37 +/- Acres Tillable Farmland Auction

DreamDirt is hosting the Cody and Karen Shay Farmland Auction. This property, 37 +/- acres of tillable farmland, will be sold via DreamDirt’s online platform, BidCapture.

Timed Online Land Auctions

This type of auction uses ascending bidding against a descending clock, or countdown. During this auction, no audio or video is broadcast and the closing is controlled by the computer countdown clock. While most auctions have a starting time, this auction ONLY has a closing time. Timed Online Land Auctions were pioneered by DreamDirt across the Midwest and are possibly the biggest advancement in auctions today. We at DreamDirt feel that Online Auctions provide five key things:

  • They directly connect bidders to the auction
  • Help mitigate social pressures
  • Ease bidder friction
  • Reduced Fees and Commissions
  • Speed and Urgency

Every aspect of our Online Land Auctions is exactly the same as a traditional, live in-person auction. The online auction provides some unique advertising benefits, but other than that , everything except how we take bids is the same. Want to learn more?
