Monterey, LA, October 09, 2023 --( Bonnette Auction Company Presents: Farmland Auction of 960± Acres in Concordia Parish

Bonnette Auction Company is pleased to announce a highly anticipated farmland auction for 960± acres located in Concordia Parish. This auction event is set for Wednesday, November 15 at 10 am with live and online bidding.

The Strength and Stability of Farmland Investments:
Farmland is a robust investment, especially during uncertain times. As markets fluctuate and traditional investments falter, agricultural properties have consistently held their value. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the price of farmland has continued to rise steadily since 1988. This trend indicates the enduring value of farmland as an investment, which historically not only protects your money from inflation but also simultaneously yields income.

Data from the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF) Property Index further emphasizes this point. Since 1992, farmland has had returns of over double the rate of inflation. Furthermore, compared to many other assets, such as stocks and bonds, farmland has historically shown less volatility. The reason behind this stability is that the value of farmland doesn't hinge on market demand or investor sentiment. Parcels of land are often held for extensive periods, smoothing out price fluctuations over the long term.
