California Drought - Impact on Bee's

The drought doesn't only affect crops it also affects of bee's overall health. The impact of the drought is a real issue among Apiary experts.   An estimate of 1.6 million bee colonies now being moved here to California almond orchards for pollination. But that is not the only problem...huge increase in beehive thieves here in California.  With the almond pollination it is the busiest time of the year. Reports of stolen beehive have been received by the Sheriffs Department around our State. In Butte County alone so far 200 hives reported stolen the is an estimate of almost $100,000 loss.

 

Wind Farms and Property Values

Wind Farms and Property Values  

Yolo County really seems to support Wind Development. This is a controversy subject. The proposed wind farms touches the real estate industry in several ways.


If you have land that is located in a suitable area and want to learn more contact Yolo County for more information. Good read: "A Spatial Hendonic Analysis of the Effects of Wind Energy Facilities on Surrounding Property Values in the US, Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, working paper, 2013.

Long term impacts of wind turbines on wildlife and surrounding properties remain unresolved in many eyes. As a Land Consultant I can tell you it does affect the value of surrounding properties and the way of life. If you live in an area of a proposed wind farm and want to learn more just contact me I am happy to help.

Pricing Farm & Ranch, Land and Recreational Properties

by Linda Pillard

Pricing Farm & Ranch, Land and Recreational Properties

Pricing Farm & Ranch, Land and Recreational Properties is no easy task.  There are 3 different prices.  First there is the price that the seller wants for the property, then there is the price their Realtor recommends, then there is the price that a buyer is willing to pay.  Is it price to high OR too low?  By choosing a land specialist from the start, and then acting on what that specialist recommends as a "just right" market value should attract a buyer every time. 
 
The "just right" market value creates fabulous results almost like magic.  A land specialist has the training, resources and knowledge to accurately price the property at which buyers are likely to offer full price or create multiple offers.  The property owners that hires a land specialist and who acts on the land specialist advice are most likely to net the maximum price the the existing market can deliver.

Let not forget the neighbors and their friends who are always willing to give their advice.  Why Mary's property sold for $6000 an acre and your property  is worth so much more because I believe it is a much nicer property. This advice is what gets you into trouble when selling your property.  Your neighbors and friends are not land specialist and do not understand how to price it and all the complexities involved in the pricing itself.  If you are thinking about selling your ranch, farm, land, or recreational property It pays to use an Accredited Land Consultant. 
 
Remember all Realtor's are trained to try to sell homes, but only a few of us are educated and trained to sell and price farm & ranch, land, and recreational properties.
