2019 Tama County Farmland Auction Results



Tama County, Iowa Land Prices | Values

    What is the current price for farmland in Tama County, Iowa? $7,842 an acre is the average price for farmland in Tama County according to the latest December 2019 Iowa State University Farmland Survey.


    Every January I like to sit down and analyze the sales that were brought to market the previous year in the counties I broker the sale of land in because it provides me confidence I understand the local market when assisting clients sell their farmland.


    The average price of farmland that sold on auction in Tama County was $9,406 an acre in 2019. More importantly, the average tillable price per CSR2 point is $112. The average CSR2 of the farms offered for sale at auction in Tama county in 2019 was 87.6. I personally track all land auctions across the county. There were 4 public farmland auctions inside the county lines in 2019. The results are as follows.


    I used all 4 auctions in my report because they were more than 80% tillable so they were all great comparatives when looking at what the value of tillable farmland is worth in the county. In my survey to come up with a county average farmland value for Tama County, there were a total of 555 acres offered to the public. 525.07 acres of the total acres offered were cropland acres; therefore, the acres offered to the public were 94.6% cropland acres. The average CSR2 rating of the 4 tillable farms that were brought to auction that was more than 80% tillable was 87.6. Therefore, my calculations prove the current price per CSR2 point Marshall County is $112.

Why We 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 I lean heavily on what public auctions have done over the past 12 months when evaluating a client’s farm. At public auction, 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 – $600 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.
