Does the Man Above Need a Little Help from eBay These Days?

Serenity Ranch in Evant, Texas is an outstanding religious retreat location and currently on the auction block at eBay.

Religious retreats in Texas are at full capacity year round and currently hard to schedule before the year 2008. With the advent and popular rise of the ACTS community within local Catholic Churches and the Walk to Emmaus movement, it is very difficult to plan a religious outing these days.

JD Cummings a local entrepreneur built the Serenity Ranch in 2000 to offer services for chemically dependent clients. The business lasted for one year and the property has been vacant since.

“When we designed the property we decided to pay tribute to the 12-Step program. There are 12 steps to the chapel. The Round House is 12 sided and the property sits on 12 acres,” says Mr. Cummings.

Today the property sits vacant and is in Turnkey shape for the new owner. This Rural destination resort could be used for conferences by churches, Acts Retreats, Walk to Emmaus Retreats, cities, counties, professional organizations, trade organizations, teachers, photographers, writers, etc.

JD Cummings hired Donald Peters of to help him sell the Serenity Ranch using eBay as a means of reaching the investors looking for this type investment. His motivation is to sell the resort first and the location second. Using traditional real estate methods the location is always the first thing searched on – and not many people have heard about Evant, Texas.

This unknown location is what makes Serenity Ranch a perfect getaway destination. Within a three to four hour drive to Serenity Ranch are three of the four largest cities in Texas (Dallas/ Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio). Other major cities include Waco, Temple, Bryan/College Station, Denton and Abilene. While the exact population of this market area has not been determined, it would exceed nine million people or 43% of the Texas Population.
