2018 Farmland Sales Increasing

More landowners determining that now is the time to sell.

The amount of land Farmers National Company has listed for sale is up 21 percent compared to last year at this time. The company says landowners may have recently inherited the land or have owned it for years, but sellers have watched the land market, and some want to take advantage of the still historically good land prices.

Some sellers are thinking that there is more downside risk in land prices than upside potential, so for them, now is the time to sell.
