What a ride!

I cannot believe it's been 25 years since my father, Mark struck off on his own and started Faulkner Agency in a tiny (600 square foot) office on main street in Ulysses, Kansas. I remember helping he and my mom, Suzanne, scrape the old tile (probably asbestos laden) off of the concrete slab floors of their new office space. The office was a modest cinder block building with barely enough space for a few desks. Over time the business grew and my family made the big decision to knock a hole in the north wall of our quaint office and double our space to a modest 1,200 square feet. Our office space wasn't the only thing that changed over time; our name did too. As I mentioned above, we started as Faulkner Agency. Dad was a born salesman and

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

Western Kansas and Easter Colorado Land Sales Strong in 2010. 

Faulkner Real Estate, is celebrating another record breaking year of residential and agricultural sales in Western Kansas and Eastern Colorado.

However, in the mighty midwest conservative values and good business principles kept us, while not untouched, less affected by the economic downturn. 

Land appreciation did level slightly in 2009 compared to 2008, but still

Conservation Reserve Program Land (CRP) Selling Well (edit/delete)

Many farmers in the Western Kansas and Eastern Colorado region have expressed concern to me about the millions of acres to come out of CRP in the coming years. In 2009 alone we saw thousands of acres come out of the program and much of it come up for sale. Many feel that the increase in supply will decrease demand. While this theory is well proven and mostly true. Currently there has not been enough over supply to decrease demand. 

In fact in some cases it is causing the opposite reaction. Many farmers are seeing this an an unprecedented opportunity to obtain the land they've sought for years that was tied up by CRP and absentee owners. Now that CRP is not as a viable investment option
