With an emphasis on farm production land, from an income approach. As the farming industry evolves, many are making long-term investments that will yield returns far into the future.

And, they are more water-conservative than traditional, annual row-crops. Water conservation, advanced farming methods and innovative crop planning paint a bright future for the South Plains.
Determining value by means of the income approach and also the replacement cost approach, as it applies to the seller, the end-user and the investor. Whether it be industrial, retail, multi-family or hotel, we have the experience to drill down into every project.
And don't forget common sense, a lot of people do when it comes to income property. An assessment of past performance and future projections can be a valuable part of a feasibility study.
