HIGHER CONFIDENCE: Despite lower commodity prices, land prices are holding steady in eastern Nebraska. That's likely due to above average corn and soybean yields in 2018. Meanwhile, land sold online is often selling higher than land listed for sale at private treaty. This could be due to higher confidence in the land market due to other bidders bidding on the land.

Land holding steady in eastern Nebraska

Land Report: High crop yields in 2018 are likely responsible for stable farm real estate market.

Land prices in eastern Nebraska are still holding steady despite low commodity prices, BigIron Realty reports. Crop yields were above average again in 2018 and are likely responsible for holding the farm real estate market together. Land selling online is selling higher than land that is listed for sale at private treaty. One explanation may be higher confidence in the land market due to other bidders bidding on the land.
