accurate valuations of farm and land real estate

iowa farmland appraisals-1We sell farm real estate in Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri and Minnesota so it makes sense that we have a keen sense of the value of farm, land and ranch properties including livestock confinement, agri business related real estate .  You have multiple options for valuation of farm and land real estate assets which can be determined by the situation and why you need the evaluation.  Common situations that require real property valuations include estates, liquidation of business assets, dissolution of marriage, divorce or estate planning, tax filings, or investment analysis.  Expert guidance and consultation will help you determine the type of report that you need.

Market Analysis reports that value farmland or real estate assets are less thorough than a farmland or land appraisal and often cost less money but satisfy the requirement.  Appraisals can be certified or un-certified appraisals.  Typically when federal lending is involved certified appraisals are required but in many cases non-certified appraisals are acceptable and cost less money.  Certified appraisals often take 30 plus days to prepare and can easily be 60 to 90 days for more complex or larger farm and land properties.

A non-certified appraisal for farm or land real estate is the "middle of the road" in terms of expense, time and service.  Non-certified appraisals are only an option when federal lending is not involved.  Often used for estates or setting a tax basis these reports satisfy most valuation requests and effectivly help you comply with many estate or divorce requirements.
