Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property
My husband and I will restore the old farmhouse and farm equipment as retirement hobbies in the summertime. Portions of the farm will be rented to different tenants because we have not found one tenant for the entire farm yet.
Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property
One tenant will rent the entire 52-acre farm, with right-of-first-refusal in the event our children decide to sell.
