER Agent has obligations to the SELLER as enumerated herein. Dual Agent: does not represent the interest of either the BUYER or SELLER exclusively. This agency relationship is created when an agent is the SELLER’s Agent (or subagent) and enters into a BUYER-Broker agreement with the BUYER. This relationship must receive full informed consent by all parties before a “dual-agency” relationship can exist. The “dual agent” does not work exclusively for the SELLER or the BUYER but works for both parties in securing a conclusion to the transaction. If you want an agent to represent you exclusively, do not sign the “Dual Agency Disclosure and Consent” form. Statutory Broker: is a licensee who assists one or more of the parties in a transaction, but does not represent any party as an agent. A licensee is presumed to be acting as a “Statutory Broker” unless they have entered into a listing agreement with the SELLER, a BUYER-Broker agreement with the BUYER, or a dual agency agreement with all parties. In-House SELLER Agent Designate: is a licensee designated by the broker-owner/manager(of the real estate brokerage) to be the exclusive agent for the SELLER for a specific transaction in which the brokerage has the property listed and the BUYER is working directly through the same brokerage also. This agent may not act on behalf of any other member of the transaction and works for the benefit of the SELLER, but still is obligated to the BUYER as any SELLER’s Agent would be. In-House BUYER Agent Designate: is a licensee designated by the broker-owner/manager (of the real estate brokerage) to be the exclusive agent for the BUYER for a specific transaction in which the brokerage has the property listed and the BUYER is working directly through the same brokerage also. This agent may not act on behalf of any other member of the transaction and works for the benefit of the BUYER, but still obligated to the SELLER as any BUYER’s agent would be. Subagent: is an agent of the licensee already acting as an agent for either the SELLER or BUYER. A “SELLER Agent” can offer “sub-agency” to an agent to act on his behalf to show the property and solicit offers from BUYER’s. A “BUYER Agent” can offer “sub-agency” to an agent to act on his behalf to locate and secure certain property meeting the BUYER’s criteria.
