Urban and suburban areas are moving closer to many California farms. More people create additional trouble and expense that may cause the farmer to consider selling and either moving to a new location or using the money to invest in other businesses. Any farmer facing such a decision should know the facts about relocation—how much his land is worth, how much actual profit he can make from its sale and how to go about the complicated process of selling.
