I'm a younger farmer who rents a fair amount of land and I am building equity pretty fast. I definately want to purchase land but I would like some opinions of those who have successfully purchased land over the years. When you purchase land that is financed do you pay down the debt as fast as possible or do you pay down until the land will comfortably cashflow itself and then just pay it down over the term of the note? The way I see it paying down the debt fast is a good idea but at the same time if it will cashflow itself it also makes sense to continue to save equity/cash for the next deal. For guys who have purchased a lot of land of the years and financed a good portion of it how did you handle it?
