Farmland Auction Floyd County Iowa

Behr auctions Cerro Gordo county iowaOn July 31st our team will be headed to Floyd County Iowa to sell 138.6 acres in cooperation with Behr Farmland Auctions.  Together we will represent the Merfeld family in the sale of their Century Farm near Marble Rock Iowa and we do very much appreciate the opportunity to work for the Merfeld Family.  This will be a LIVE AUCTION just like you are used to, but it will also have online bidding.  Some bidders will be onsite, and some will bid via the Internet during the auction.  If you can’t make the auction and want to bid register for the auction online and bid from anywhere.  The technology makes it very easy and bidders that try it always enjoy the experience and convenience.

The northern Iowa farm is located on the eastern edge of Marble Rock and it has everything buyers look for in farms.  Good drainage, flat, square, multiple access points, high CSR2 rating,  hard surface road, close to market and a good production history with a good tenant farmer that has taken very good care of the farm. For a farmer its excellent high quality tillable acres that would help add capacity and earning ability and for the investor its a high quality land investment that will be sure to draw high quality tenants.

The Merfeld Family purchased the farm in 3 tracts starting in 1898 and completing the 3rd transaction in 1917 which means you have the opportunity to buy a farm that has not been on the market in over 100 years.

Are you completing a 1031?  The sellers are agreeable to any closing date prior to November 30th so if you need to close quickly they will accommodate you. If you wish to closer later in the year you will have up to 4 months after the auction to close.  If you have not sold your exchange property this gives you time to sell your farm, close and complete your purchase of this farm.
