Whether because of long-term appreciation benefits, as a non-stock or bond dependent investment, or simply because, as the saying goes, “They just aren’t making any more of it,” now is a great time to consider purchasing farm and/or open land.
Roger Parshall, owner of US Farm and Land Real Estate, a division of Keller Williams Farm and Ranch, is well-versed on both sides of that coin. Currently living in Tarkio, Mo., and a life-long Northwest Missouri resident, Parshall was raised on a farm near Burlington Junction, one that he still operates with his wife. For him, farming is second nature.
“Growing up we raised cattle, had farrow-to-finish hog operations, and worked row crop acres,” Parshall said, “so I really understand not only what goes into farming, but also the key things buyers are looking for, and/or should consider when looking for that type of purchase.”
US Farm and Land specializes in farm sales, hunting properties, estate properties, equestrian estates, recreational land, commercial properties and other land specialties. Parshall also possesses 25 years of concrete construction business experience, a valuable asset for those looking at property with an existing home or structure, or to add one down the line.
Prospective buyers will find several currently featured listings on the company website (Usfarmandland.com).
In Rockport, there is a beautiful, secluded, 90-acre parcel surrounded by Missouri Conservation Land with a gorgeous, almost new, six-bedroom, three-bathroom, 5,200-square-foot home. It also includes a separate, lower-level guest/mother-in-law quarters with its own private entrance, two bedrooms, one bathroom, a living room, laundry room and its own kitchen.
In addition to offering some of the best hunting in Northwest Missouri, 40 acres are tillable. There are also two 30-foot by 50-foot structures on the property; one is an insulated workspace with a concrete floor and a wood stove and the other is set up as a garage/machine storage.
In Richardson County near Stella, Neb., Parshall is representing two spectacular parcels. The largest is 171 acres, consists of Big Nemaha River bottom and hill ground, and is great for deer, turkey and waterfowl hunting.
The second encompasses 78 tillable acres, most of which were planted just last year, making it great laying farmland for a new owner who puts in a little bit of dozer work.
As a licensed helicopter pilot, Parshall flies his chopper to view and photograph farms and land for his clients. His company also utilizes a wide array of tools, including soil and fertility, topography, floodplain and other maps, that agents and brokers who primarily deal with residential properties do not have available to them.
Another benefit to working with Parshall, who is licensed in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska, is that he is a member of both the KW Farm & Ranch Division and the Global Property Specialists Division (GPS) of Keller Williams, the world’s largest real estate company.
“Buying or selling rural property is more than a simple real estate transaction, it is a major financial decision,” explained Parshall. “So it’s very important that buyers and sellers work with a knowledgeable professional. And if you are a seller, we understand that you only get to sell your property once. So use the opportunity to ‘get the power of the largest real estate company in the world behind you’.”
Working as part of KW Farm & Ranch, North America's most influential group of land professionals, and their GPS, gives Parshall the ability to market properties to over 600,000 international agents, translate properties in 19 different languages and syndicate listings to over 80 top international websites throughout the world.
Despite the intricacies, Parshall said that buying farm and land is a solid investment for any investor portfolio, and a first choice for many people. With that choice, he can help.
“When working with clients,” said Parshall, “I believe in honesty, integrity, great communication and taking the time to guide you through the sometimes complicated issues encountered during rural real estate purchases, at the highest level.”
