Nationwide Marketing Farmland Sale

This week I want to cover a popular question we get asked from our sellers – “What do you offer for marketing and what makes you different than other land companies?” A big difference DreamDirt provides is our nationwide marketing and advertising compared to other farmland auction companies. We offer all types of farmland sales services including brokerage and auction services. Additionally, we offer multiple auction types including both online and on-site. With confidence, I can say that we offer a much more thorough marketing package than our competitors. We do double the marketing and advertising compared to our closest competitor and 5x-10x more than other auction companies in the marketplace. To learn more about the specifics of our marketing strategies, check out our blog post “DreamDirt’s Masterful Marketing Plan.”

Our national advertising is a very comprehensive strategy that has propelled our company to the top of the farmland auction space over the past decade. Our grasp on digital technology and its benefits to our farmland sellers has made our services highly effective. Our costs associated with selling are not a set price and each farm auction is individually assessed for its fees. I can tell you that we DO NOT charge any additional fees other than commission. We do not charge per bid fees, marketing fees, or administrative fees. Our fee is based on the farm size and necessary marketing.

We have numerous resources for marketing that are easily obtained at our disposal. For example, we provide low-cost advertising which gives us the ability to reach more people for less money. We easily offer the safest possible selling strategy that takes into account all our seller’s interests. Our no-risk auctions have put hundreds of sellers at ease and made the process much less stressful for them.

Iowa Planting Season and Farmland Auctions

Planting is sure picking up speed here in Iowa finally! Farmers have been out in the field and working hard playing catch up due to the late start. Unlike planting, farmland sales in Iowa were slow last week. There were only two tillable farmland auctions that happened in Iowa during the week of May 7th – 13th with 80% or more tillable acres. Butler County, IA was the leader this week with 37.31 acres selling at $15,200/acre or $172.52/CSR2. The second auction was in Calhoun County, IA totaling $10,550/acre across 105.33 acres and resulted in $163.82/CSR2.

County Total Acres Price/Acre CSR2 $/CSR2 % Tillable
Butler 37.31 $15,200 87.6 $173.52 94.32
Calhoun 105.33 $10,550 64.4 $163.82 95.89
Total 142.64 $12,875 $168.67
