Good reasons to get your farmland appraised

With interest rates so low and farmland values so high, now seems like a smart time to have your farmland appraised by a real estate expert like me, the Farmland Man.

Cash rental rates have increased so fast over the last decade, it may be hard for you to know how fast the value of your land has gone up in comparison. Our appraisals are most useful for real estate financing, estate planning, settlements, or determining listing and sale prices.

I offer prompt, quality appraisals at an affordable price. All my appraisals comply with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP), the most widely recognized set of standards in the real estate industry. I also follow the Uniform Agricultural Appraisal Report format that is widely recognized and accepted within the agricultural finance community.

I am a specialist in farm and rural real estate appraising, including:

  • Rural residences

  • Bare land

  • Recreational land

  • Grain handling facilities

  • Other farm operations (dairy, hog, farrowing, nursery & finishing units)

If you are interested in selling your land, but you need to know the market value, please contact me the FarmlandMan, at 320-894-7528 or I will provide quality help for a reasonable price.
