Get the latest in farmland investing and selling farmland


Video Transcript

The idea of AcreTrader was pretty simple. The idea is really that it should just be easier to invest in farmland.

Investing through AcreTrader allows individuals to gain exposure to a great alternative asset class with low minimums, intense due diligence, competitive fee structures, and complete deal transparency, all of which are very important and we'll discuss later in the presentation today.

From the investor's perspective, our value proposition is very simple. Each form goes into a unique LLC. You own the LLC. The farm that's inside of that LLC is rented out to a farmer. And we take care of collecting the rents, taking care of all of the headache from end to end, making that a truly passive investment for you, the investor.

So why AcreTrader? We're not the only way for you to gain exposure to farmland, and it isn't a one-size-fits-all. However, we do offer distinct advantages alongside very competitive fee structures.

Our primary mode of compensation is acting as a real estate broker. Those are involved in a land transactions just like they are in selling a building or a home. Those are already involved the industry anyway.

So that is our unique approach to being compensated and what allows us to keep our fees at—or below, really—the industry lows. And what we're really excited, again, to bring forward is low fee structures for you, the investor.
