Charlottesville Habitat partnered with Habitat for Humanity International, Lowe’s, and more than 300 Habitat programs in the United States, India, and Canada for International Women Build Week (which was March 8-15) to highlight the global need for safe and affordable housing. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Habitat for Humanity’s top priority is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and community members. For this reason, much of the public involvement for 2021 International Women Build Week was hosted virtually on Habitat Charlottesville and Habitat International’s social media accounts. On Saturday, March 13, Habitat volunteers gathered socially-distanced on site to install siding to the exterior of two new homes Habitat Charlottesville is building on 12th Street. Among this small group were Habitat Homebuyers and future neighbors Tashae Anderson and Jeronda Jackson, who will purchase the single-family attached homes this summer, realizing their dreams of homeownership. This will be the first time that the two neighbors worked on their homes’ job sites together. Both mothers to two children, 12th Street homebuyers Tashae and Jeronda bonded quickly over the shared excitement their homes bring for their families. They cannot wait to have their own backyards to freely and safely play outside, paint the walls in their own rooms, and sit on their front porches. Tashae says her girls, ages 11 and 5, ask her to drive by the site a couple of times a week to check on the progress. Tashae’s determination to provide a stable home for her girls has led her to complete countless hours of financial education and volunteer sweat equity on Habitat’s job sites. She says it has almost been like having a part-time job, but for her girls, she’d do it all again. She’s been dreaming about them running around in a yard getting to play while they’re young. This summer, they will.

ou’re in good company if you are looking for a Central Virginia farm. Not only is agriculture Virginia’s largest private industry, but our area is also home to the most famous farmer in the world: Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface Farms. Don’t believe it? Ask Siri. Salatin and his Augusta County farm have been featured in Michael Pollen’s 2006 bestseller, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and the films Food, Inc. and Farmageddon. He gained fame by shunning conventional agricultural practices. And he has been instrumental in changing the face of farming and inspiring others to jump in. Whether or not they’ve heard of Salatin or Polyface, plenty of city dwellers

dream of moving to the country for more space and more land. If you are ready to shift from dreamer to doer, three critical steps will help you successfully make the leap. An expert REALTOR® who knows farms, land, and estates can make the difference between a dream come true and a nightmare. Knowing what you want to accomplish with your expanded acreage will help smooth some bumps. And, whether you’re a buyer or a seller, understanding how to navigate this market will assure you get the best value on either side of the transaction.

Not Just COVID-19 COVID-19 has increased demand for larger lots, acreage, farms, and estates. But the pandemic shouldn’t get all the credit.

Long before anyone heard of COVID19, interest in farming was growing. Slow Food, food sovereignty, regenerative agriculture and farm-to-table movements have been years in the making. These have influenced a new generation of gardeners and farmers who appreciate the impact that even small-scale agriculture can have on our ecosystem. On the heels of those movements, a whole new crop of buyers has emerged. The pandemic just threw gas on the flames. John Ince, REALTOR® with Wiley Real Estate, says “There has been a remarkable surge of interest in farms and estate properties since COVID-19 hit. It’s not just the fear factor of folks wanting to be away from crowded situations but also the realization that working from home is a viable option. That’s a huge game changer that is likely to persist long

after COVID is in our rear-view mirror.” And it moves dreamers into action mode as many are released from having to live close to where they work. These buyers are being driven by a variety of goals. REALTOR® Steve White, with Roy Wheeler Realty Co., knows every client is different. “Some buyers are interested in the extra land so they can have multiple houses to create family compounds. A few are interested in large scale production. But almost everyone has some farming in mind. A chance to grow their own food, be a little healthier, maybe raise a few chickens. The common thread is finding that rural property that is still close to amenities.”

10 in your corner. Any agent can sort list-

ings by size, price, and location. That’s not enough if you want to buy land for more than just window dressing or are selling a property with unique agricultural advantages. To expertly navigate your way through transactions involving working acreage or large properties, get a REALTOR® who understands the lay of the land. Pam Dent, REALTOR® with Gayle Harvey Real Estate, Inc., stresses how important it is to align the features of the land, regulations and incentives, with a buyer’s goals. Making a purchase without bringing all three of these together will result in frustration, buyer’s remorse, and missed opportunities. First match what’s possible on a certain property with what the buyer wants to do. Factoring in available programs and incentives in support of those goals can make the buying process easier and perhaps more affordable. A REALTOR® with extensive experience in farm and land sales will be in the best position to make that happen.

Many buyers are not entering the farms and estates market to generate income. Dent sees a mix of clients, “those seeking privacy, and those wanting to work the land. Some people only want the views and space; others want to enhance their self-sufficiency.” Ince agrees. “For many during this past year, the idea of living out in the country was a new one. As the idea matured in their minds so did the excitement of a new lifestyle with chickens, goats, and a vegetable garden.” Once COVID-related events made relocation possible or more desirable, a whole new group of potential landowners entered the market. Buying acreage can trigger different opportunities, depending on how it is categorized. Jacob Gilley, with American Farmland Trust, explains why the definition of a farm is usually set at a bare minimum. He says the bar is set low on

“Suddenly, the roles are reversed. Buyers want as much land as they can afford. There has been an amazing uptick in sales, interest, and pricing in the last 12-18 months.” purpose. “It allows landowners to take advantage of different tax incentives and sustainability programs to protect farmland and support farmers. Government cash share programs for fencing, cover crops and sustainable practices can help a new farmer get started.” Gilley co-owns Heaven’s Hollow Farm with his wife Jennifer in Madison County. If a land-based enterprise generates as little as $1,000 worth of sales per year it

can be classified as a farm in Madison County. By comparison, Polyface Farm in Augusta County generates several million dollars per year. Marketing directly to consumers and agritourism have multiplied the opportunities for farmers to profit from their land. The Nelson 151 Craft Beverage Trail shows how lucrative winery, brewery, and other beverage tours can be. Farm-to-table dinners right on the

farm are increasingly popular. Horse farms market group rides. Harvest Hosts, HipCamp and other platforms make it easy for campers to overnight in farmbased locations. As an event site, Cole’s Greene Acres farms in Greene county hosts everything from weddings to picnics. A Better Way Farm & Goat Dairy in Waynesboro offers tours and a “goat herd share” program for fresh raw milk. Local farmers supply restaurants with microgreens and other produce. These and other creative enterprises can provide non-traditional income for farmers. You don’t need to be the next Joel Salatin. But knowing where your interests lie and what your priorities are before buying is important. Having that conversation with the right REALTOR® is crucial. With that information in hand, she can help you acquire a property that will support those dreams.

Inventory Driving the Market In 2021 inventory is the name of the game. White remembers the 2008-2009 real estate crash that sent owners of large properties selling. “They realized they didn’t need all this land and sold as prices plummeted. The farm and estate land market has never really recovered from that crash. Until now. “Suddenly, the roles are reversed. Buyers want as much land as they can afford. There has been an amazing uptick in

It’s becoming more and more of a seller’s market, threatening to leave buyers out in the cold this spring. sales, interest, and pricing in the last 12-18 months.” The market for farms and estates has quickly caught up to the general residential real estate market. It’s becoming more and more of a seller’s market, threatening to leave buyers out in the cold this spring. One of White’s clients had his property on the market for more than three months with not much action. “All of sudden I had three showings in the same day and two cash offers.” Dent too has seen parcels sit static for months, then there may be a dozen showings in a week and multiple offers. Ince sees the same trend. “While the residential inventory has been low for the past 24 months, there was still a reasonable selection of country properties on the market, especially if one was willing to look in our surrounding counties. The first quarter of 2021 has been a different story with multiple offers coming in and some sales well above asking price. We have a perfect storm for a continued seller’s market in the near future, but those who have been in the business long enough know what happens when escalating prices get out of hand.” This market should encourage anyone who is considering downsizing from their large country properties to make the move now. Ince expects to soon see those stalled property listings come to market. “Buyers can expect some new inventory this spring so we may see some balancing out as 2021 matures.” While the inventory is buoying prices, Ince says, “Low interest rates continue to be a strong driver which has been incentivizing buyers, making them more willing to pay higher prices.”

The Opportunity is Now Ince advises that this is the ideal time to close the deal. “The most important thing for buyers and sellers to consider right now is that this is opportunity time. Sellers can expect a robust turnout for a new listing priced in the sweet spot, while buyers can get a loan with monthly payments making that higher price pal-

atable. It’s rare to have such significant advantages for both sides of a transaction so we should have a very active market for the rest of 2021.” With favorable interest rates, unprecedented direct-to-consumer marketing opportunities, and expanding resources for protecting farmland, this may be the best time to jump into the farm scene. Be assured the Shenandoah Valley Young Farmers Coalition is cheering you on. French Price is part of the Coalition’s leadership team and works for Virginia Cooperative Extension. “Many of our members farm a few acres or want to start but struggle to find affordable land. Most of us garden. It’s amazing to see the mentoring that happens between farms of varying sizes whenever we can get together.” Dividing farm property can provide an opportunity. Last year, a Florida investor bought an operating farm near Gilley. “His plan is to eventually break it up into 40-acre farmettes that give smaller operators a foothold. I also see more non-operating landowners who keep the farm but lease it to someone that will work the land and treat it with respect.” In a nutshell, COVID-19 unleashed interested buyers. Low mortgage rates help justify the decision to buy. And the direct-to-consumer market is creating new paths to profitability. White says “For sellers, it’s one of the best markets in the last 15 years. They can finally get their price.” And for buyers, Dent helps them look at each available parcel with a creative eye. “Perhaps it doesn’t have everything you want, but does it have the basics and give you a workable entry point?” If you find something that works, you’ll be hooked. Ince enjoys being part of this movement. “From condo to country is a wonderful transition to be a part of and I have yet to see anyone take a step back once begun.” Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.
