Why Track Public Auctions to Calculate Land Value?

Nobody can argue buyers set the market for all assets. Farmland is no different. A farm is worth only what someone is willing to give for it. That’s why we lean heavily on what public auctions have done over the past 12 months when evaluating a client’s farm. At public auctions, everyone gets a fair chance to bid on the farm. Buyers will bid their absolute most and when they have hit their highest dollar amount. They typically go $200 – $500 more an acre because they can’t stand the farm they know they may only get one opportunity at in their lifetime is about to get away from them. You can also gain inside information on what Calhoun County farmland values are doing by visiting the latest 2019 Iowa State University land survey.
