Buyer Broker Services
The qualifier to all of this potential is that agricultural real estate investments are a blind item for most buyers. The myriad complexities of self-sustaining agricultural entities can create an environment that deters many investors. Day to day operations are a constant concern, production capabilities must be maximized at the lowest cost to insure a profit; ongoing maintenance is crucial to assuring appreciation and the taxation of agricultural operations constitute a speciality on to themselves and first and foremost...How do know if you're buying quality or a financial nightmare...?
JLM represents a total over 150 years of experience in the ranching and farming industry of the Western U.S. Our agents are all lifetime farmers, ranchers and realtors. Many having held posts as instructors to the Montana State University system, extension specialist, outfitters, and even the heads of the Montana Angus association. When we represent a buyer our first concern is locating those properties that stand up to the intense scrutiny of professionals that spend every day reviewing hundreds of aspects of farms and ranches all over the West. Each purchase will include an assessment and due diligence program that insures that each property meets all represented points and a purchases price that is indicative of its potential. If it doesn't, we'll find another one. Again we are not concerned about the sale...We're concerned about what you're working with after the purchase.
JLM offers a unique approach to residential purchases. As a rule actual home purchases are done as part of our support work for larger investments. For example, often times farms or ranches can be slightly remote and buyers need a residence close to town to facilitate travel arrangements, shopping, guests or just a night on the town; or at times companies looking to relocate commercial operations need to acquire housing for executives or their work force, this is where we can help. We have one dedicated broker, who ranks in the top 10 in residential sales, who's only priority is finding homes that in some manor compliment our clients need for in-town housing. All these properties are viewed from an investment position, in terms of rental potential, appreciation, quality neighborhoods, maintenance and upkeep requirements and are planned with an upside exit strategy in mind. Because of the regional nature of the housing markets these programs are limited to Montana and northern Wyoming.
