Buying Land

I am a younger farmer trying to grow my operation. I purchased 15 acres a few years ago and currently rent a few other fields. I am interested in the property across the road from the land I have already bought. It is not for sale but the owners live down state and have no ties to anyone around the area making me think they may be more willing to sell. Any suggestions of how to approach them about purchasing their land?

Re: Buying Land

Send them a letter explaining your situation. You realize that the farm is not currently on the market but should it become up for sale you would be interested in being the buyer.

 

That letter might pique their interest or it may not. Or it might open the door for a rental arrangement. Who knows what might be come of it.
