Weekly Land Auction Results in Iowa 

This week there were 24 land auctions across the state. Of the 24 auctions, 23 of them met their expectations when bringing a farm to auction. There was a total of 2,629 acres sold, 2,053 being tillable acres. Of the 24 farms brought to auction 9 of those farms brought over $9,000 per acre, which is a very strong sign for the state. We are noticing good dirt as being very stable, but as we get into medium quality we are starting to see instability in the market. This instability in the market makes talking to a land expert even more crucial than normal. It’s important to consult with a person that really knows the market here in Iowa. Some areas are more soft than others while some are still selling very strong. Not in every case in today’s market do you want to bring a farm to auction (call an agent today to discuss the traditional listing method )! Many factors go into this decision and we want sellers to understand each scenario. At the end of the day we want you to get the most out of your asset. Great dirt is still stable, trading over $100 per CSR2 point. Moderate dirt is starting to become unstable and trending downward because of the lack of demand and the uncertainty in low commodity prices, interest rate increases, and lending institutions tightening their reigns on operators.
