Iowa Land Auction Prices, February 1-7, 2019
Several acres were auctioned this week compared to last week. 3,551 acres were auctioned, of which 2,790 were tillable. The market appears to be steady. If a former well-known U.S. president owned farmland many years ago, would that add value to the land? This will be decided on February 12, 2019 in Charleston, IL. There will be 590 acres auctioned in Coles County, Illinois. One of the tracts, 30 acres, was owned by Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States!
