American Poultry Company currently sells poultry farms in LA, AR, MS, AL, GA, & MO. Our marketing is second to none when it comes to selling poultry farms. Due to our singular focus, we have more qualified buyers than sellers. If you own a farm and would consider selling it, we would like to talk with you.
Our confidential farm sale process is 5 easy steps.
The farm owner submits a “Let’s Talk” form below and we discuss farm details and price.
Once legal documentation is signed for the asking price, advertising collateral, including photography, is assembled by our advertising team.
We contact all buyers that match the property in our list of bank approved buyers.
A time is scheduled for our equipment professional and buyer to inspect the houses and equipment.
Contracts are executed, and we schedule with a local attorney to close the deal.
Should you sell your farm using a broker?
I think I know what my farm is worth and I know a guy that might buy it. Isn't that all a broker does?
The poultry brokerage business is complicated enough that if you don't sell farms every day you can make small mistakes in the process and leave over $200,000 on the negotiating table.
However, if you think that's a lot of money, you will be paying over twice that in taxes due to depreciation if you don't know how to leverage the 1031 tax code in your farm transaction.
In general, a Poultry Farm Broker is paid a percentage of the sales price to keep you from making mistakes that can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars on an average transaction. You many not need a Poultry Farm Broker if you feel comfortable with the following top 10 questions:
At what price will my farm cash-flow and what capitalization rate do lenders use in valuation, getting me full value on my farm?
How much earnest money do I collect from a buyer and what laws are associated with being able to legally keep it?
Am I comfortable negotiating a multi-million dollar transaction?
Is my buyer really qualified and what happens if he voids the contract after I have paid all the closing costs?
What upgrades are required and who typically pays for them?
Should I sell my residence or equipment under a different contract and how does this effect my taxes and basis?
What do I do to enforce my contract during contingency removals?
What time of year should I sell my farm to receive the most money?
How do I avoid paying taxes on the sale of my farm?
How long should I own my farm before selling it to make the highest return possible?
Working without a broker is the same as representing yourself in court without an attorney. You can do it successfully if you have the experience.
At American Poultry, we work almost exclusively by referrals from previous clients. By providing value far exceeding our cost, we earn your business everyday.
