This Farmland Calculator can be found at: https://www.iqcalculators.com/calculator/farmland/ Visit our home page at: https://www.iqcalculators.com Follow us on Twitter @IQWealthCalcs Video Transcript: Wouldn’t it be great if you knew what crop prices, and crop yields would be 10 years into the future before you bought a piece of land? A farmer could make a nice living if that was predictable. But the fact is, we can’t predict crop prices.....or crop yields. And that’s one reason IQ Calculators created this calculator for farmers. Hi, I’m Bob from Kansas, and I made this short video to help farmers who are thinking of buying their next piece of ground know how to use “FarmLandROR”. This farmland rate of return calculator can help you evaluate your projected rate of return EVEN with unknown variables such as crop prices and yields. I’m not going to go into deep detail in this video .....but for now, I’m primarily going to talk about a feature in this calculator called the Rate of Return Matrix. The Rate of Return Matrix was created as a solution for farmers to be able to compare rates of return on farmland by doing a sensitivity analysis around crop prices and production rates. A sensitivity analysis is an exercise where select variables are adjusted higher and/or lower to measure and calculate what-if situations.......in this case crop prices and yields are those variables. So how does it work? To start out, you’ll need to project and enter information related to the purchase or acquisition of the land, your expected income & expenses, and the sale or disposition of the property. Just use the arrows on the side of the page to slide right or left to each section. As you begin entering in your information, here’s a useful tip.... If you don’t know what a field means.... or what it is asking for, you can hover over the tooltips for more info. You can also hover over the big numbers and even some of the rows in the table in order to learn definitions or gain a better understanding Now back to the main point... if you notice, as you scroll left to right on the input fields, you can see that the second group of fields is for income. Included in income is of course your crop prices, and your crop production...or yield. Notice that these aren’t input fields but rather they are input “schedules”. Here is where you’ll enter or project your crop prices over the next 30 years. Sounds impossible right?..... Don’t worry....this calculator makes it easy. When you click the price schedule, you’ll notice that it asks you for 4 key pieces of information. It asks for a Low Price, a Mid Price, and a High Price. By entering a low, mid, and high price, it allows you to calculate the rate of return for your worst case....your best case....and your base or expected case for crop prices. And it also asks for you to enter an inflation rate or a rate at which you expect crop prices to increase each year. If you don’t want to enter an inflation rate, change the field to 0. And if you want to enter your price projections manually, you can do that also by clicking directly into the field....and entering your data manually. And don’t forget about the copy down option in each field. With one click of the button, your data copies down the entire column. And it’s pretty much that simple folks. Next, we’ll look at the production schedule. You’ll find no surprise here...it works exactly the same way....just enter your low, mid, and high projected production rates and the calculator will do the rest. Now as we exit out of that schedule... ....the field right beside that is the number of farmable acres. This is how our revenue will be determined....by taking crop prices, times the number of units produced per acre, times the number of acres. Now you may be thinking, great, so how does me entering this information become useful? Well, first, if you enter that information as well as your acquisition info, your expenses, and your disposition info, you’ll get these 4 important numbers that are calculated here. Again, if you don’t know what these numbers mean, use the tooltips to learn. In addition, you’ll also get this simplified income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement in this table below....which projects out to 30 years. Not to mention, it also calculates your internal rate return out to 30 years. All of that information is extremely useful...and I’m glad that it’s there...but remember, I want to tell you about the “Rate of Return” Matrix. And that is what we find when we click this button here.... At first glance, you may be wondering what all these numbers mean.... but what the Rate of Return Matrix does...is it takes your low...your mid....and your high price and production projections, and creates exactly what its called....a rate of return matrix.

See the full blog post at: http://REtipster.com/landinvesting Vacant land is one of the most overlooked and underused real estate investments in the world. I’ve found that most real estate investors have some HUGE misconceptions about raw land as an investment. A lot of people have the erroneous notion that vacant land is a weak (or even pointless) investment opportunity because… - It doesn’t produce income. - It just sits there and nothing happens. - It’s boring. It’s an unfortunate misconception because the truth is – vacant land is capable of producing some serious cash flow and it’s one of the best investments in the world BECAUSE of its hands-off nature. I LOVE the fact that land just sits there and NOTHING HAPPENS. The simplicity and stability that comes with owning the right piece of land (purchased at the right price) can far outweigh the myriad of problems that come with owning any other type of real estate. If you’ve overlooked vacant land as an investment opportunity in the past, you need to take a few minutes and get educated about what land is all about. Here Are 10 Reasons You Should Be Investing In Land: 1) With Vacant Land, You Don’t Need to “do” Anything to the Property. 2) Raw Land is a “Hands-Off” Investment. 3) Statistically, Vacant Land Owners are Highly Motivated to Sell. 4) Raw Land Investors Have Virtually No Competition to Deal With. 5) Vacant Land Investors Call Their Own Shots. 6) When You Learn How to Research Properties Effectively, you can Buy and Sell Vacant Land Properties Without Ever Seeing Them In-Person. 7) Add Seller Financing to the Mix and You Can EXPLODE Your Income Potential. 8) Vacant Land is VERY Inexpensive to Own as a Long-Term Investment. 9) Raw Land Gives its Owner Peace of Mind. 10) They Aren’t Making Any More Of It. Land Investing Is A Huge Opportunity! This niche is without question, the most powerful strategy I’ve used to build my real estate investing career. I’ve bought and sold dozens of vacant land properties and generated a lot of passive income by selling them with Seller Financing. You can do it too and I'd love to show you how! Come check out the REtipster Club at http://REtipster.Club - and we'll take a deep dive into how this real estate investing strategy works. #retipster #sethwilliams #landinvesting #realestateinvesting #realestate

http://www.3fatallandbuyingmistakes.com Hi, Mark the LandGeek here. Let's talk about those 3 fatal mistakes that I see the average real estate investor making every single day. First big mistake -- you've got to call the county recorder and confirm that that seller owns the property. So what do you do? First of all, you find out exactly what county that property is located in. Then you quickly go on at naco.org, and it's www.naco.org. That lists all the counties in the country. Do a quick search. You can do with the state, you can do the county -- whatever you want to do, but make sure you go there. Then all you need to do is if you don't want to talk on the phone, you can email the recorder and simply ask who owns this property at this legal description. They will email you back where they'll tell you it's Frontier Equity Properties LLC. When was it recorded? And that gives you a big clue as to how long did that seller own that property. Are they buying it for long-term? Are they flipping it? What's going on with that property? It kind of gives you a little bit more in the story anyways. So now you've got that information. Again, email our seller now and say, "Hey, can you fax me or email me a copy of your recorded deed for that property?" When they do it, we get to go, to take some time, a little sketchy. If they don't do it at all, don't buy the property. What I have seen is people go online and they can just easily copy now whatever ad is online and say, "Hey, that's my property". They can use a fake PayPal account or a fake Escrow account and take people's money. The typical term for this is a 'phishing' scam. That is the number one fatal mistake that I see people make. You've got to confirm that that seller owns that property; otherwise, who knows what you are getting into. Now there are situations where I have actually sold property on an auction and that's a whole other ballgame because I am just controlling that. If that's the case, then you need to have a copy of the auction agreement to see that they are controlling that property. Otherwise, look out - not a good thing at all! All right, second most fatal mistake I see the average real estate investor making online is they get really excited about the property. They are going to build their dream home there or they are going to put their RV on the property. They are just going to camp out and hang out six months out of the year, or they are going to raise sheep, they are going to do something cool on that property. But they don't confirm with the County Planning and Zoning Commission if what their use for that property is allowed. And so they will invest thousands of dollars, ultimately to be disappointed, and 99.9% of the sellers out there, they don't guarantee that property. You are stuck with it and now whatever dream you had to do on that property is wasted, and then you've got to go on and try to resell that property and so whole hassle and just a big bar of disappointment. So, what do you do? Like we did with the first mistake, we've got to contact the County Planning & Zoning Commission. We are going to go back to our website www.naco.org. We are going to find our county and we are going to call or email planning and zoning. We are going to give them the legal description of that property along with the assessor's parcel number and we are just going to ask the questions -- what restrictions are on this property? What can I do on this property? Can I build a house? Can I raise sheep? Can I camp? Can I put my RV? All these things are very important when trying to determine that your use for that property is allowed. So it's very, very important that you do that. The third most common fatal mistake I see buyers making every day and being really, really disappointing with their purchase, is not calling the County Treasurer to confirm that the taxes are paid current. This one is really something that I have seen time and time again, bite people on the tush. So it's really important that again, we are going to go back to our site www.naco.org -- N-A-C-O, we are going to find our County Treasurer, then we are going to shoot them an email -- again, with the legal description and assessor's parcel number and that information you should be able to get from your seller very easily and it should be on the ad. If it's not, you need to email your seller and get that information. And then you are simply going to confirm the taxes are paid current. If they are not paid current, you need to email your seller and ask them, "Who is responsible for these back taxes? I assume you are." If they say, "Oh, you are responsible for those back taxes", then you've got a decision to make. Well, how much are they if their owner is going to pass on that deal? If they are reasonable and you are getting at a good price, well, maybe pay the back taxes -- big deal. http://www.3FatalLandBuyingMistakes.com

Want to invest with International Coffee Farms? Check them out through the REtipster affiliate link and learn more about how it works: https://retipster.com/coffee Check out the full blog post for more details: https://retipster.com/coffeefarm And don't forget to listen in on our conversation with David Sewell, Founder of International Coffee Farms: https://retipster.com/27 Given my interest in farmland, I was fascinated when my friend Keith Weinhold told me about a company called International Coffee Farms he was investing in. Here's how it works: - An investor can purchase a half acre parcel of land for $18,900 ($18,000 for the land purchase and $900 for the transfer taxes). - International Coffee Farms (ICFC) acquires underperforming suitable raw land and existing coffee farms in Panama that can be planted or "turned around" to become very productive, Specialty Coffee farms. - Once the property is deeded to you in your own name (or entity), - - ICFC provides turnkey management, so it creates a truly passive source of income for decades into the future. - The average annual return is projected at 12%. Cash flow typically begins 15 - 18 months after you invest your money, and the money is paid annually. - Aside from the solid, long-term prospective income that can come from this kind of investment, it also provides a good, honest career for the local farmers and their families in Boquete, Panama. - They get paid living wages that include education, medical, pension, and accommodation benefits. If you care at all about investing in socially and environmentally sustainable projects that actually help people and improve the world (i.e. - things that give real estate investors and capitalism a good name), this is something you'll probably be interested in. So how exactly does an investor make their money from this kind of investment? When the coffee farm generates revenue, the first 20% goes to pay the coffee farmers and all related expenses of running the farm operation (wages, seedlings, equipment, etc). The next 16% portion goes to pay the administrative expenses of running ICFC. After those upfront operating expenses are covered, the remaining 64% gets paid back to the investors. All the Panamanian taxes are paid prior to you receiving this money, so you don't have to worry about paying any portion of your distribution to the Panama government (however, you will have to report this income on your federal tax return). In the early years of the operation, the farm doesn't have much to produce, because all the plants start as seedlings and aren't big enough to produce a harvest. However, as the trees continue to grow, so does the harvest, along with the global revenue of the coffee farm, and that's where (according to the projections) things start to get fun. :)

For more information please see the links below... Over extended periods, farmland has outperformed more conventional investment instruments and provided an element of stability in a diverse portfolio by delivering consistent capital growth that is not impacted by erratic market trends. An opportunity for private investors to capitalize on direct investment in a Mango plantation in Panama is available through a company with an excellent record of accomplishment in offering safe, secure and due-diligence tested projects in the agricultural sector. In Brief, the Farmland Investment Comprises of: - A minimum purchase of one hectare of land through fee simple transfer granting the investor absolute title to the land -Each hectare is planted with 200 Mango Trees, a hybrid variety with a tougher, fungus resistant skin - Annual production from one hectare is around 58,000 lbs of fruit and the trees are productive for between 60-80 years - The investment parcels are situated on a 760 Hectare farm with rich top soil and access to clean, fresh water in an area where productivity will not be affected by unpredictable weather or the influence of changes in climate - A team of experts is employed to fully manage the investment plots, including the planting and cultivation of the mango trees Why Invest in Panama There are many reasons why Panama has earned and deserves its high ranking as an attractive investment location in the emerging Latin American market. If you have been looking to diversify your investment portfolio to include assets with long-term capital growth driven by the income generating potential of the asset, supported by the fundamental principal of supply and demand, you may well need to look no further than investment in a Mango Plantation in Panama.

Deciding whether to buy or rent farmland can be a difficult decision. Lance Stockbrugger explains the benefits of both in this video. • Interest rates affect land prices – the lower they are, the less overall cost for the land • Far too often, people make land purchasing decisions based on emotional reasons rather than economic truths • Interest rates also affect whether you should sell or keep your land • Relationships are key in land rental – both parties need to be well informed so they can work together as a team

WindRock interviews Hunt Stookey, Director of Research and Investment Strategy at Ceres Partners. Mr. Stookey discusses why farmland values, despite strong performance, are not overvalued and offer a great opportunity for the following reasons: - Caloric consumption growth from a rising standard of living in China and other developing countries; - Shortages in global food stockpiles; - Low debt levels and lack of institutional money by buyers of farmland (typically other farmers); and - Substantial income from leasing farmland to operators which is especially relevant in today's environment of ultra-low interest rates.

How to buy Land & Farms LAND BUYER'S TIPS 1 http://www.littlefamilyfarm.com Floyd County Virginia SUBSCRIBE & keep up with videos http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=lcfgroup See list of all "Buyer's Tips" http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5BFA696AF53E32EE&feature=plcp Write out your thoughts as you answer the following questions: What will be the primary use you have for the property- immediate and long-term? What is your purpose in buying it? Are you looking for a presumed permanent stay, or are you buying for an interim period? Maybe only for weekend recreation? For retirement? Assuming you have determined a budget and allocated a certain amount for this new home and property, what price range are you comfortable with?Are you able to pay cash for the property? Do not forget that taxes and insurance will be added costs associated with your purchase. How much acreage can you physically manage? In what area will you look for acreage? Give careful thought to the commute: to and from work, school, place of worship, areas of interest,etc. What is the proximity to your friends and family members? Is there enough shopping and available services in the surrounding area to supply your needs? Topography is important as it pertains to construction and accessibility. Personal preferences vary and the usefulness of all of your acreage maybe affected. Some love the views. Others can't stand to be stranded in the winter storm. What is the access you will have to your property-does it suffice? If you can find a parcel with a peaceful spring or creek flowing,or a pond to fish, woods for hunting/ hiking, or pasture for an animal or two, is that of additional interest to you? Restrictions... know what restrictions you consider tolerable and protective, and which ones you would prefer to avoid. For instance,will you be allowed to construct the home you want on your property now or in the future? Are your pets or animals welcome according to the declaration of restrictions associated with your desired property? What about business activity at your home? If you need to sell the property in the future: consider the saleability of the property you wish to buy. Look over your notes and visualize again what your dream property may look like. Try to narrow your search and compare only properties you decide in advance will be suitable.

Dave Ramaswamy, Partner - allied Venture gives an overview of why Agriculture in South America has excellent fundamentals and is well-positioned to feed the burgeoning population in India and the world. Contract farming - can grow soya, wheat,sunflower, peanut, beans and pulses, sugarcane, jatropha and take output to india in raw or processed forms Food processing - setup/acquire oilseed crushing, fruit/vegetable processing facilities Think Agricultural Outsourcing - just like India in software, China in hardware - South America in agriculture Contact: Marcos or Dave at [email protected] www.alliedventure.com Latin America farmland investment highlights: Prices have fallen due to the global crisis; good entry point in 2009 for long-term investors. Farmland Prices are even lower than those in punjab and tamilnadu Productivity in Argentina/Brazil/Uruguay is three times compared to that in India, in the case of some crops like soy. No unskilled labour problem since everything is mechanised and outsourced; 1000 hectare farm can be managed by 3 to 4 subcontracted workmen. Use of latest agricultural machines and equipment; skilled agronomists and farm managers available. No water problem.. South America has 20% of world freshwater reserves. Logistics, warehouse and transportation world class Clear land titles; low population density means no land squatters. No limits on size of foreign land holdings. Context: India has been importing more than billion dollar worth soy oil and sunflower oil from south america every yr India also buys wheat and sugar from time to time India needs to invest in farmland overseas as it is doing in the case of petroleum fields. Issue of food security. In India, population increases by 15-18 million every year, adding a new Argentina every 32 months, new Brazil every 10 years.

To see links or read the transcript of the episode, visit us at: https://mebfaber.com/2018/07/25/episode-114-david-gladstone-farmland-is-one-of-the-most-stable-assets-one-can-own/ In Episode 114, we welcome entrepreneur and author, David Gladstone. We start with David’s backstory, which dovetails into how he got into farming, and subsequently, launching a farmland REIT. Meb asks for David’s broad thoughts on investing in farmland. David tells us “farmland is one of the most stable assets one can own.” He goes on to say how it correlates with gold, not with the stock market. David gives us an overview of the farming landscape – how corn and wheat are the big categories, but this isn’t where David goes with his REIT, too much competition. He focuses more on berries and specialty crops, which are far more profitable. He mentions how tree/vine/bush crops have a great long-term record for making money for farmers. Next, Meb asks about operations – does David manage the farms? Just rent them out? David tells us they use triple net leases with their farmer tenants. Sometimes they will also have a revenue participation, but that’s unusual. David goes on to say how farmland is becoming more scare, so they choose farmers who are experienced and trusted. As an investment, farmland has done quite well. NCREIF publishes a farm index – it has done 12.2% annually over the last 10 years. David believes that due to the growth and stability of farmland, it’s an excellent place to put money – especially as it’s a hedge against inflation. He references a Buffett quote that touts owning farmland versus owning gold. Meb asks whether there are any current trends in the farming space. David tells us the number of acres per person is declining. It’s now down to about 0.5 farmed acres per person in the world. The conversation segues into water. David makes the point that his team only buys farms with access to their own water. This makes a huge difference. He references the California drought in recent years and notes it was an incredibly profitable period for them since their farms, with their own water supply, continued operations. Next, Meb asks about David’s framework for finding new farms. What’s the process, and what’s the capital structure? David tells us that’s what important is to have a tremendously strong farmer. They only deal with the top 20% of farmers in any growing area, so it’s a detailed vetting process. In terms of capital structure, they tend to finance about 50% of the purchase price. They use a variety of lenders. The guys soon turn toward “risks.” David tell us that rising rates are a risk since they use debt. As rates rise, the price of the farms they purchase will need to drop in order to make the numbers work. Another risk are tariffs. This has a been a big problem for seeds. What if China or Mexico reduces their purchases? There’s far more in this unique episode: David’s thoughts on expanding farmland REITs globally… the role of automation in farming… and why there aren’t more farmland REITS. If you’re curious about farmland as an investment, this is definitely the episode for you. Get all the details in Episode 114.
