Things To Know To Be Successful in Farming and Agriculture

SRC Land would like to share a few facts on farming and agriculture to help guide you  in succeeding in the next exciting chapter of your life.

1. Agriculture entails growing crops, raising animals, and creating a food surplus. Additionally, science, engineering, and technology are all pivotal to the agriculture and farming industries.

It’s also important to keep in mind that agriculture is business. From the moment you contact SRC Land to the first sale of your own crop, business is involved. There is also marketing, packaging, and distribution to handle in between.

2. Agriculture and farming are in everything. The clothes we wear and the food we eat are all produced by farmers. Owning property can create many opportunities for you in the agriculture and farming world.

3. As previously mentioned, farming is a great way to create revenue. By doing research on your local community and state, you can find a crop that will not only thrive but also aid you in growing your business.

4. Farmers usually specialize in one or a few crops. Before, farmers were more like Old MacDonald and owned a little bit of everything. Now farmers have a tractor here and equipment there, and a few crops everywhere. Growing fewer types of crops gives you the ability to learn and potentially specialize in that specific type of food.

5. Farming requires modern technology. Some farmers have help from devices, drones, computers, and much more. It is common for farms to have their own Wi-Fi and security system to watch for any critters trying to destroy their crops.

6. Farming takes a lot of brainpower. There is more to farming than planting a seed and watching it grow. Farmers often have to use math and technology while keeping a business state of mind.

7. Most farmers have a passion for the land. Sometimes this passion can be developed over time, once you get to learn more about farming and agriculture.  Becoming passionate about farming can be the best way to be successful. When farming has piqued your interest, you’ll want to learn even more.

4 Reasons Why Buying Land Before Summer Rolls in is Better

Let’s face it; buying a new property, and then proceeding to move to this different location, is stressful. Even if you’ve recently purchased land for sale in Harlingen from SRC Land and completed the new home’s construction, too many other complications can cause you and your family to start dreading the move you all were once excited about.

But by using that sweet spot between the end of spring and the beginning of summer, however, you can save yourself a lot of hassle from moving into your new property before the mercury rises. Here’s why moving into your new home is better before summer hits.

1. Better Forecasts

It’s true that weather in the spring can be unpredictable, shifting from hot to cold, rainy to clear skies multiple times in one week. However, the majority of the country experiences fairly moderate weather during this season. The sun won’t be as strong as it is in the summer, so you can avoid all of that sweating and discomfort that comes with moving, and with no big holiday commotion or the heightened cold temperatures that winter can bring, moving is a breeze during this time.

2. More Availability

Most families wait until the summer to move. School is out, maybe you have more vacation days saved, and it can seem like the best time to take this next step. Because of this logic, moving companies are usually far busier in the summer. Get ahead of the game by requesting services in the spring, and maybe even enjoy lower rates since fewer people will generally be moving during this time. 

3. Help From the Family

Timing the move so it falls during spring break or right after school lets out for summer is a great way to recruit a few extra little helpers. Packing away children-friendly objects with your little ones is an excellent way to bond with them, giving you time to resolve any fears or anxieties they may have about moving to a new place.

4. Prepare to Host Celebrations

When you get into your new property and have everything settled in the spring, you’ll have just enough time to get the new place ready to have people over for summertime parties. Then when fall rolls around, you’ll have a few months of hosting experience under your belt before it’s time to begin celebrating the holidays in the winter. 

Trust the team at SRC Land to Give Your Family a Fresh Start 

This new beginning for you and your family is one you’ll remember for the rest of their lives, especially if you’re able to plan it out and minimize any hiccups that may come along the way.

Enjoy the change in weather and scenery with the ones who mean most to you in the most meaningful way possible- by opening a new chapter together.

The Covid-19 Impact on Real Estate

The spread of COVID-19 has had massive impacts on all of our lives. From getting groceries to paying rent, everything is a little bit harder right now, and many are struggling to make ends meet. One question on many people’s minds is how the pandemic will affect the real estate market.

Luckily for Texas residents, the real estate market hasn’t slowed down too much due to the virus. Now that businesses are reopening in Texas and other parts of the county, the normal way of doing things, like touring tracts of land and holding open houses, is starting up again. The process may be a bit different, but real estate is still an incredible investment opportunity.

Real Estate Investment Still Makes Sense

While there is a considerable amount of uncertainty and volatility in the real estate market because of the pandemic, the overall trend in real estate has historically always been towards higher allocations and investments in real estate.

Real estate allows individuals to invest in their future with a high probability of good risk-adjusted returns. Real estate is less correlated to other asset classes, meaning it represents an excellent way to diversify your financial portfolio.

While the value of many assets is closely tied to the overall performance of the economy, real estate is a safe investment during times of volatility in the commodities and equities markets, especially now, and over the medium to long term, experts expect to see a continued flow of capital into real estate.

Long-Term Trends Accelerated by COVID-19

There have been a number of trends in the real estate market that have been accelerated by the novel coronavirus pandemic, and experts expect these trends to continue after the pandemic has ended:

  • Rising Capital Allocations — Real estate is increasingly seen as a “flight to safety” compared to other asset classes.
  • Urbanization — The pandemic is likely to influence future urban design.
  • Technology — Work-from-home technology is likely to influence how business is conducted long after the pandemic ends.
  • Sustainability — As we return to normal post-pandemic, it’s likely that there will be a renewed focus on sustainability and climate responsibility in the real estate sector.

With a Variety of Properties for Sale, We’re Confident We Can Find the Ideal Lot for You.

Once the pandemic is over, there’s no doubt that all of us will be in the midst of adapting to a “new normal”. New trends have already begun to take hold, and governments, businesses, and communities have all faced adjustments. Still, there will be consequences to this pandemic which we have no way of foreseeing.

Despite all of this uncertainty, real estate remains a good investment. While the stock market is yoyoing wildly, real estate has been relatively more even-keeled. If you are considering purchasing a plot of land in Texas on which to start your American dream, you’re already on the right track. Now, all you need to do is contact the team at SRC Land to start looking.
