Land Value Considerations

CSR2

Your Corn Suitability Rating (CSR2) measures and qualifies the quality of your soil. A higher rating typically means the land will have a better value.

Location

Location has always been a huge factor in real estate, and the location of your farm in terms of access, distance from cooperatives, or proximity to towns or cities is essential to determining its value.  Aspects about the particular location such as hard surface roads also contribute to value.

Land Quality

Apart from your soil productivity, other characteristics of your land such as fertility, drainage, improvements, food plots, ponds, condition of fencing, hard surface access, easements, etc. can all affect the value of your land.

Current Market Price

Timeliness matters when determining what your land is worth. It’s important to assess the current market price for similar properties.  Our expert understanding of the current demand for farmland and more importantly, the sources of demand put you ahead.

Comparable Land Sales

What have properties similar to yours sold for recently? When we search for comparable farms, we narrow down to the last 12 months, similar CSR2 ratings, amount of acres, type of land (tillable, hunting, etc.) same county or a surrounding county, same features, and more. These comparable sales help us to evaluate the value of your land.

Improvements

Anything added to bare land is an improvement.  Homes and buildings are easy examples to understand but fence, tile, irrigation, terraces, plantings or roadways create a contribution to value as well.

What type of Land Appraisal or Valuation do I Need for my Land?

FREE Custom Land Market Analysis- Opinion Reports

The most affordable and low-cost option for those considering selling land is a real estate market analysis opinion report. These are a great tool for discovering the value of the land you own! Many sellers do not need to provide federally compliant appraisals, and just want to understand the worth of the asset they own. DreamDirt provides these as a free Farm and Land Market Analysis for you. Fill out the Free Evaluation form below to get in contact with an agent!

Certified Land Appraisals

Certified Appraisers can provide you with a certified appraisal report that is both thorough and federally compliant. DreamDirt can connect landowners to a network of professional farm real estate appraisers to help you quickly and for a reasonable fee. Certified appraisals are required for lending and some other purposes, but overall are seldom necessary and can cost a significant amount.

Non-Certified Land Appraisals

A non-certified appraisal for a farm or land real estate is a middle-of-the-road option in terms of expense, time, and service. Though only available when federal lending is not involved, non-certified appraisals are used most commonly for estates or setting a tax basis. The resulting reports satisfy most valuation requests and help you comply with many estate or divorce requirements. DreamDirt performs these in-house for a reasonable fee.

Family Land Division Evaluations

This can be an intense process for some families, for others its a breeze.  It will depend on the complexity and relationships involved.  If you have inherited land with siblings or others and desire to split the land into equal portions for individual ownership we can help you walk through that process with valuations and negotiations to ensure all parties receive a share equal to their inheritance.  Send us a message and let us know the situation and we’ll know how to get you started on the right path.

Buyers Valuation

You want to buy land, but you want an expert opinion based on careful examination and research of the market.  This is the route careful buyers take to ensure when they bid at an auction or negotiate a deal so they don’t overpay for a property.  We are glad to help you as a buyer determine the value of your purchase.  We will not provide buyer apprsaisal where we represent the sellers.  We will only provide this service to buyers of properties represented by other brokerages or auction companies.  Send us a message and let us know the details.
