Farmland Broker with National Reach

Does Your Company Have a National Reach? Top 50 Questions about Farmland

Hey, it's the Iowa land guy. And here's the top 50 questions that I get asked about farmland. Does your company have a national presence is a question I get asked quite often. And although yes, we do. Um, most of the farms that sell in Iowa, remember it's production agriculture. So the buyers are normally producers and those producers live close to where that location of your farm is typically within about 50 miles of your farm is where most other farmers or landowners will travel. to come buy your farm and be the new producer or new operator for production agriculture. Now does that mean that somebody from New York or Tennessee or Virginia or California is not a buyer on your farm? It totally depends. It totally depends. If you have hunting ground in southern Iowa, Then yes, uh, wholeheartedly, we need a national reach. If it is, uh, middle of the state of Iowa, and it is, uh, square, flat, black, and it's all, uh, production, agriculture, corn and beans, it might have less of an effect, but we want to make sure that we're hitting potential investors. that would have that national reach as well. So, uh, at Whitaker Marketing Group, we, uh, market nationally with every auction, uh, to that group of investors on all the websites, uh, where people would see it nationally as well. So, do you have a national presence? Wholeheartedly. Um, it really depends on your farm of who that buyer might be, but we want to make sure that we hit every buyer type and asset class, uh, when it comes to selling your farm.
