Many farmers choose to work with Land Commodities because of the purchase and leaseback arrangements we offer. For farmers who want to stay in the farming business, these sorts of arrangements are significantly more appealing than a forced sale. They can also act as a more economical financing solution than conventional bank finance.
But for a straight forward sale, why would we be different to any other buyer / why wouldn’t you just sell your farm through the normal channels? There are four main reasons:
Let’s be blunt, we’re not saying that you’ll be able to sell to us at a much higher price than you’d get elsewhere. We will of course expect a discount commensurate with any issues that might be making it hard for you to sell your farm. That’s why we’re interested in buying your farm in the first place.
What we are saying, however, is that many farmers in a bad position who try to wait things out till the market improves before selling end up regretting it. Often this can result in their equity position being eroded even further, so even though they get a better price later on down the line, they still walk away with less money.
So if you’re looking for that middle ground between selling too cheaply today or waiting longer than you’d like, please contact our Swiss office on +41 44 20 55 970 or our Australian office on +61 86 22 52 231. You’ll be talking farmer to farmer and, of course, any discussions will be on a strictly confidential basis.
Before getting in touch, please take a look at the geographic and sector focus section of our website to make sure your farm is in one of sectors and regions we focus on.
