Purchasing farmland can be a smart investment
A famous old real estate chestnut attributed to Mark Twain urges investors to “buy land – they’re not making it anymore.” While the wisdom of the advice as a blanket statement may be open to question, its basic premise that land is in limited supply is obviously true – and certainly so for agricultural property. This type of acreage, while typically costing less per acre than developed land, has historically tended to offer better-than-inflation returns and a good way to diversify a portfolio and protect against market volatility. Buying farmland is becoming an increasingly popular avenue of investment, especially among those who aim to develop the land for residential or commercial use.
We’ve been handling farm properties since our beginnings
Right from its beginnings, the Schueler Group of companies has handled farm properties; in fact, we were founded in Lebanon, Ohio in 1935 as a farm brokerage. One of the most noteworthy deals ever brokered by our founder, George Henkle was the sale of 1,500 acres of arable land which is now the home of the Kings Island amusement and water park. We understand the tax and other legal implications involved in agricultural land deals, and can help you assess the potential of a site as income property or for commercial development.
Let us help you plant for future growth in farmland property.
