“Given our past experiences, we couldn’t have imagined turning over responsibility for the sale of our farm to anyone other than FRC. They served as a dependable and trustworthy guide through the sale process, helping us secure a suitable buyer for our treasured family lands.”
David W. Mathews – Private Landowner
Do you have land to sell or want to make a purchase?
A multi-county timberland owner wanted to liquidate a portion of his assets but was unclear on the best disposition strategy. He requested FRC complete a full appraisal to help him discover the best approach. After consultation, we recommended he avoid a full appraisal and its cost. We suggested FRC complete a comparable sales study, market analysis, and a sellout plan. This approach helped clarify the market and its nuances and helped him identify the best tracts to liquidate. FRC helped him successfully navigate the market and accomplish his objectives, while saving money at the same time.
