For some, farm life is part of the everyday fiber of the family. For others, it might be where they grew up and would like to get back to and for others, it may have been a favorite place to visit as a child.
These memories are a double-edged sword for those of us in the rural real estate business. Selling the family farm can get sticky, emotional and hard. Arguments arise, and people will often find themselves in what feels like a battle both within themselves and with others. Often times when selling land, they are selling something that has been in the family for quite some time and they have only one shot to make this the best sale possible for their family’s sake. When making this decision, it is important to choose the right agent or auctioneer to help the family through this process.
Memories made on the farm are also where so many of the buyers come from. They long to get back to the farm or in a country setting. They want to have a place to create family memories with their children and grandchildren. People also see it is an investment and cherish the time spent at the farm or on the land. It is fun to have an investment you can truly stand on and watch your family enjoy for many years. — Brenda Chandler
