Even though a large portion of farms, ranches or land is sold (without using a Realtor) to a neighbor or kept in the family! Neighbors often are not willing to pay the current market price and make a low offer. This was the case with dad’s farm when he finally retired. Dad finally decided to list his farm and was successful in getting top dollar for his land and home.One Common Sense tip is; Unless it is vacant land DO NOT place a FOR SALE sign on your property! You have already informed your neighbors the farm or ranch is FOR SALE! You do not want a FOR SALE sign in front of your operational farm or ranch! The average person driving by DOES NOT have the money or credit line available to purchase your operational farm or ranch. The benefit Realtors have in selling property is our Multiple Listing Service (MLS) plus the internet in marketing your farm, ranch or land!If you experience difficulty in locating additional land or an operational farm in Missouri give us a call! On the other hand if you are considering selling whether it is the complete farm, ranch or only liquidating some acreage, give us a call.
