September 2018 Land Sales Summary

Based on data shared through the Lands of America Comparable Sales Program in September 2018, there were 161 properties listed as sold by REALTORS© Land Institute Members. This represents approximately $62 million and 25,000 acres of land and rural real estate sold across 26 states, the most active being Texas, Illinois and Georgia. September 2018 sales activity by REALTORS© Land Institute Members participating in the program decreased by 24 percent over the previous month and 7 percent compared to sales volume from the same period in 2017.

Congratulations to Peoples Company’s Jared Chambers, who was the agent representing the sale at auction of two South Dakota cattle ranches totaling a combined 8,075 acres. The month’s largest recorded land sale by REALTORS© Land Institute Members participating in the Lands of America Comparable Sales Program, these properties were auctioned for an undisclosed sum. These ranches sit in the heart of western South Dakota’s ranching country close to the small town of Faith.

The most expensive land sale recorded in September by REALTORS© Land Institute Members participating in the Lands of America Comparable Sales Program was the $5.3-million sale of a large dairy farm in south-central Florida by Benjamin E. Crosby, ALC, of Crosby & Associates, Inc. The Winter Haven, Florida-based brokerage, in business since 1983, specializes in commercial and agricultural land sales in the Southeast, particularly Florida.
