Is Farmland the New Trend?

Posted by Jenelle Kirton on July 11, 2016 at 5:20 PM

With more homebuyers looking toward new and innovative ways to conserve and reduce their environmental footprint, how likely is it that farmland locale will become the primary item on their list of new home necessities?

Agrihoods, as described by Ed McMahon, Senior Resident Fellow for the Urban Land Institute, are not a new concept. Simply put, they are residential developments that have been strategically placed near local farmland. As more buyers are becoming more versed in growing their own produce, and looking for quality locally grown produce, agrihoods are becoming more of a desired location to make a purchase.

Buyers are looking for more options in terms of locally grown and fresh foods, not to mention the ability to thrive in fresh air and a simpler lifestyle. If you haven’t already, put local, or reachable, farmland on your map for potential homebuyer requests.
