Accurately pricing a farm, ranch, hunting or agricultural property is essential for attracting prospective buyers and achieving the highest possible price. The team at Western Land Group are experts at pricing and evaluating farm and ranch operations in the Peace River region. Their methodology includes assigning accurate values based on production, total acreage and structural improvements. They employ the use of several information databases to acquire relevant sales information throughout the Peace River.
Your time is important and therefore, it is imperative that your Realtor is vetting prospective buyers prior to arranging showings. The team at Western Land Group utilizes a series of pre-determined questions designed to ascertain the viability of a buyer prospect and their ability to purchase a farm, ranch, hunting or agricultural property. They then seek to set up showing times that minimize interference with their client’s day-to-day operations.
Ongoing communication and updates between a Realtor and their clients is essential to ensure everyone is on the same page and pulling in the same direction. Changes in the market, micro/macro-economic circumstances and government policy all have the potential to impact the sale of a rural property. It is important that everyone remains informed on all such topics.
The team at Western Land Group provide (at a minimum) monthly marketing updates. These updates show prospective buyer viewership numbers across their various marketing platforms and detail their marketing efforts to date. This way you always know how your property is being received in the marketplace and if a new pricing strategy is warranted.
The team at Western Land Group has individually negotiated hundreds of transactions and have received many hours of training in negotiation. The team members always seek a win-win transaction where all parties emerge satisfied with the results.
The LandQuest office has an all-inclusive conveyancing staff who prepare the transactional documentation to be sent to both the buyer’s and seller’s lawyer for final completions. The team members of Western Land Group help to explain this process and eliminate any hurdles before they arise. You can expect a smooth, stress free deal completion.
