If a sale and leaseback isn’t for you and you’re simply looking for a straightforward outright sale, Land Commodities may also be a good starting point.
As any farmer will be aware, the availability and enthusiasm of buyers in the farmland market fluctuates from season to season depending on farm profits in the local area. There are good and bad times to sell and the timing might not necessarily coincide with your own requirements. Under those circumstances a normal agent sale at what you might consider a fair price can take longer than you’d like. That’s where we might be able to help.
Don’t forget though: our priority is to serve the interests of our investor clients. You may have heard stories of investment buyers paying more than farmers. You’ll be wasting your time if you think we are one of those sorts of investors. But there needn’t be a conflict between our clients’ interests and yours as long as what you’re looking for is a quick sale at a fair price.
When it comes to buying farms, we like to take a contrarian approach. We generally tend to avoid farms or localities that are currently attracting a lot of buyer interest. We prefer farms where the value might not be so obvious to other buyers: farms with good fundamentals, but which may be underperforming their piers for one reason or another.
Here are some examples of the type of farms you might find us being more interested in than the average buyer:
