How do you set up the rent agreement?

We typically set up a 3-5 year rental agreement, so that there is a longer-term relationship. This helps align incentives between both parties, so that the land is taken care of longer-term. These agreements typically come with a right of first purchase, which gives you the opportunity to purchase the land from the investor before they can sell to anyone else.

Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla, ut commodo diam libero vitae erat. Aenean faucibus nibh et justo cursus id rutrum lorem imperdiet.

Broker FAQs

Can I request an offer for any of my listings?

Our buyer network is typically more interested in private transactions, so we prefer that all offer requests are either private listings or properties that recently 'no-saled' at auction. FarmlandFinder is not a listing website & our platform does not provide broad exposure. Properties in our network are carefully analyzed and matched with a short list of targeted buyers whose criteria specifically match the profile of that farm.

I just had a "no sale" at an auction. Can FarmlandFinder help?

Yes. Simply request an offer and you can expect to receive an offer in as little as 7 days.

Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

When I bring a seller to the table, how do I get paid?

If you have a listing & fee agreement with the seller, you'll get paid by the seller. Anyone who buys a property through FarmlandFinder pays a 3% service fee, which means we get paid by the buyer. This creates a win-win for both parties.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla, ut commodo diam libero vitae erat. Aenean faucibus nibh et justo cursus id rutrum lorem imperdiet. Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

Can I get paid for bringing a buyer to the table?

Short story: yes. Long story: the only way buyers get access to properties in our private marketplace is by creating a buyer profile. Once they have a profile, we'll send them emails for any property in our network that matches their purchasing criteria. When you sign up a buyer profile, you'll receive 1% fee on any property they purchase through FarmlandFinder - helping put more money in your pocket with less effort.

Is FarmlandFinder a brokerage?

FarmlandFinder Brokerage LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of FarmlandFinder Inc.
