Land is moving in Southwest Kansas!
Faulkner Real Estate contracted 2,880 acres for 5 Sellers in 5 counties in Kansas in January. All properties were sold using our "Private Auction" (bid by phone) sales method developed here in Ulysses, Kansas by Mark Faulkner 11 years ago. The "Private Auction" still proves to be the popular choice for our Buyers and Sellers of farm ground in Southwest Kansas. Of the 2,880 acres sold much of it was in CRP or expired CRP with about 960 acres of Irrigated ground being sold as well. Land prices remain strong as Buyers take advantage of thousands of acres of CRP coming out of production. Everyone always asks, "Why are people selling?" Well, there's not one answer. Some farmers are selling their land because they're ready to retire and don't have family to pass it on to. Some are facing difficulties financially or need cash to improve other land or investments, and the largest percentage in January were absentee owners of CRP that was either out of contract or expiring soon. This mix is what keeps the numbers of acres of land for sale steady, and keep !
Currently Faulkner Real Estate is offering over 7,600 acres of land in 6 counties in Kansas, Colorado and Oklahoma for sale. Each parcel of land is for sale by Private Auction.
We are offering two very large pastures, 3,905 acres and 1,420 acres each. The largest parcel is in Texas County, Oklahoma just 7 miles south of Elkhart, Kansas and 5 miles north of Four Corners, Oklahoma. It offers a large parcel of native grass and a few tracts of CRP, 2 water wells, 2 wind mills and fair to good 4-wire fence around the property. The 1,420 acre parcel is in Stanton County, Kansas just 3 miles south of Manter, Kansas on the Manter Grade. This property offers good fence, corrals, and water lines running to 7 tanks on the property.
We have to pieces of Kansas irrigated farm ground coming up later this month both with good water. The first piece of Kansas irrigated land is located in Stevens County, Kansas along HWY 25 just 5 miles south of the Grant/Stevens County lines and 10 miles north of Hugoton, Kansas. This property is approximately 480 acres of good silt loam farm ground mostly 0-1% slope. It has two wells pumping, one pumping around 1,300-1,400 gallons per minute and another pumping 600-800 gallons per minute. This is great looking irrigated farm ground!
The second parcel of irrigated land for sale is located in southeast Morton County, Kansas south and east of Rolla, Kansas. Totaling 620 acres with 400 irrigated acres this is a great opportunity to own some affordable Kansas irrigated land with two irrigation wells pumping about 1,200 gallons per minute and 700 gallons per minute.
We also have some good looking dryland farm ground in Morton County, Kansas for sale northwest of Elkhart, Kanas, as well as a piece of CRP just east of Richfield, Kansas.
Theses are just a few of the 7,600 plus acres of land currently being offered for sale by Faulkner Real Estate in southwest Kansas, Eastern Colorado and the Oklahoma panhandle. Please feel free to contact me should you need more details or have questions.
