AcreTrader Management handles all aspects of administration and property management, from insurance and accounting to working with local farmers and improving soil sustainability.
AcreTrader disburses excess annual income to investors. We would generally expect an unlevered yield of 3% - 5% for lower-risk properties. Note that this cash yield is in addition to expected annual value appreciation.
Investors will generally hold ownership for 5-10 years. Upon sale of the land, you receive your principal and any appreciation over the hold period. Should you wish to sell some or all of your shares, you may be able to do so on the AcreTrader
