“Some days I can’t believe I’m getting paid to do this,” said local Farmers National Company broker Bill Gaughan.
In the last two weeks Gaughan has been taking clients from Indiana and Minnesota, who are moving to the Kansas City area, to look at homes in the country.
“You can change or build a house to be exactly what you want,” Gaughan said, “but the difference for people wanting to move to the country is always in the land, and the land is far less open to change than a house. Because of that, each country property is unique.”
When assisting sellers in marketing a property, it’s a challenge for Gaughan and his colleagues at Farmers National Company to adequately convey the beauty of some of their listings. So they have opened a channel on YouTube to help give prospective buyers a sense of the beauty and serenity of these properties that can’t be experienced from static photos.
“We joined Farmers National Company because no one markets rural property like they do,” Gaughan said.
Farmers National Company has set a new standard when it comes to marketing rural property. The Kansas City market has seen that difference as business has exploded since they became part of the largest rural real estate and agricultural services company in the nation.
The introduction of the local YouTube channel for Farmers National Company is just one example of the innovative ways Farmers National Company markets rural property. Simply go to YouTube, enter Farmers National KC and click on the channel. There you will see some extraordinary properties:
