As The Sun Sets on 2018

As the Sun Sets on 2018…

As 2018 comes to a close, it is time for reflection of the past year and to look forward to the goals we have set for 2019.  2018 was a big change for us.  Brenda gave up her 15 year partnership with the other owners of Buy A Farm and then Brad and Brenda joined Keller Williams Marquee. It was a successful move as 2018 brought the Property Peddler Auction and Real Estate Group to life and our new website was born:  PropertyPeddler.com.  Although we have changed names, we still occupy our office in Hecker at the same location.

 

The Keller Williams philosophy of growth and sharing has helped this be a fantastic year. We are so thankful for the opportunities we have had, the clients we have been able to serve, and the people whom we’ve met and who have helped us along the way. [ ]

The Louis Mund Legacy

A Tribute to Louis Mund

“Doing something good is important. It just seems to me that helping kids is a good
cause, and Cardinal Glennon does a lot of great things,” said Lou Mund in a 2002 Glennon
Magazine profile.
Mr. Mund, who passed away on Nov. 13, 2017, was a devoted benefactor of SSM Health
Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital for 34 years as host of the Columbia Golf Classic. Future
generations of children will benefit from his generosity through his planning to bequeath a
portion of his estate to the hospital.
Mr. Mund was quiet, hard-working and successful. He grew up in Dupo, Ill., within sight
of the St. Louis skyline across the Mississippi River. He went to work when he was nine years
old, helping a farmer plant and harvest tomatoes.
During high school he took on mechanical repairs in his parents’ garage and at a farm
implement dealership. Then he was drafted and during the early 1950s he spent [ ]

The Best Memories Are Made On The Farm

 

 

 

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.

The Benefits of a Land Survey

 

 

Although a survey is not required to sell land in Illinois, I would highly recommend it. A survey can help identify and solve problems that an owner did not know existed, but in time may cause issues.  We at Property Peddler see it so often.  Property will be purchased without a survey, then when this property or neighboring ground is sold, issue after issue will arise that were unknown or thought to be resolved when the property was originally purchased.  Some of the more common problems that occur include: not owning as much acreage as once thought, using land that is not rightfully owned due to a poorly written legal description, building encroachment, and easement issues due to a lack of clarity.  For example, an owner could have a 1/4 section of a 1/4 section which in theory should be a square 40 acres, but it could turn out the [ ]
