The search features are designed and maintained by Farm Credit Services of America’s business partner Lands of America.
For farm ground (corn, soybeans) and ranch land, “Acreage” is the most common property description and best search option. Using Advanced Search users can search by “Acreage” and choose a range for the number of acres, a range for listing price or ranges for both. The word “farm” is not a not a searchable option.
For country homes, “Residential” is the most common description and best search option.
Most listings include photographs, some listings include multiple photographs. In most cases the photographs allow a quick understanding of the property type: many crop ground listings show the crop grown or an aerial photo, residential properties typically include a photo of the house.

Why do the search options seem so limited?
The Lands of America network has property listings from all fifty United States. Lands of America has found that while words like “farm” and “rural” have relatively common and established meanings in the four states FCSAmerica serves, these words can have very different meanings across the United States. Because language and meaning varies across the United States, Lands of America search options limit the search choices in a manner that will provide users with more search results. While the search features might not perfectly meet all of your needs, making changes to the search options would increase FCSAmerica cost significantly and FCSAmerica strives to deliver value-added services cost effectively for our customer-owners.
