History of California Water
- Worsening cyclical droughts
- Even in years of plenty, millions of acre feet are diverted away from farms
- SGMA cuts off farm access to farms reliable source of water
- Still difficult if not impossible to get answers from water districts
- In the last 12 years, 1 million acres of farmland went fallow and 10,000 farms went out of business (Ag Census)
- 750,000+ more acres predicted to go out of production (PPIC)
Many Are Far Behind
Real estate agents that rely on the traditional two sources of water analysis, well pump test, and SGMA warning will have unhappy buyers, who feel uninformed and won’t be repeat customers, and worse – won't spread positive word of mouth.
While Others Are Ahead
Agents who quickly provide buyers and sellers in-depth water, property, and valuation information will have happy clients and smooth transactions. These agents can also identify prospects and comp properties with ease.
