Whitaker Marketing Group Partners with Terva “The Zillow of Farmland”
As we strive to be the best Iowa land company, Whitaker Marketing Group is now partnering with Terva (The Zillow of Farmland)! Terva is one of the best, new, leading startups in the nation in regards to farmland data and analytics. CEO, Steven Brockshus, started the Iowa-based farm software company in hopes to make it model after Zillow’s real estate platform, but for farmland specifically.
Terva has built two custom plug-ins for Whitaker Marketing Group. The first one, is a land value estimator located at: (http://iowalandguy.com/get-a-quote/). It gives land owners and farmers a quick way to find out how much their land is worth by selecting their farm from the interactive map and having a licensed professional estimate their land. Whitaker Marketing Group likes the estimator programs such as Acre-value by (Granular) for a quick estimate, however for the landowners interested in selling their farm there are a lot of other factors that need to be considered. Location, farmability, shape, size, CSR, CSR2, soil type, slope, drainage, water sources, hunting/ fishability, buildability, manure management, neighbors and much more. The price of farmland is a moving target. Whitaker Marketing Group strives to do our best to stay on top of the market and we watch the price of land very closely.
Follow these three easy steps below to get the most accurate land value estimation.
- Step 1, Click on the “What’s my farm worth” button.
- Step 2, Select your field… zoom in, locate & select your field on the map
- Step 3, Let us know who you are and how to get in touch with you.

With this valuation tool we will do all the work for you, we will compare past sales in surrounding areas, and you’ll receive a full valuation, soil survey, and crop history reports.
Terva has also built Whitaker Marketing Group the only comprehensive list of all the farmland sales in Iowa! This clickable map is updated weekly for the most up to date information. Whitaker Marketing Group believes in giving prospective buyers and sellers all the information we can.

Keeping up with technology in the agricultural world is tough. When farmers or land owners come to an auction company’s website they most likely are looking for one thing, “What is for sale”. We have just finished a new website launch with Ripkke Designs (http://www.rippkedesign.com/) located in Ames, IA, to make this the best experience for our website users. We wanted a simple, mobile, and user friendly website that has the horsepower to market your asset, like the biggest tech websites with the simplicity of our company’s goal. “To serve and simplify our customer’s needs, and assist in selling their assets with accelerated marketing to the highest bidder.”
