Despite what has been a slower agricultural land market the past few years, the dollar amount of land that Farmers National Company is selling for its clients is near record levels. As of October 1, the company and its agents were actively marketing and selling land worth $300 million dollars.
Farmers National Company sells many types of land and it is evident in the current listings for sale. Land being marketed includes good quality tillable cropland of all sizes, recreational land, ranches, pasture land, timber land, rural homes and acreages, and transitional land near urban areas.
The amount of land for sale varies by region and by brokerage. Some areas continue to have less for sale than normal and others are seeing a slight uptick in the amount of land listed for sale. Landowners have been and continue to be making decisions whether to sell now, in early 2021, or to hold onto their land.
Farmers National Company’s near record amount of land for sale by its real estate agents is recognition of being a trusted advisor for those selling land. It starts with the company’s agents who are the local “boots on the ground” with knowledge and expertise in the land market. Regional connections within the company and extensive marketing of the property brings additional potential buyers. Finally, the nationwide presence of Farmers National Company and its marketing efforts attract the interest of both sellers and buyers to the company as the trusted advisor for all things land.
