Iowa Farmland Auction Results
March 11-17, 2018 80% Tillable Farms
Farmland Sales Summary
It was a slow week in Iowa farmland auctions last week. There are only 3 auctions with 7 tracts to report on this week but the prices fell in line with previous weeks farmland prices. The near future looks slow as well, the volume of farmland sales are very low right now and a perfect time for a seller to consider putting their farm on the market. For neighborhoods that have not experienced multiple sales close together, the outlook is very good right now. When you have a week with fewer than 5 auctions in 99 counties its easy to see the demand is building.

Farmland Sales Volume in Iowa
If you look at this week's charts below you will see our sales volume for farmland in Iowa is decreasing for 2018, not a surprising detail as January and February are typically busier months and as we move toward planting season we expect to see auctions taper off through the planting season and then gain momentum later in June or July. This week we are reporting on only 744 acres which is the lowest volume week of the year so far and our first week under 1000 acres of 80% tillable farmland.
