Price/Acre - November 26 - December 2, 2016

December 8, 2016 - Peoples Company


There were 30+ tracts of land sold at auction between November 26th and December 2nd. During these auctions, there was a total of 3,637 +/- acres available for purchase and of those acres, 3,316 +/- were tillable acres.  Overall, the sale results were “good” with several “strong” sales. That said, there were four tracts that were “no sales”.  The Price/Acre ranges from $3,100/acre for a tillable tract in southwest Iowa to $11,500/acre for a tillable tract in both northwest Iowa and eastern Iowa. The average Dollar ($) / Tillable CSR2 point for the tracts that successfully sold is $114/pt.  

A few of the highlights from last week:

  • 80 acres sold in O’ Brien County for $11,500/acre with a CSR2 of 74.5
