What Is Your Iowa Farm Worth?

Are you considering selling your farm and want assistance on gauging what your Iowa land is worth? You’re now in the right hands. We at Iowa Land Company are here to help you determine what we believe is the value of your farm because we use much than a CSR2 point to determine the value of your farm. Iowa Land Company doesn’t rely on a computer program to determine your land value because we know that if you’re considering selling your farm, it’s one of the largest financial decisions of your lifetime and like any harvest, a lot of work comes first so we want to give you our one-on-one traditional farmland evaluations.




Farm Location

Location can be the biggest variables when calculating land value so it’s important to not over look this step.

CSR2 Value

Yes we certainly do consider your Corn Suitability Rating (CSR2) value when giving our traditional farm appraisal because it is very important.


We want to hear your story. How has the farm been taken care of? Who has farmed the farm? Etc…

Current Market

We look at what is currently on the market, how long similar farms have been on the market, for what price and how that farm compares to yours.

Recent Sales

We have access to our in house sales report that we file per county. We keep a close eye on recent farms located near your farm.
