AcreTrader’s Latest Farmland Disposition Exceeds Target Returns

August 15, 2023

Farmland Investment Platform’s Recent Exited Investment Returns 15.8% to Agricultural Real Estate Investors

AcreTrader, the land investment platform at the intersection of agriculture, tech, and finance, recently added another successful farm disposition with the sale of a Quitman County, Mississippi farm. Funded on the AcreTrader platform in June 2020 and sold in June 2023, the investment resulted in a preliminary Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 15.8%.

The 236-acre property is located within the Mississippi River Delta, known for its strong groundwater resources. The farm has Class A soils and was highly improved prior to its acquisition by AcreTrader. Precision leveling served to transition the ground from primarily soybean to primarily rice production. Properties suitable for growing rice, a higher-value crop, can command higher lease rates in the region. Additionally, two duck blinds were purchased by AcreTrader Management, LLC on behalf of investors for waterfowl hunting, which yielded additional income. This exit provided a return well beyond the expected targets to AcreTrader investors due to market conditions and demand in the area. This exited offering was not conducted by AcreTrader Financial, LLC, registered broker-dealer, member of FINRA|SIPC.

Farmland investments have shown resistance to market volatility, with returns remaining positive during economic downturns of recent decades, including the Dotcom Crash, the Great Financial Crisis, and the Covid-19 pandemic. Alongside a historical correlation with inflation* and lower volatility than commercial real estate, farmland’s performance has received growing attention as an alternative investment.

“It is encouraging to witness this kind of performance amid today’s uncertainty. Our hope is that farmland can continue to serve investors as the portfolio diversifier it’s historically been. It’s a powerful resource in more ways than one, and we work hard to steward land responsibly with our farming partners, as well as our investors’ interests in it,” said AcreTrader Founder and CEO Carter Malloy.
