Want to buy Alberta farmland? Think going cheap will save you $$?

Cheap land can cost you.

Southern Alberta Land Broker, Shawn Hansen of Hansen Land Brokers in High River warns land buyers of cheap land prices. As what’s cheap going in can prove to be very costly on the other side.  Cheap land that has been neglected or is attached to an unproductive farm requires deep pockets to turn it around into quality soil that is fit for farming.  Manpower, machinery, fertilizers, crop, and TLC all come with a price that can shock buyers who aren’t familiar with the hidden costs of working the land.  A farm that is fully operational and made up of quality land that has been tended over years may be more expensive initially but can offer a better return on an initial investment.
