Land Sale of the Week: $17,300/a in Northwest Iowa

Mike Walsten

Here's another strong sale from that strong northwest Iowa area. This auction occurred Nov. 13 and involved a 160-acre farm located two miles south of Hospers in Sioux County. The farm had 154 tillable acres and a six-acre farmstead.

Big selling factor: CSR2 99.15! Considering that 100 is perfect, this is a WOW! The county-average cropland CSR2 is 85.5.

Handling the auction was Jim Klein, Klein Realty & Auction, Remsen, Iowa, 712-786-2870.

  Good price if you are a seller. Locally we had 260 acres I sale at $5600. Your reporting of only the high sales is hurting the rural areas.

  Two years from now, if corn stays under $4, that land price could drop like a rock.
