We can still be reached at our office telephone number (317-844-7400). Your call will be answered by our office phone system and you may leave a voicemail in the general mailbox or with a specific attorney. All voicemails left in the general mailbox will be routed to the requested attorney or staff.

What should I keep in mind when buying farmland?

Buying farmland to expand your farm or start up an operation is not an easy process. It is quite different than how you would buy other types of property and requires some attention to details you may not otherwise consider.

Meredith Agrimedia explains you can find farmland for sale in many ways, from auctions to family sales. Make sure you go through a legitimate channel when searching for land to avoid scams.

Consider leasing

If you cannot find the proper land to match your needs, you may consider leasing land to begin with. It really depends on your goals as to whether or not this will work. However, it can be a good start if you want to get crops in the ground right away but are having problems finding something you want to buy.

It is also something to consider if you are new to farming. You can test things out without making the huge investment in buying land.

Look all over

You may not be able to find the land you want in your immediate area. You should be open to looking in different areas, even in another state. Keep in mind that real estate prices can vary by location, so you may be able to find a good deal if you look in another county or area.

Understand the market

The market for farmland can be up and down just like the housing market. You should do your research into the current market and trends. This can help you figure out the right time to buy to get the best value for your money.

Buying farmland is an important investment. It requires careful consideration to find the right land for your needs.
