2018 Update 

Land Sales – The land market has held up well with sales for good farmland from $8,000 to $9,500 or more in central Iowa. We have had sales from $2,950 for timber to $9,000/acre for better land. Our inventory is low now but 5 pending sales. The tillable farms that are less than perfect are harder to sell than before since many folks looking for the good ones and not as interested in fixing problems. That is understandable but these farms are opportunities also.

Farm Leasing – It will be a challenging upcoming year with crop prices not doing well plus the weather to the north and drier conditions in the south. This is why we use a lot of flexible cash rent leases, get good data and make sure the farms are as good as they can be. There is no excuse not to do the best you can in managing land and it is hard work if done well. Still a lot of owners guessing at cash rents with no data to make an evaluation. Owning rented land is a complicated responsibility and fortunately we have good clients that appreciate someone in their corner.
