When it comes to real estate, you have to live with what you say.
Many people ask us for help locating a farm or analyzing a prospective purchase, and more times than not we must turn our farm analysis or recommendations into action with management after the farm is acquired.
Purchasing a farm is considered a long-term investment and makes up a significant portion of a person’s investment portfolio. Knowledge of the land market in each neighborhood is valuable, and careful study is needed to determine environmental risk, potential capital improvements, long term yield expectations, and neighborhood influences.
Location, location, location is a key phrase for owning real estate. Issues such as proximity to grain markets, livestock facilities, roads, and growth patterns of municipalities must be taken into consideration.
You can be confident that Stalcup’s expert personnel will understand your goals and make a recommendation that fits your needs. After all, chances are we will manage the farm for you and have to live with what we say!
