Buying & Selling Farms or large tracts of land are extremely different from your everyday residential or commercial Sale. There are a lot of complexities involved in these types of Real Estate transactions. The taxation, financing, zoning, preservation and conservation easements, Act 319 “Clean & Green” assessments, residential allocations, improvement depreciation, livestock/animal contracts, Tax Deferred exchanges, coal, gas, oil, and other mineral rights, etc. create a lot of issues that should be discussed long before you actually Buy or Sell. There should be some planning done! If your Realtor/Auctioneer just signs you up without addressing some if not all of these items they might not be a good choice! Ask questions regarding these items and if you get that “Blank Look” or they “Dodge” the question, you might want to choose another realtor. You would not hire a general practitioner to do your brain surgery, so why hire the general practitioner realtor when you have the option of the top Farm & Land Realtors at your disposal. We bring Professionalism, confidentiality, ethics and integrity to each transaction. We enjoy servicing buyer clients in finding that property that becomes the family farm, their future legacy, or that vacation/get away spot from our hectic lifestyles. For you the seller, we get great satisfaction and joy in pulling the pieces together to accomplish your goals that not only include getting it sold, but getting it sold at the best price, least amount of taxation, and in a time frame that you desire. We are full time Realtors and Auctioneers and are located in different areas and service Pennsylvania and Northern Maryland. We all work together as a team, so no matter where you are or where you want to be, we can provide someone to service you!
